Vision Exams

Vision exams are essential for your eye health. Many serious eye conditions don't have symptoms in the early stages when they are most treatable. At Richardson Eye Associates in Richardson, TX, we offer comprehensive eye exams so you can see clearly.

Why Get an Eye Exam? 

You know you need regular eye exams, but have you ever considered why? Getting an eye exam helps you protect your vision and eye health. It's the only way to learn if you have a condition affecting your vision. 

It's also the first step to correcting any vision problems. In fact, your vision can get worse without you noticing because it happens slowly over time. 

Two Types of Eye Exams

There are two basic types of eye exams. The first is a routine vision exam. Most adults need this type of exam once a year, but your optometrist may recommend you come in more often in certain situations. 

The second type of eye exam occurs when you have a problem with your eyes or vision. You may be experiencing blurry vision, having trouble with near or far vision, or being concerned about your eye health. It's important not to wait if you have any concerns about your vision. 

What To Expect During an Eye Exam

No matter the reason for your visit, there are a few things you can expect when you visit your optometrist for an eye exam. 

Vision and Refraction 

This is probably what comes to mind when you consider getting an eye exam. Your optometrist will have you read an eye chart and perform other tests to check your vision. 

They will also test your color perception and depth perception. 

Eye Function and Health

Your optometrist will also test your eye function and your eye health. They will check your eye movement and pupil function. 

They will also do a slit lamp exam. This is basically a microscope for your eyes. Your optometrist will look through the instrument and get a very clear look at your eyes. This allows them to see issues like cataracts or corneal abnormalities. 

Corrective Lens Exams 

If you need corrective lenses, you'll do a refraction test. You'll view words or numbers through different lenses, and see which is clearer for you. 

If you want to wear contacts, your eye doctor will measure your pupils, iris, and the shape of your cornea to help fit you for contact lenses.
