Eye Exam in 33618
Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? If not, you should make an appointment at Optical Outlets to get an 33618 eye exam which will not only test your visual acuity, but screen your eyes for over 30 different eye diseases and disorders.
During our 33618 eye exam, patients will first have their visual acuity tested. If it is determined that you have a refractive error such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, our optometrist will be able to write an eyeglass or contact lens prescription. Today, even patients with astigmatism or dry eye can safely and effectively have their vision corrected with contact lenses. Our eye doctor will also screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. Among the many eye diseases which our doctor will screen for include: glaucoma; macular degeneration; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina.
There are many eye diseases which show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. This means that there are many people walking around who are not even aware that they have serious eye diseases such as glaucoma or macular degeneration. This is why it is so important that patients come in on a yearly basis to have their eyes examined. Many eye diseases can be easily found during a comprehensive eye exam at our office; if this occurs, our optometrist will either be able to provide treatment for the disease or refer you to a specialist in the area who can provide you with the advanced eye care that you need. If you are having a contact lens exam and fitting, our eye doctor will also take measurements of your eye which include measurements of the curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris. It is important that contact lenses picture eyes precisely in order to avoid damage to the cornea.
