Adult vision care begins with a comprehensive eye exam. Comprehensive eye examinations are very important not only to determine if you need correction to see well, but also to maintain the health of your eye.
While some eye diseases have obvious symptoms such as red eyes, light sensitivity, or flashing lights, many serious, vision-threatening problems have no warning signs. Glaucoma, for example, will present no symptoms until actual vision loss occurs. Proper eye care and evaluations can help prevent vision loss. Comprehensive eye exams can also detect diabetes, hypertension, retinal holes or tears, and other important treatable medical conditions.
A comprehensive eye examination at Shapiro Eye Care involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. Each test is necessary and allows Dr. Shapiro to evaluate a different aspect of your vision. Common tests that you might have include:
When you call to make an eye appointment, be prepared to describe any current vision problems. In addition, ask if the eye examination will affect your vision temporarily and if you will need someone to drive you home. You may also want to ask about the cost of the exam, if your insurance plan will cover any of the cost, and how payment is handled.
Gather the following information to prepare for the examination:
If your eye exam shows that your vision is good and your eyes are in good health, all you need to do is make your appointment for next year’s eye exam, go home and continue taking good care of your eyes.
If the exam reveals focusing problems, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia, Dr. Shapiro will prescribe glasses or contact lenses. If you are interested in refractive surgery, and if you are a good candidate, Dr. Shapiro will talk to you about blade-free LASIK. | Learn More
Glaucoma is a very serious problem that can lead to blindness if it is not treated properly. If Dr. Shapiro finds that you have glaucoma, he will prescribe a plan of glaucoma management to protect you against loss of vision. You will need to follow his instructions, use your medication as directed, and have regular checkups to monitor the pressure in your eyes. With proper management, if glaucoma is detected early, it need not cause any loss of vision. | Learn More
Eye exams on older patients often reveal developing cataracts. If Dr. Shapiro finds cataracts when he examines the interior of your eyes, he will discuss treatment options with you. Cataract surgery does not necessarily have to be done as soon as cataracts are first detected, but there is no benefit in delaying the procedure. Dr. Shapiro offers a range of choices for your lens implants, including standard lenses, toric lenses for astigmatism, and multifocal premium lenses that allow you to see clearly close up, far away, and everywhere in between. | Learn More
Macular degeneration is a retinal problem that occurs as we age. If Dr. Shapiro finds that you have signs of macular degeneration, he will refer you to a retina specialist.
If you have itchy or sensitive eyes, you may have Dry Eye Syndrome, a chronic problem in which the outer layer of your eyes does not get proper lubrication because of insufficient or poor-quality tear production. Shapiro Eye Care’s Dry Eye Clinic can help determine whether your symptoms are cause by Dry Eye Syndrome and identify appropriate treatment options. | Learn More
