What to Expect During Your Eye Exam
We’ll ask you to fill out our forms regarding your medical and ocular history, current medication, and other basic information before your visit. Be sure to bring identification and any insurance information with you as well.
We’ll test your vision in a number of ways. We want to determine how well you see far away, up close, and side to side. We’ll see how well your eyes work independently and as part of a team. We’ll also check your peripheral vision and depth of focus.
Many of the conditions that affect senior eyes are not exclusive to older individuals. However, those over 60 have a higher incidence of these conditions. Diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration are all more prevalent as we mature. We’ll screen for these diseases, and other tests will be suggested as needed.
