At iCare & Eyewear we stress EYE care so you should know why is it important to have an eye exam.
- A child may have rapid vision changes due to growth spurts.
- Parents and teachers may not recognize exactly what a child sees and the child may not be able to communicate vision problems.
- Academic and athletic abilities may be compromised by sub-standard vision.
- A child does not have the means to know what correct eyesight is and may learn to compensate for his/her difficulties causing long-term vision problems.
- For early detection of ocular diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.
- Changes in vision without a change in prescription can lead to eye fatigue, headaches and eyestrain.
- During the ages of 40 to 55 years, eyes experience more prescription changes than ever, specifically your near vision.
- Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S. and physical illness may lead to vision loss.
What happens during an eye exam?
During a comprehensive eye exam with refraction, we measure your visual acuity; determine your eye-glass prescription near and at a distance; evaluate your eye muscle coordination; assess the front of the eye with a microscope; perform 3 tests for glaucoma; and dilate your eyes to properly evaluate the retina.
However, we have invested in new technology so that you may not need to have your eyes dilated!
