The eye doctors at Clarkson Eyecare recommend comprehensive eye exams at least once every two years for adults over the age of 20. Doctors recommend scheduling an appointment if you experience sudden or rapid vision loss or other troubling vision problems. In addition, adults over the age of 65 or individuals with certain genetic risk factors are more likely to develop a wide variety of age-related eye diseases that can cause significant vision loss. For this reason, Clarkson Eyecare recommends that these patients have a comprehensive eye exam once a year.
Eye exams normally take about an hour and half. During this time, your doctor screens your vision for multiple issues.
At the beginning of an eye exam, your eye doctor will ask if you have been experiencing any vision problems. If you currently wear glasses or contact lenses, bring them with you so your doctor can make any changes to your current prescription.
During the eye exam, your eye doctor can perform a number of different tests such as a glaucoma test (this is a simple screening to measure inner eye pressure), a visual acuity test, and a refraction test.
Pupils can remain dilated for two or three hours. While this may be an inconvenience, dilating your eyes is a necessary part of a comprehensive eye exam to observe and diagnose eye diseases in their early stages.
Clarkson Eyecare recommends arranging transportation for yourself after your eye exam.
It normally takes about an hour and half for the doctors to screen your eyes.
Vision insurance often covers all or part of the cost of a comprehensive eye exam, depending on the policy of a patient’s health care provider.
