During your comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Levine examines your eyes to look for common vision problems as well as signs of eye diseases. This starts with dilation, through drops in your eyes, and the whole process is painless.
Be prepared to discuss your overall health and any vision changes. Bring any prescription glasses or contacts to your appointment, as those are checked as well. Each exam takes roughly 45-90 minutes. Routine eye exams can help protect your vision and keep your eyes as healthy as possible throughout your life.
The most common conditions diagnosed stem from refractive errors that cause blurry vision, including:
Glaucoma tests are part of comprehensive eye exams. Using tonometry, a test that detects the condition by assessing eye pressure, Dr. Levine may direct a brief puff of air into your eyes or apply a pressure-sensitive tip against or near each eye. If the test shows higher-than-normal pressure, you may have glaucoma and may need additional testing.
Your comprehensive eye exam includes two primary vision tests. The visual field test measures your peripheral vision and allows Dr. Levine to determine if you’ve lost vision. This is another sign of glaucoma, but may also simply indicate the need for glasses, contacts, or an increased prescription for your current vision aids. The visual acuity test measures how well you can see at various distances.
You should aim to see Dr. Levine for a comprehensive eye exam every one to three years depending on your age, risk for disease, and overall physical health. Kids should have routine eye exams to ensure normal vision development and to prevent any problems seeing or learning in school. Older adults tend to hold higher risks for eye conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
No matter what your health or age, regular eye exams can help detect any issues that arise early.
