Eye Exam Benefits

Eyes are not only the windows to your soul but also the organs of your vision. Taking care of your body comes with rewards and not tending to your optic needs only decreases your health and vision. Eye exams are crucial to insure that your vision isn’t changing. Having an outdated prescription lens can give you negative effects, such as headaches, pain in the optic nerves, fatigue, restlessness, and the list goes on. Our in house optometrist will inform you of any minor or major alarming issues – from astigmatisms to having glaucoma. It is very important to maintain correct vision and maintain your optic health.

Dilating Eye Exams

Having your eyes dilated for an eye exam sometimes is not explained very well. Most know of it as being blind after and having funky sunglasses. Why does eye dilating occur for eye exams? It widens your pupil, which will allow light to enter and the doctor to be able to see the back of your eye. Pupil dilation helps the optometrist to diagnose by early signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, muscular degeneration, retinal detachment, and glaucoma. Usually your eye care giver will recommend dilating your eyes based on your age, reason for visit, your eye and overall health can be factors on if dilating eyes for your exam is necessary.

For a few hours after the visit your vision still may be blurry and your eyes may still be sensitive of light. Small inconveniences in the big scheme of things. If you decide to get your eyes dilated bring a pair of sunglasses with you, unless you like the Doc Brown look from back to the future.
