When was the last time you had your eyes professionally examined and evaluated? Many people tend to take their vision and eye health for granted, and do not include eye exams as part of their regular health maintenance. If you do not get your eyes examined regularly, it is something you should seriously consider. Our Philadelphia eye doctor and the rest of the staff here at Eye Encounters firmly believe in the importance of regular comprehensive eye exams when it comes to our preventative philosophy of eye care.
Having your eyes checked out on a regular basis allows our Philadelphia eye doctor to uncover any developing conditions or problem areas much earlier on than if you waited for telltale symptoms to arise. In fact, many of the most dangerous and detrimental eye conditions can develop significantly without presenting any noticeable symptoms that you would recognize on your own. During each comprehensive eye exam, our Philadelphia eye doctor will use a series of testing methods to carefully evaluate your eye health as well as your visual acuity. Some examples of testing methods include: a slit lamp examination, a cover test, a retinal examination, a dilated eye exam, and more. All of these testing methods come together to allow our Philadelphia eye doctor to make an in-depth and accurate evaluation of the current state of your eyes and vision. At the conclusion of the exam, we will share your results with you and make any recommendations needed to improve your vision or eye health. How often you should have your eyes examined varies from individual to individual, so our Philadelphia eye doctor will give you an idea of when you should return for your next exam at Eye Encounters.
