Eye exams are a routine part of eye health, but you may not be aware of why they’re so important. Many eye diseases and conditions are silent — meaning you don’t know you have any symptoms until your vision is severely compromised.
Vision deterioration, even if it’s minor, can affect your ability to drive, read, or perform normal activities.
If you don’t have any vision problems, you may not need an eye exam as frequently as a person who wears glasses or corrective lenses.
However, all men, women, and children should have regular eye exams, especially if you have a family history of eye conditions or a health problem that may affect your eyes.
During your exam, Dr. Toyzer first discusses any issues or concerns you might be having with your eyes. You also discuss your physical health in general and your family history of diseases or conditions that might affect your eyes.
Depending on your needs, your health history, and your age, your exam may include tests that measure:
During your exam, Dr. Toyzer might also dilate your pupils or perform other tests.
Your eye exam at The Eye Doctors is comfortable, pain-free, and thorough.
You may need some follow-up services after an initial exam. For example, if your vision has changed, Dr. Toyzer writes you a new prescription and help you get fitted for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
If your eyes are dilated, you need someone to drive you home, or you may need to wear dark sunglasses for a few hours to protect your eyes from bright sunlight.
If Dr. Toyzer discovers you need to see a specialist or have an eye procedure, he’ll connect you with the appropriate providers or services.
Most people feel completely normal after an eye exam, and you return to your regular activities right away.
