Well Vision Exams
Routine well-vision exams are critical to vision and eye health. A well-vision exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your eyes and vision health that can identify eye diseases in their early stages when they're most treatable.
Premier Well-Vision Exams in Dakota Dunes and Sioux City
We use advanced technology to measure your sight, near and far, as well as peripheral vision and depth of field. Our doctors use well-vision exams to evaluate your overall eye health. During these exams, our doctors may dilate your eyes to look for signs of eye disease or other conditions that could impair vision or health over time.
We recommend patients undergo a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. With annual exams, we'll be able to stay on top of your eye health easily, and any changes won’t go long without detection. As you age, regular visits and comprehensive eye exams will become even more critical. We recommend more frequent visits if you have vision or eye health problems. The same goes if you regularly wear contact lenses. More frequent exams can help ensure your corneas remain healthy. Dunes Eye Consultants recommends children have their first comprehensive eye exam by the time they're six months old. This will help identify potential problems that occur soon after birth.
The Importance of Well-Vision Exams
Why Is It Important to Get Your Eyes Tested?
It is imperative to get your eyes checked annually to maintain the health of your eyes and vision. Eye vision exams can help catch any eye problem before it progresses, giving you the best chance to correct any issue. Your best defense against eye diseases and other conditions that can deteriorate your eyes over time is to get these exams done regularly. Many eye diseases present few detectable symptoms, affirming the importance of a professional regularly examining your eyes.
Vision Screenings Vs. Eye Exams
Many people assume that a vision screening is the same as a comprehensive eye exam, but this is false. Although a vision screening can be described as a basic eye test to detect vision-related issues, it does not check for underlying conditions like eye diseases. It primarily serves as an indicator for determining if a patient should undergo a comprehensive eye exam. On the other hand, a comprehensive eye exam, conducted by an eye doctor, thoroughly assesses all aspects of vision-related health.
What To Expect From a Well-Vision Exam
Whether you’ve had a dozen well-vision exams or just scheduled your first, knowing what to expect is always good. While well-vision exams can vary depending on your age and unique needs, they will most likely include the following:
- Comprehensive Eye Health Assesment
- Visual Acuity Test
- Color Blindness Test
- Cover Test
- Eye Movement Test
- Glaucoma Test
- Slit-Lamp Exam
