More Than Just Vision Correction

You likely visit your optometrist to get your vision prescription updated, buy new glasses, or refill your contact lenses. But did you know that your eye exam is so much more than just vision correction?

Routine eye exams are essential components of preventive health care. Why? Aside from being vital tools for detecting, diagnosing, and monitoring sight-threatening eye diseases, they are also crucial for spotting early signs of other health conditions like cancer, diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and more.

At Optometric Center & Eyewear Galleria, we’ve invested in state-of-the-art technology that allows us to detect the smallest signs of eye disease. In many cases, early detection and immediate treatment are the key to preventing permanent vision loss.

How Often Do You Need Eye Exams?

We follow the exam frequency schedule recommended by the American Optometric Association (AOA):

  • Adults 18 to 64 should have an eye exam at least every 2 years
  • Adults 65 and older should undergo annual eye exams

This exam frequency is recommended so we can get to know your eyes and eye care needs. Our tests establish a baseline for your ocular health so we can document changes in your vision, no matter how small they are. These changes alert us to potential problems that could affect your vision and require swift treatment.

What Do We Look for
During an Eye Exam?

Every eye exam begins with a conversation about you. By getting to know your history, we can monitor your eyes for possible signs of inherited diseases or illnesses. This conversation also gives us unique insight into your particular eye care needs, like your lifestyle or workplace needs. 

Your eyesight is always checked during an eye exam, and your prescription is updated so you can continue to enjoy crystal clear vision. While this test includes an eye chart, we also measure your corneal curvature. The cornea determines how the light entering your eyes bends (refracts) to reach the retina. We measure your cornea, record your vision, and recommend the best options available.

An eye exam also includes a test for binocular vision and an assessment of the strength of your eye muscles to ensure your eyes are working as a team. Eye teaming is essential for ensuring the 2 separate images your eyes see are successfully fused into one understandable image for your brain.

Most importantly, a comprehensive eye exam includes a series of tests that look for various eye diseases and other health conditions using our industry-leading ophthalmic technology.

 

The Aging Eye

Your eyes undergo various changes as you age. While some changes are more serious than others, if you’re over 65, annual eye exams ensure these changes are documented and monitored as you get older.

Some common eye conditions and diseases we look for in older eyes include:

  • Presbyopia: A refractive error that nearly everyone develops. Presbyopia occurs when the eye’s lens loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Leading-Edge Technology
Close to Home

The Optos optomap is an ultra-widefield (200°) retinal imager that takes high-definition images of your retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels. These images provide us with extremely detailed information of the vulnerable areas in your eyes. Using your retinal images, we can detect signs of:

Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is an innovative OCT scanner similar to an ultrasound but specific to the eyes. This non-invasive test captures high-definition cross-sections of your retina in less time than a traditional OCT and in stunning detail.

Using SD-OCT, we can detect early signs of:
