Eye Exam

Comprehensive Eye Exam

Our eye exam in Atlanta goes beyond the routine eye exam to evaluate many important visual skills, such as:

  • Visual Acuity at Distance and Near - Is vision clear and single at far and close distances? Clear sight at short distances is critical to reading, writing, close work, computer use, etc.
  • Eye Health - Complete assessment of the external and internal ocular structures of the eye to ensure proper health and function. We check for eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes as they pertain to the eye.
  • Glasses and Contact lens prescriptions - Each exam will include a glasses prescription and a contact lens prescription as requested.
  • Functional Vision Skills Screenings - Screening for eye teaming and tracking skills, as well as focusing skills.

 

Vision Exams for Children

The American Optometric Association recommends that pre-school children receive a complete vision exam at the ages of six months, three years and five years. It is particularly important that a child have a complete evaluation in the summer prior to entry into Kindergarten. While in school, yearly evaluations are recommended.

Vision Exams in Atlanta for Adults

The American Optometric Association recommends a yearly eye exam for adults — not only to detect and to diagnose vision changes or problems — but, also to maintain eye health. For example, glaucoma, a disease caused by increased pressure in the eye, commonly goes unnoticed by adults. Regular vision examinations are also important for the prevention of vision problems created or aggravated by today’s academic and professional demands.

21st century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before. Adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and at home. Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can sometimes induce headaches and/or visual difficulties which can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or Vision Therapy.
