Find What You Need

 

At Kennedy Eyecare you will find a caring team of professionals dedicated to providing high quality personalized eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrists are able to provide treatment options and in many cases, restore vision or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends an eye health and vision exam every 6-12 months, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, your doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. The doctors will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists provides regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam.  Our doctors measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, our doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable our doctors to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our doctors examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination, tonometry, and the latest high tech equipment available anywhere. Our doctors evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnifying microscope. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, our doctors will review the results and discuss any necessary treatment options with you. Contact your preferred Kennedy Eyecare location today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
