What is a comprehensive eye exam?
At Professional Optometry, we use top technology to help test your vision and ocular health. Many different testing procedures are used to inspect your eyes in either our Professional Optometry Fayetteville clinic, or St. Paul’s Vision Center offices. For visual screening, you may be asked to first read from a basic letter and number chart held at various distances from your eyes.
After eye drops to dilate your pupil are applied, Dr. Lieberman will then look at your retina and inner eye tissues with a high-powered lens. This provides a clear image of your overall eye health. Depending upon the need and our optometrist’s professional judgment, eye health may also be conducted using a variety of top technologies.
When should you come in for an eye exam?
Your Child's Eye Exam
Children should have their eyes examined comprehensively at 6 months of age. This enables us to confirm normal development of the visual system. Following this initial consultation, the next eye exam should be scheduled for 3 years old. When your child enters school, it is critical to have a complete evaluation done. If everything checks out fine and no visual conditions are diagnosed, then appointments can be made annually for school-aged children. However, if any visual problems or warning signs are detected, more frequent follow-up exams may be necessary.
Certain risk factors indicate that children should come in for an exam with Dr. Lieberman & Dr. Lieberman more regularly. An increased risk of vision conditions is associated with:
- Developmental delays
- Crossed eyes or turned eyes
- Pre-term birth
- History of eye injury or family history of eye disease
- Physical diseases or illness
Adults are advised to have an annual eye exam if vision correction is needed. If no eyeglasses or contact lenses are necessary, then until age 40 an eye health and vision evaluation can be done every two to three years. After 40, more frequent exams are recommended, since the risk of many common eye diseases increases.
We will assess your eyes and vision for conditions such as macular degeneration and presbyopia. When other health conditions are present, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, then the AOA recommends more frequent optometric examinations. If you are older than 60 years, eye exams may be needed even more often. Please consult Dr. Lieberman about how frequently to come into our Fayetteville or St. Paul’s clinic for a complete eye assessment.
Why Do You Need A Routine Eye Exam If You Feel And See Well?
Many eye diseases become more common as your age advances. If these problems are diagnosed at a very early stage, the chances of successful treatment are much greater. When you allow Dr. Nathan Lieberman or Dr. Ann Lieberman to check your eyes, you are promoting the long-term health of your vision. Treatment for any diseases can begin as soon as possible and vision loss can hopefully be minimized or prevented.
With children, cognitive development and learning are strongly associated with the ability to see. Experts estimate that 80% of education is presented visually. So if your child’s vision problem remains undetected, learning will suffer.
Complete pediatric eye exams will diagnose typical conditions, such as nearsightedness, astigmatism, farsightedness and weak eye coordination or pairing. (Note that children do not always detect the symptoms of poor eyesight on their own.)
These problems are generally resolved smoothly with vision correction. Routine eye evaluations thereby prevent many classroom learning difficulties.
