Comprehensive Eye Exam

Comprehensive Eye Exams 

Eye care is an important part of your overall health and requires routine checkups just like the rest of your body. Unfortunately, many people neglect their eyes, but doing so, could be detrimental. The sooner you discover a potential issue, the better off your eyes will likely be. To help you catch a problem before you need emergency eye care as well as to help you find the right prescription, we offer comprehensive eye examinations in Glenside and Spring House.


Why A Comprehensive Eye Exam is Necessary

A comprehensive eye exam includes both vision screening tests to identify sight problems as well as other eye tests that could help you discover a disease or other issue. These eye exams may even help you diagnose a problem in its earlier stages and allow you to slow down its negative impact or prevent more damage from occurring altogether.  For these reasons, routine eye exams are recommended for everyone regardless of whether or not they have a history of eye problems.

Some of the issues our eye exams may help discover or diagnose include:

  • Vision problems like astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness
  • Lazy eye
  • Crossed eyes
  • Eye alignment issues
  • Tunnel vision
  • Glaucoma
  • Dry eye
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Other eye diseases or problems

A full eye exam may also help you detect problems indirectly related to eye health such as high blood pressure or cholesterol. When you have a diagnosis, you and your doctor can work together to develop a treatment or management plan if necessary so you can lead a healthier life.


What To Expect with Our Comprehensive Eye Exams

Our eye exams in Spring House and Glenside include a series of different vision and eye exam tests to help us better understand your eye health as a whole as well as any necessary care.

Our comprehensive eye exams will test for:

  • Basic vision problems

At the end of your eye exam, your optometrist should be able to diagnose any issues and start developing a treatment or management plan if necessary to best meet your needs.
