Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. The entire exam process can take an hour depending on the complexity of the problem. Each patient will be evaluated with a refraction to determine their glasses prescription, an evaluation of the anterior(troat) section of their eyes with biomicroscope, intraocular, measurements and a thorough evaluation of the retina(back of the eye).
