Comprehensive Eye Exams Dallas
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, many sight-threatening diseases, if detected early, can be cured or treated to prevent, or slow, the progression of any vision loss. The most important preventive step is receiving routine examinations by a qualified eye care professional.
Yearly eye exams are an important part of eye health. Eye problems are often silent and if it’s been more than a year since you’ve had an eye exam, it’s time to come see us. An annual eye exam could help prevent you from losing your sight.
On your first visit and periodically thereafter, the doctors at LaserCare Eye Center will perform a comprehensive eye exam. This includes refraction (determination of the need for glasses (if needed)), focused exam of the tissues surrounding the eye, examination of the anterior segment (front part of the eye) and dilated fundus examination (we will dilate your pupils with special eyedrops to examine the retina and other tissues in the back of the eye). This is a very detailed exam of your eye and can take as long as 2 hours.
Depending on you general and ocular health, you and your doctor will be able to determine an appropriate schedule for comprehensive eye exams. We strongly recommend that all patients have regular comprehensive exams.
