At Pflugerville, our detailed vision examinations will accurately diagnose any visual issues you may be experiencing. Typically, this means refractive errors, however, as part of our regular exams we also test for other ocular diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and more.
Eye Exams for Kids
We regularly perform vision examinations on children 5 years of age and older. We are also able to perform vision tests on patients that are unfamiliar with numbers, or the letters of the alphabet. For these types of patients, we have a unique vision test that will give us a diagnosis just as accurate as the standard vision test.
Importance of Regular Check ups
Regular optical checkups are important for both children and adults.If you think your prescription has remained the same, or even if you don’t currently require glasses, it’s still important to attend your regular appointments. During your check up, there are many things we look for, other than refractive errors. This includes:
- Eye Disease
- Eye Alignment/Congruency
- Computer Vision Syndrome
Early detection with eye disease can be a major factor in the ultimate effectiveness of your treatment. Glaucoma, for example, is an eye disease that exhibits no sight related early warning signs. Once you begin to notice distortion in your vision as a result of glaucoma, the disease has often progressed substantially.
At Pflugerville we offer a number a treatment options for your visual correction. It’s important to us that you look and feel great, which is why we always have a large selection of fashionable glasses and contact lenses on display.If a surgical treatment is needed, we would be more than happy to educate you on your various options, and provide referrals if needed.
