Regular well-vision exams are critical to vision health
What is a well-vision eye exam?
A well-vision exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your eyes and vision health. Regular well-vision exams are your number one defense against eye diseases or conditions that can cause your vision or eye health to deteriorate over time. Many eye diseases cause few symptoms – some don't noticeable changes in vision and can go undetected for years. A comprehensive eye exam can help identify diseases in their early stages when they're most treatable.
Dunes Eye Consultants uses the most advanced technology to measure how well you see objects that are near and far, as well as peripheral vision and depth of field, and to evaluate your overall eye health. Our doctors may also dilate your eyes, enabling them to see inside your eye to check for signs of eye disease or other conditions that could impair vision or health over time.
How often should I have a comprehensive eye exam?
Most health care providers recommend well-vision exams annually, with regular visits becoming more important as you get older. If you have existing vision problems or eye health issues, more frequent visits may be recommended.
Children should have their first eye exam by the time they're six months to identify potential problems that occur soon after birth, and again before first grade to make sure vision problems don’t affect their adjustment to school.
