What is an eye exam?

An eye exam evaluates the structure and function of your eyes, looking for vision problems and eye conditions in need of treatment.

Eye exams are an important part of your overall health and wellness. Vision problems affect your quality of life, but with the right diagnosis and prescription, vision problems are easily corrected.

Advanced Eye Center is a one-stop-shop when it comes to eye care, managing vision, and medical and surgical eye needs.

When should I schedule an eye exam?

Advanced Eye Center provides eye exams for all people over the age of five. When you need an eye exam depends on your age and vision needs. If you wear prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, you should have an eye exam every year. You also need an eye exam when you have vision changes.

In general, adults without vision problems should get a comprehensive eye exam at least once in their 20s and once in their 30s. The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) recommends that all adults have a comprehensive eye exam when they reach age 40.

After your eye exam at 40, your provider at Advanced Eye Center determines the frequency of your future exams based on your eye health, vision needs, and risk of developing eye conditions.

What happens during an eye exam?

The team at Advanced Eye Center performs comprehensive evaluations when you come in for an eye exam. They perform several tests to check your vision and evaluate your eye. Testing might include:

  • Visual acuity test
  • Check of depth perception, color vision, and peripheral vision
  • Measurement of the curve of the cornea
  • Refractive error test (nearsightedness, farsightedness)
  • Check of eye movement and ability to focus
  • Evaluation of eye structure
  • Measurement of eye pressure

If your routine eye exam requires a more in-depth medical evaluation, the team at Advanced Eye Center provides the additional tests during your visit.

What happens after an eye exam?

After your eye exam at Advanced Eye Center, your provider discusses their findings with you. For vision correction, the team offers same-day prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Advanced Eye Center features an optical shop and a customer service team onsite to help you find eyeglass frames that fit your style and vision needs.

Regular eye exams keep you and your eyes healthy. Call Advanced Eye Center or schedule your eye exam online today.
