If you value your vision, you want to do whatever you can to protect it. The first and most important step in that journey is receiving regular eye exams, which you and your loved ones can get right here at Today’s Vision in Conroe, TX. Before visiting us, learn more about these exams below:
The Importance of Eye Exams
Our optometrist, Dr. Breaux, stresses the importance of regular and comprehensive eye exams throughout all stages of life, from early childhood through the senior years. Small children receive three major exams by the time they enter school, while school-aged kids and adults should receive at least one eye exam every other year. Seniors should schedule annual eye exams without fail.
Why are these exams so critical, especially if you and your family members seem to be seeing all right? Some of the most devastating eye diseases, including cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma can all do progressive, permanent damage to the eyes for many years without alerting you to their presence. You can't protect your long-term eyesight against these diseases unless you know that they're there, and the only way to know for sure is by undergoing regular exams. Even a relatively benign issue such as farsightedness or nearsightedness could be affecting your vision more severely than you realize.
Eye and Vision Evaluations at Our Optometry Center
Our optometry center's eye and vision exams are easy, painless, and immensely valuable for every member of your family. Our optometrist will ask you about your current eyesight and answer any concerns you may have. Then we will perform a series of tests, such as a refraction test, retinal examination, and color vision test.. Pressure testing helps us detect possible glaucoma, while examination of the front of the eye can alert us to cataracts. Inspection of the interior of the eye lets us check your retinas, optic nerves, and blood vessels for abnormalities.
Eye function testing is another important aspect of our exams. We can evaluate abilities such as color contrast and depth perception, as well as eye teaming, tracking, alignment, focus, and accommodation. Visual acuity testing tells how clearly you're seeing at various distance levels and helps us formulate corrective vision prescriptions as needed.
