Comprehensive Eye Exams

Why Regular Eye Exams Are Important

Regular eye exams are an essential part of preventive eye care, whether you wear corrective eyewear or not. At Premier Eyecare Associates, our comprehensive eye exams are more than a prescription update — they can provide valuable early detection for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), all of which can lead to vision loss if left untreated.

Broader health conditions that affect the eyes, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can also be assessed during a comprehensive eye exam.

What Makes Up a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

We’ll start by getting to know you and reviewing your history to see if there are any existing risk factors or conditions that we need to know about.

Next, one of our optometrists will evaluate depth perception, visual acuity, peripheral vision (side vision), eye movements, and how your pupils respond to light.

Finally, your doctor will examine the structures of your eyes using advanced diagnostic technology, such as OCT scans and fundus photography, to look for signs of disease. If you need new eyewear, they’ll generate a precise vision prescription using the results of your testing.

Specialized Eye Exams

When it comes to a truly comprehensive eye exam, one size doesn’t fit all. We can provide initial assessments, using the latest and best technology, before addressing your unique needs with a range of more specialized solutions:

Pediatric Eye Exams

Regular eye tests for children are vitally important. Visual conditions such as lazy eye (amblyopia) or severe nearsightedness (myopia) are more common, and it’s best if caught and addressed during early childhood to ensure the best outcomes. And if your child has vision issues, this can lead to headaches and trouble keeping up with schoolwork — which we can help prevent!

Dry Eye Management

Dry Eyes is a chronic and progressive condition that affects millions of people globally, and its causes can vary greatly. Under the care of an optometrist, it is easily treated for clearer, more comfortable vision. Our comprehensive eye exams can help uncover the root of the issue and allow you to manage this uncomfortable condition for relief, now and in the future.

Eye Disease Management

If our range of screenings uncover an eye disease, our team can help you manage it. For example, when caught early, diseases like glaucoma, AMD, and diabetic retinopathy can be routinely managed to prevent long-term vision loss. No matter the condition, our eye doctors are armed with the latest knowledge and are committed to personalizing your care!

Eye Disease Management

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are contact lenses that arch over the cornea — instead of resting on top of it like standard contacts — to rest on the “sclera,” or whites of your eyes. This helps with conditions such as keratoconus, severe dry eye, and other cornea issues. Our eye doctors are happy to discuss if scleral lenses are appropriate for your case.

Surgical Consults

Premier’s eye doctors are qualified to give consultations on laser eye surgery if you’re interested in exploring options for vision correction beyond eyeglasses or contact lenses. We can assess if you’re a strong candidate for laser vision correction, and connect you with a trusted local surgeon.
