No matter your age or physical condition, a thorough vision test should be done each year to keep your prescriptions current. The vision test done by our Tamarac optometrist is simple, and usually consists of having you read an eye chart with different-sized letters. This is also called a vision “acuity” test. The vision test helps our optometrist figure out if you need glasses or contacts to improve your vision. In addition to a vision test, a yearly eye exam is also necessary to check for early signs of eye disease, or other conditions, that could affect your eyesight. Regular eye exam testing is also necessary as a part of your children’s eye care, since clear vision is closely linked to their learning process. Any undetected vision problems can easily affect schoolwork, so we suggest you keep an eye on your child to make sure they are their schoolwork stays up to par regularly.
Several tests to evaluate your eyes will be done, from the simple ones, to more involved tests, such as using a high-powered lens to see the tiny structures inside your eyes. During your eye exam and vision test, your eyes will also be evaluated to determine how they are working together, which is a good gauge of your general health. This all-inclusive eye exam can take an hour or more, depending on how involved the tests are to totally measure your vision and complete health of your eyes. Many people are not aware that optometrists are often the first health care professionals to detect chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes. These are some of the other conditions our Tamarac optometrist will be at 2020 Vision Place, as well as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. After going over all your results, we will discuss the findings, as well as recommend appropriate treatments options best suited to your needs.
