How Often Should I Get A Comprehensive Eye Exam?
The frequency of your eye exams will depend on the type and severity of vision problems you have. It is recommended that you have regular eye exams every two years. If you are over 40, then it may be necessary to get an annual comprehensive eye exam while if not there’s no need every year; however, this is dependent upon how old were when diagnosed with certain conditions such as hyperopia or presbyopia which can onset at any time during life span!
Benefits of Comprehensive Eye Exams
A comprehensive eye exam is an important part of your routine check-up. It checks for signs that may indicate cataracts, glaucoma, or other conditions which can cause vision loss and affect the quality of life as well! It’s important to be aware of these possibilities so we can prevent them from developing any further. Most of these health risk conditions have no symptoms in early-stage and can only be diagnosed with a comprehensive eye exam.
A comprehensive eye exam is an integral part of your healthcare. It can help identify early signs of disease, as well conditions that might not show up until later on in life such as glaucoma and cataracts!
The doctor will conduct many tests including looking into the interior corners (cerebrospinal fluid), exterior surfaces around both eyes, plus frontality lights–all this to ensure you’re safe from potential problems with vision.
Depends on the type of eye exam you are going in for. If you are going for a regular eye exam, we recommend going in without your contacts so we can examine your eyes easier. If you are going in for a contact lens exam you should wear them. It’s important to wear them when getting a lens fitting to see how your current ones fit or the previous ones prescribed to you fit.
An eye exam will vary on how long it will take. It all depends on factors like your age, symptoms, medical history, family history, etc. It can last from 15 minutes up to an hour.
