Unmatched Comprehensive Eye Exams in Coral Springs
At Eyesite Vision Center, we know that going for regular eye exams is crucial to maintaining healthy eyes and clear vision. Our comprehensive eye exams go beyond simple vision tests, allowing our optometrist to evaluate your overall eye health and detect any potential issues early on. During the exam, we assess your visual acuity, screen for eye diseases, and perform additional tests to evaluate your eye health thoroughly.
Our team utilizes advanced technology and equipment, including Optomap, a scan of the back of the eye that provides a detailed digital image for future comparisons and accurate diagnoses. This allows us to monitor any changes and ensure your eyes remain in optimal condition.
Eye Care for Everyone
The AOA recommends an annual eye exam for any patient who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don't normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every year. Doctors often recommend more frequent eye examinations or dilated eye exams for people with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health. Having regular diabetic eye exams is crucial for any patient who's been diagnosed with or is at risk of developing Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
Since the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, everyone over the age of 60 should be examined annually.
If you are over 40, it’s a good idea to have your eyes examined every one to two years to check for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts and macular degeneration. We use cutting-edge technology for the most accurate and efficient diagnosis possible.
Eye Exams for Children
Some experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), all children should have their eyes examined at 6 months of age, at age 3 and again at the start of school. Children without vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should then continue to have their eyes examined at every year throughout school.
Children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently. Common risk factors for vision problems include:
- premature birth
- developmental delays
- turned or crossed eyes
- family history of eye disease
- history of eye injury
- other physical illness or disease
The AOA recommends that children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months or according to their optometrist’s instructions.
Contact Lens Eye Exam
If you wear contact lenses or are interested in wearing them, visit us for a contact lens exam. During a contact lens exam, your optometrist will determine your exact lens prescription and take certain measurements of the surface of your eye. With the results of these tests, we'll be able to provide you with the best-fitting contact lenses for your eyes and lifestyle. During your contact lens exam, your eye doctor will instruct you on proper wear and care instructions and show you how to insert and remove your lenses comfortably.
