Routine Eye Exam

A complete routine eye exam at Eastside Eye Physicians includes refraction and dilation of your eyes.  This is the only way to assure that your eyes are healthy or in need of treatment.  Two hours should be allotted for your visit.  Ancillary testing, such as photographs or OCT imaging may be done also.  Because your eyes will be sensitive to light afterward, you may want someone to drive you home.It’s good practice for children to have a routine eye exam at the time they can read or are about to enter school.  For adults without glasses, the general rule is 1 eye exam each decade until the age of 40, and then a baseline eye exam at 40 to determine necessary follow up exams.  After the age of 65, it’s important to have a complete eye exam every year to check for age-related eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataractsand other eye conditions.Of course, if you wear glasses or contacts, have a known eye disease or medical condition or special family history, then your schedule of eye exams will be different.
