Comprehensive Eye ExamsComing into First Eye Care McKinney for a comprehensive eye exam is one of the best ways you can maintain your vision health. These exams are also an excellent opportunity to address any problems before they get worse and ask our optometrists any questions you may have. Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of preventative health care, namely because many eye diseases and disorders can be detected in the early stages. Even if you think your vision is perfect and you are without problems, a comprehensive eye exam performed by one of our trained eye doctors may say otherwise. Many eye problems have no symptoms until the condition has gotten much worse, which is why it is so important to come into our McKinney eye care center at least once a year. An eye exam can tell a lot about your overall health and wellness. Many diseases, including cardiovascular problems and diabetes, actually show early signs in the eyes.
What Does a Comprehensive Eye Exam Include?
At First Eye Care McKinney, our team of experienced and compassionate optometrists understand that each patient is unique. This is why we are dedicated to offering customized comprehensive eye exams to everyone. We recommend coming into our vision clinic at least once a year to ensure your eyes remain and in good health and no problems need to be addressed. Our comprehensive eye exams usually take about an hour and will include a full evaluation of the eyes. We use this opportunity to look for any systemic health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure, in addition to analyzing the health of your eyes. At our McKinney location, the eye exam will include the following:
- Testing and measurements of your eye
- Evaluation of the lens, retina, and posterior section of the eye
- Measure of pressure within the eye (this test is used to detect early signs of glaucoma)
- Visual Acuity to assess the sharpness of your vision
- Visual fields test
- Cover Test (which is used to identify binocular problems or strabismus)
- Binocular vision assessment
- Assessment of the health of both eyes, inside and out
- Screening for glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other common eye conditions
Some of the most common diseases we look for during our comprehensive eye exam include:
