What To Expect During an Eye Exam

What To Expect During an Eye Exam

You want to protect your vision because great vision is important to your quality of life. One of the most important ways you can protect your vision is to have an eye examination at least once each year. Dr. Lan O’Donnell at O’Donnell Eye Institute in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, provides comprehensive vision services, including eye exams, to help preserve your vision.

How Eye Examinations Can Help You

Yearly eye examinations are vital to detect vision issues and eye conditions early before they become more serious. You may need more frequent eye examinations if you suffer from medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure, which can make vision worse.

These are some of the common eye conditions which can be detected during an eye exam:

  • Pink eye
  • Cataracts
  • Eye allergies
  • Glaucoma
  • Lazy eye
  • A foreign body in your eye
  • Macular degeneration
  • Corneal ulcers

When you visit your eye doctor, you can expect a thorough examination of your eyes, and tests to evaluate and measure your:

  • Peripheral vision
  • Depth perception
  • Eye muscle balance
  • Ability to distinguish color
  • Focus and tracking ability

Your eye doctor will also check:

  • Eye pressure to diagnose glaucoma
  • Hypertension symptoms in your eyes
  • Eye structures using bio-microscopic evaluation

After your eye exam, your eye doctor will determine if your vision needs to be corrected and will recommend contact lenses, glasses, or other vision correction treatment. An eye exam is also an excellent opportunity for you to ask questions about the health of your eyes and how you can protect your vision. Your eye doctor is an expert at preserving your vision throughout your life.
