Comprehensive Eye Exams
When To Have An Eye Exam
It's recommended that you receive an eye exam every two years before age 50, and once a year every year after. If you have been diagnosed with health problems that affect sight, such as diabetes, it's strongly recommended that you receive an eye exam once a year no matter your age.
Advanced Diagnostic TechnologyAt the Center for Total Eye Care, you will receive one of the most comprehensive eye exams possible using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. This allows us to detect signs of diseases or abnormalities early on while they’re still easy to treat.
In addition to assessing nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and other vision abnormalities, Drs. Barber, Friedman, Jun, and Luzuriaga perform a thorough evaluation for sight-threatening problems like glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, to name a few. Some of the innovative exams performed include digital retinal photography, computerized visual field exam, corneal topography, pachymetry, and optical coherence tomography.
Your Eye Exam
Once your eye exam is complete, your doctor will take the time to go over the results with you. Everything will be explained to you clearly so you have a complete understanding of your current eye health and vision needs.
Note: Eye exams for contact lenses include special tests that typically are not performed in routine eye exams for glasses. So if you are interested in contacts or you already wear them and want to have your prescription updated, make sure you say so when you schedule your appointment.
