Preserve Your Vision Into The Future

It is safe to assume that aging can affect your eyes’ health and vision quality, but how your eyes change varies from patient to patient. To help detect, diagnose, and manage these symptoms, we offer fully comprehensive eye exams featuring the latest eye care technology, including retinal imaging.

Regular eye exams can help you get in front of your eye health issues before your vision is permanently damaged, allowing you to preserve your sight and maintain your quality of life.

Please book your appointment with our team today and let us help you achieve the vision you deserve.

Why Have an Eye Exam?

Eye exams are the very first step towards managing and preserving your vision and eye health. Our eyes are also a window to our general health, which makes routine eye exams very important.

Comprehensive eye exams at Insight Eyecare not only test your vision, but our Optometrists view the back of your eye – looking at the blood vessels and nerves, all of which could be affected by certain health conditions. Some of these conditions can be very serious and catching them early can actually save your life.

By looking at the back of the eye (the retina), we can detect diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and cancers, such as brain tumors and ocular melanomas. Our eyes can also reveal and show signs of aneurysms, liver disease, thyroid disease, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological disorders.

Eye exams are important throughout your life, but different risks are associated with different age groups:

Eye Exams: Ages 18 – 64

Between the ages of 18 and 64, eye diseases can occur without your knowledge. Our optometrists recommend having an eye exam every year to catch these issues and preserve your vision.

Eye diseases, like glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration, are prevalent in patients over the age of 60. Because of this, our optometrists recommend having annual eye exams.

However, if you’re at risk of developing an eye disease, you may be advised to have an eye exam more frequently.

You’re considered to be at-risk if:

  • You or your family has a history of eye health concerns
  • You have medical issues related to eye conditions
  • You take medications with ocular side effects
  • You wear contact lenses
  • You have had eye surgery
  • You have had an eye injury
  • You have a high refractive error

What is an Eye Exam?

Initial Discussion

Before every eye exam, your optometrist will discuss your eye health, health history, and family health history. This conversation will help your optometrist determine any risk factors your eyes may have, orientating the exam to match your needs and visual goals.

Please, feel free to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have! Our optometrists are here to serve you and your needs, so the more information you can provide, the better your optometrist can tailor the exam to match you.

Following the initial discussion is the visual acuity and strength assessment. This part of the eye exam will help your optometrist determine the prescription you need for your glasses or contact lenses.

During the assessment, your optometrist will use various tools to help determine your prescription, including eye charts and a phoropter. Once your optometrist has assessed your vision, it’s time to look at your eye health.

The eye health screening part of the exam is crucial for discovering and diagnosing any potential eye diseases. Most common eye diseases, like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, are asymptomatic in their early stages. Only an eye exam will be able to detect their existence before your vision is damaged.

We use state-of-the-art retinal imaging and tonometry techniques to help diagnose eye disease. Depending on the particular issue you may have, your optometrist can help develop a management plan to preserve your vision.

Once your optometrist has collected the information they need, they will provide you with any prescriptions, medications, or recommendations to help preserve and protect your vision.

Adult & Senior Eye Exams

More than 80% of a child’s learning is based on their vision. Make sure your child is reaching their full potential at school. Eye exams provide so much more than just a lens prescription; they’re vital in detecting and treating vision problems that could affect your child for the rest of their lives. Many eye diseases and conditions can develop during your child’s early years, threatening their vision.

 

Children's Eye Exams

Many eye diseases can develop for years without showing symptoms. Early detection is important as these conditions can damage your vision permanently if they progress far enough. Book an eye exam today to help diagnose and manage any early eye disease you or your family may have.

Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management

Myopia or nearsightedness is one of the most common refractive errors around the globe. It can develop early in childhood and progress into adulthood, which can lead to sight threatening eye diseases. If your child suffers from myopia, we have solutions to control the progression and preserve their vision and eye health for the future.
