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.
Eye Exams and Early Disease Detection
Our eyes are one of the essential organs in our body. They allow us to see the world around us and take in all its beauty. Eye exams are a critical part of eye health and care. They can detect problems early before they cause severe damage.
We invite you to Pflugerville Vision Care for a comprehensive eye exam. Our optometrist is a skilled professional who leaves no stone unturned regarding your eye health. We serve the areas of North Austin and Pflugerville, TX.
Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Eye exams can help with early disease detection. Many vision problems, if left untreated, can lead to serious health complications. We can help you avoid these complications early and protect your vision.
Eye exams can also help ensure that you see as clearly as possible. Over time, our vision can change, and updating our eyeglass or contact lens prescription is essential. This way, you can be sure that you are seeing the world around you in the most transparent way possible. Finally, eye exams are an excellent opportunity to talk with our optometrist about your eye health. We can answer any questions and help you understand how to care for your eyes.
We can detect problems during an eye exam, including diabetic eye conditions, cataracts, dry eye, and glaucoma. Macular degeneration is another serious condition that an eye exam can help detect, among others.
What Happens During an Eye Exam?
During an eye exam, our optometrist will start by asking you about your personal and family health history. This information can help assess your risk for specific eye problems. We will then move on to a series of vision tests, such as the optimal retinal scan. We will also check your eyes for any signs of disease or damage.
After the vision tests, our optometrist will observe the health of your eyes. We will check for any signs of infection, inflammation, or eye disease. We will also assess the health of your cornea, iris, and pupil. We will dilate your eyes during this part of the exam to get a better view.
Once we have completed the exam, we will sit down with you to discuss our findings. We will review any vision problems and discuss treatment options with you. We will also answer any questions you may have about your eye health.
