What to expect at your eye exam
- You’ll be asked about your medical history and any vision problems you might be experiencing.
- Your vision will then be tested to see if you need glasses or contact lenses to improve your vision.
- Your optometrist will measure your eye pressure.
- Using several lights to evaluate the front of the eye and inside of each eye, the doctor will check the overall health of your eyes.
- Finally, the results of your exam will be discussed with you.
How often you will need to schedule your appointments varies based on your individual needs.
