What is Included in a Routine Eye Exam?

During a routine eye exam, Dr. Edgerly will determine your best corrected visual acuity and ocular functionality. This exam ascertains how well you can see and whether or not your eyes are working the way they should. If you already have glasses or contacts, he will determine whether you need a different prescription based on your needs and expectations.  We use modern eye care technology to inspect your eyes inside and out directly. This allows the doctor to evaluate the health of your eyes properly.

What are some signs you need to Get Your Eyes Checked?

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it would be a good idea to schedule an eye exam:

  • Blurry vision
  • Fluctuating vision
  • Eye strain or tired eyes
  • Dryness
  • Itching
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Systemic health conditions affecting your eyes

What Do We Look for During an Eye Exam?

Dr. Edgerly looks for the proper functionality of your ocular system. Working together, your eyes are the beginning of a complex system. There are many working parts in the ocular system enabling your eyes to communicate with your brain, thus allowing you to see the environment around you. We want to make sure each part is working the way it should. During the eye exam, we screen for numerous eye diseases and conditions. Our eye exams are comprehensive, which means we do everything possible to ensure your eyes are healthy, working in tandem, and seeing clearly and accurately.

How Often Should You Get an Eye Exam?

The recommended frequency of your eye care checkups depends on age and health. If you are an asymptomatic, risk-free adult aged 18-60, you should get an eye exam every two years. Symptomatic adults and adults over 60 should get an eye exam once per year. Asymptomatic children can be seen as young as one year old, then around age three, and again at five before school. They should then continue annual exams throughout the school age.
