Regardless of age or physical condition, adults should have a vision test annually to keep their prescriptions current. The vision test by Dr. Ken Yeager, at our Greenville optometry office, is simple, and usually consists of having you read an eye chart with different-sized letters. This is also called an “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 an annual eye exam is also necessary to check for early signs of eye disease, or other conditions, that might affect your eyesight. Regular eye exam testing is also necessary for children, since clear vision is closely linked to their learning process. Any undetected vision problems will often affect schoolwork, so we suggest you keep an eye on your child to make sure their schoolwork is up to par on a regular basis.
During your vision test and eye exam, your eyes will also be assessed to determine how they work together as a team, which will be a good gauge of your overall health. 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. This all-inclusive eye exam can take an hour or more depending on how involved the tests are to completely measure your vision and total 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 experts will be checking for at our Greenville optometry office, as well as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. After going over all your results, we will discuss the findings and offer appropriate treatments options best suited to you and your needs.
