Routine Eye Exams
How do I know when to get an eye exam?
Regular dilated eye exams should be part of your routine health care. However, if you believe your vision has recently changed, you should see your eye care professional as soon as possible.
Most causes of blurry vision are due to ametropia (defocus of the eye) and can be corrected by simply wearing glasses or contact lenses.Myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia are the most common types of ametropia.
A comprehensive eye examination will determine the cause of your blurry vision, in addition to evaluating your overall ocular health. At the completion of your eye exam, your doctor will review your diagnosis with you and will discuss your best options for glasses, contact lenses or laser vision correction.
