Our Comprehensive Eye Exams in Sacramento
A comprehensive eye exam allows our Sacramento optometrists, Dr. Holberg and Dr. Patel and our vision care team, to examine both the outer and inner parts of the eye in great detail. In addition to diagnosing obvious complaints such as conjunctivitis or dry eyes, we can study the front surface of the eye to check for corneal scarring, cataracts or other problems that impair vision. By dilating your pupils with medicated eye drops, we can view large areas of the retina and optic nerve of the eye. This can help us detect the earliest stages of macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and other diseases. Many of these diseases cause irreversible damage, so it's imperative that we catch them as soon as possible so we can start treatment for slow their progress. Eye function testing helps our optometrists determine how well your eyes are focusing, converging and teaming (moving in unison).
Importance of Getting Your Eyes Checked
Vision testing is necessary to check for refractive disorders -- errors in the way your eyes are directing light to the retina. Common examples of refractive disorders include farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism and (beginning in middle age) presbyopia. By having you read lines of varying font size through an instrument known as a phoropter, we can judge the precise degree of refractive error in each eye, which enables us to write an accurate corrective lens prescription.
It's a good idea to schedule a comprehensive eye exam in Sacramento for your entire family every year. Vision and eye health can change so subtly from year to year that only professional evaluation can alert you to the changes. You may require more frequent exams if you develop specific eye disorders that require extra monitoring and treatment, especially after your enter your senior years.
