Comprehensive Eye Exam
While sometimes forgotten about, eye care is an important part of a person’s overall health. In order to ensure your eyes are properly taken care of, you should schedule routine eye exams to assess your eye health and learn more about your specific eye care needs.
These regular eye examinations can catch problems in their earliest stages and potentially keep them from getting worse or help you treat them all together. At Greene & Greene Optometry, we offer comprehensive eye exams in Watertown, Massachusetts to help you manage your and your family’s eye health.
Why A Comprehensive Eye Exam
A comprehensive eye examination is a lot more than just a vision screening test. Along with checking for basic vision problems, these eye tests are also used to assess eye health as a whole. They may help find an eye disease or another abnormality, and often the earlier problems are discovered, the better the overall diagnosis. Especially if your family has a history of eye or vision problems, a comprehensive eye exam may find these issues before they are too problematic.
Our eye exams will look for irregularities with your eyes or vision such as:
- Peripheral vision problems
- Dry eye
- Crossed eyes
- Lazy eye
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Eye diseases like glaucoma
- Eye alignment problems
If your doctor discovers any of these problems early with these exams, they are better able to make an accurate treatment or management plan before emergency eye care may be required.
Our Eye Exams in Watertown, MA
When you come to our office for a comprehensive eye exam, you will undergo a series of eye exam tests to examine your vision as well as your overall eye health. While simple in nature, these tests can tell us a lot about your eye health.
At our Watertown office, our comprehensive eye exams include:
- A refraction test to assess basic vision problems
- A visual fields test to detect obstructions in the field of vision
- A visual acuity test to evaluate distance vision
- A cover test to see how each eye works independently of one another
