Many people might not think twice about their eye health, especially if they don't suffer from any ailments that can impact their vision. However, it's important to visit an optometrist and get help with eye exams, even if you don't have any pre-existing vision disorders. By visiting an eye doctor, you can rest assured you'll be able to get the help you need to see clearly, as well as help improve your eyesight with contact lenses or eyeglasses.
At Lake Norman Eye Care serving Mooresville, NC, we make it our mission to help our clients see clearly, find solutions for their vision disorders, and manage eye diseases. To do so, we use vision exams that provide a window into the eyes and are part of our routine eye care. Our comprehensive eye exam can help patients understand the status of their eye health, and help our optometrist understand what treatment, if any, can help someone restore their vision. Our eye doctor is here to provide vision exams, eye exams, routine eye care, and can even provide a retinal scan or a comprehensive eye exam for your health.
Do I Need to See an Optometrist?
Visiting an optometrist can be important for people of all ages, including children, teenagers, adults, and especially older adults. An eye exam is the first line of defense when it comes to your eye health. Vision exams, such as a retinal scan, can help alert an optometrist to potentially dangerous changes in the eye, such as the formation of eye diseases that can lead to total vision loss.
You should have an eye exam done once in a few years if you're an adult with no vision problems. However, for people with vision disorders, eye diseases, and people that notice changes in the vision, it's important to contact an eye doctor right away to get a quick checkup.
What Happens During Vision Exams?
During vision exams, our optometrist on our optometry team can help dilate the eye in order to get a better look at its inner workings. Our optometrist can also conduct vision tests, which give them a good idea on the status of your eye health and let them know if you need further treatment, such as eye drops, medication, eyeglasses, or contact lenses.
Eye exams can also help them diagnose and treat eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma, and more.
