Regular eye exams are important to maintaining your eye health. They help in the early detection and prompt management of underlying vision problems. This way, we’ll have better chances of stopping their progression and saving your eyesight. For your understanding, Clear View Vision Care explains what happens during one.
Taking of Your Personal History
We do our best to create a private, trusting, and comfortable environment for our patients. Rest assured that we also follow HIPAA guidelines when it comes to keeping the confidentiality of your medical information. We also make sure that our consultations are uninterrupted to make the most of your time.
Since heredity is a common risk factor for most eye conditions, we may ask about your personal and family histories. This is an essential step to establishing your risk of having some of them, serving as our guide in creating an appropriate and effective eye care plan. We may ask if you or any of your family members have had conditions, like macular degeneration, diabetes, or hypertension, which may cause vision-related complications. We may also ask about any medications or procedures you’ve had which may affect your current eye health.
Performing Applicable Vision Tests and Procedures
We may then have you undergo some tests to evaluate your ocular structures and their respective functions. We use the latest technologies and advanced instruments to ensure an accurate diagnosis. Our Optos panoramic imaging equipment, for example, takes high-resolution retinal pictures, making disease identification faster and easier. This way, we’ll be able to provide prompt and necessary treatment as soon as possible.
Explaining Our Findings and Recommendations
Afterward, we’ll explain your test results and our suggested treatment plan. We believe that having a complete and solid understanding of your current eye health is instrumental to improving your eyesight. If we find you have dry eyes, for example, we may recommend our Lipiflow® System for your better visual comfort. We also have a large selection of optical devices for your enhanced visual acuity. We’ll make sure to answer all your questions for your understanding. We’ll also remind you when to return for your next checkup to ensure continuity of care.
