What Is A Health Eye Exam?

A health eye exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your eyes. It checks for common problems with your eyes and potential risk factors based on your lifestyle, age, and previous eye exams. An eye doctor in Shreveport may suggest different solutions to keep your eyes healthy after the exam to ensure that you see clearly and have a low risk of long-term complications. We may also look for chronic eye conditions or discuss risks associated with changes to your health.

What to Expect During the Exam

During annual eye examinations, you can expect a doctor to ask for basic health information. We may ask about changes to your health and any medications you take for ailments. Since health concerns like diabetes or high blood pressure may contribute to changes in your vision or the risk of developing eye conditions, we ask for the information to ensure that we keep track of potential concerns.

After filling out basic paperwork and discussing any changes to your physical health or medications you take, we check for changes to your vision. You read an eye chart with each eye to check on your current vision. We may also use tools to identify an appropriate prescription when you need corrective lenses. After reading the chart, we look directly at your eyes and we may check the pressure of your eyes. In some cases, we may recommend more comprehensive evaluations and dilating your eyes if we have concerns about specific conditions in the eyes.

When to Consider an Eye Exam in Shreveport

As a general rule, we recommend annual eye exams in Shreveport for most individuals due to the possibility of changes to your vision. We may suggest more regular visits if you have signs of glaucoma, cataracts or macular degeneration. We also recommend more regular visits if you have diabetes due to the risks that may arise from changes in your blood sugar levels. Pregnant women should also have an eye examination because hormonal changes may impact vision and eye health.

We definitely suggest an eye exam for children before they start school and each year until adulthood. Since a child's eyes are changing and developing, they need annual exams to keep up with their vision and eye health.

Your eyes are an important part of your experiences and your lifestyle. When you notice changes in your vision, you want to seek treatment from a professional. Regular exams help you keep up with your eyes and avoid complications when a condition develops. To learn more about treating eye conditions or to set up an appointment, call 318-798-4000 today. We look forward to meeting with you!
