An annual comprehensive eye health and vision examination is your best insurance policy to maintain a lifetime of clear vision and healthy eyes. Let’s review what is involved in a typical annual comprehensive eye examination. During your comprehensive eye examination, your Azman Eye Care Specialists doctor will assess the health and function of your eyes and perform various tests of your vision. We recommend a yearly examination as a wise investment in the protection of your eyesight. As part of your examination, your visual acuity (the sharpness of your vision) will be measured and a test known as a refraction is conducted to determine your eyeglass prescription. Your examination will include a comprehensive evaluation of your eye health to detect diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, detached retina and optic nerve abnormalities. The ocular health evaluation is comprised of measurement of internal eye pressure as well as a thorough examination of the internal and external structures of the eye to detect the presence of eye disease. The doctor will also inspect the inner structures of your eyes, including the retina and optic nerve. You may be most familiar with dilating eye drops, which cause the iris to open wide, giving the doctor a good view of the internal structures of the eye. The effects of the dilating drops usually begin to subside after a few hours; however, it is wise to bring good sunglasses to help you see in bright sunlight following a dilated eye exam. While your eyes are dilated, close work or reading may be difficult, and bright sunlight may be annoying. After performing these tests your doctor will discuss your results, explain your prescription and give you a better understanding of your overall eye health. Options such as glasses, contact lenses, vision therapy, eye medications, or eye surgery will be presented. Your doctor will determine if you need to wear corrective lenses. To understand your need for corrective lenses, you need to understand how your eyes work.
