Comprehensive Eye Exams for You and Your Family!
When individuals visit our eye doctor for comprehensive eye exams, a professional evaluates the current health of your eyes and tests for potential problems that develop over time. At our Sikeston and Poplar Bluff locations, our eye doctors use a vision test to evaluate the changes to your current vision.
We also check the amount of pressure in your eyes to identify potential risks for glaucoma and an optometrist at one of our locations checks for cataracts or other health concerns as part of the comprehensive exam. Depending on the situation, our eye doctors also ask questions about the changes to personal health and vision to identify further concerns or problems.
What to Expect at Our Sikeston and Poplar Bluff Eye Care Centers
During a visit to a vision center for eye and vision exams in Sikeston and Poplar Bluff, our optometrist evaluates the health of your eyes with different tools. Generally, adults can expect a few simple questions before the exam to evaluate any changes or noticeable problems. For example, we may ask if individuals have specific health conditions with an impact on vision or if individuals notice any chances to their vision since the last exam.
The basic eye exam uses a letter chart to evaluate current vision. We use different tools to check the vision of each eye and evaluate any changes to vision that require correction. A small puff of air into the eyes checks for pressure and glaucoma risks. Our doctor also looks into the eyes to check for cataracts or other visual cues to health concerns.
Improving Personal Eye Health
Regular eye and vision exams ensure that individuals have the tools to catch potential problems before it damages the eyes and requires more complex treatment strategies. During an exam, our doctors check for common eye health concerns and changes to current vision. If necessary, we recommend glasses or contact lenses to help correct vision and limit the changes that occur later.
Generally, we recommend an annual visit for a comprehensive eye exam. We suggest more regular visits if we notice any problems with the eyes, during pregnancy or after any major changes to current physical health and well-being.
Your eyes play an important role in the way you experience the world. You want to keep your eyes healthy by obtaining regular check-ups and going through appropriate eye exams.
