First of all, welcome and congrats for taking an interest in proper eye care. What’s an eye exam? It involves a series of tests done by an optometrist at our facility to check your eyes.
Eye exams are not only for the old. It’s advisable for everyone to take regular eye exams due to the associated benefits.
What to Expect During an Eye Exam
An optometrist or an ophthalmologist will use a wide array of tests and procedures to examine your eyes. The criteria vary in intensity from the basic one that involves reading an eye chart to the complex one that entails the use of high-powered lenses to check the tiny structures inside your eyes carefully.
Expect a comprehensive eye exam to last an hour or more depending on the complexity of the tests required to determine your optimal health.

Why Do I Need to Book an Eye Exam?
A concern most people seem to have is whether they’ll still need an eye exam if they’ve passed a vision screening at work or school. An eye exam is essential nonetheless.
If you have an exam, it can help discover other eye-related conditions that cause blurred vision such as glaucoma and diabetes early enough. Your doctor can also establish other underlying medical conditions whose symptoms show in the eye.
You should book an eye exam if you want to maintain a good vision and healthy eyes. That’s for those struggling with poor near or distance vision.
Age is another good reason to book that eye exam appointment. While anybody can have eye problems, if you’re over 60 years, you need regular eye exams.
