A thorough and proper eye exam consists of a variety of standard tests designed to measure visual acuity and other vision faculties. Additionally, your Las Plazas eye doctor will observe the health of the eye and check for common eye diseases during this pain-free and hour-long examination. Much like any disease or infection, it is best to catch, diagnose and treat eye conditions early on to preserve good vision.
This is especially important for children as strabismus and amblyopia (crossed eye and lazy eye) can often be diagnosed and treated in early childhood in an effort to avoid life-long vision impairment. Also, rare eye conditions from birth, such as congenital cataracts can be diagnosed and treated. For the first three years, children should have their vision checked as a part of their regular doctor checkups. Monitoring the development of your child’s vision will assist in their learning and development of hand-eye coordination, balance, and fine motor skills.
As an adult, you should receive at least one eye exam every two years. As you age and your likelihood of developing an eye disease increases, you should schedule eye exams on a more frequent basis. If your family has a history of eye diseases, you should schedule a regular yearly exam as precaution.
