Many systemic diseases can affect the health of the eyes and so you would need a complete thorough eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy. Often times certain medical conditions are detected by the way of retinal changes. There are also certain eye conditions such as glaucoma that can only be detected by an eye exam because they have no symptoms.
Everyone should have their eyes examined at least once every two years. However, if you wear glasses or contact lenses, your prescription is only valid for a year. You should have an annual eye exam to make sure that your prescription still meets your needs.
Some of the signs that you need an eye exam and an updated prescription include:
Dr. Rezvani provides customized advice on how often you should have your eyes checked. For example, your vision impairment may change dramatically when you’re younger, and you may need more frequent eye exams.
When you check in at idoc Optical, Dr. Rezvani performs a series of tests to evaluate your vision and the health of your eyes. Some of the tests you can expect include:
Routine eye exams at idoc Optical also help Dr. Rezvani diagnose any health problems early on so you can start treatment before an eye disease progresses and damages your vision.
Even if you don’t have a vision impairment such as myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness), you should still have your eyes checked regularly. In addition to testing your vision, Dr. Rezvani monitors your eye health and looks for signs of eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, ocular retinopathy, or macular degeneration. As with many other health conditions, you may not experience any noticeable symptoms until your vision is irreparably damaged.
