Q. My vision is fine. Why do I need an eye exam?

A. We at Optique Professional Eye Care in Tulsa are dedicated to protecting, preserving and enhancing your eyesight. Comprehensive eye exams are essential not just for vision problems, but a critical, preventive measure for maintaining total health and wellness. An eye exam by Dr. Ozment can help you see better and allow for the diagnosis a variety of eye health or vision conditions. It can also detect signs of common health conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. A annual comprehensive ocular health examination should always be a part of your healthcare routine.

 

Q. How often should I have an eye exam?

A.  You should not go longer than two years between eye exams, an eye exam is recommended every year.  You may need to have your eyes examined more often if there is family history of eye diseases, diabetes, you have generally poor health, or taking high risk medications that may have side effects on the eye.

 

Q. Do I need a special eye exam around age 40?

A. As we get older, we are more susceptible to certain eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. A regular comprehensive eye exam enables your eye doctor to detect the first signs of disease and initiate treatment to prevent vision loss.

 

Q. When should my child have his or her eyes examined?

A. The American Optometric Association suggests that children should have their first regular eye exam at six months of age. Another vision exam should take place when a child is around two or three years of age when their vision undergoes its most rapid development and vision correction is most effective.

School children use their eyes more often than adults to read and perform other activities, thus it is critical for them to have regular eye exams. The vision screenings performed at school typically only tests distance and may not detect some vision problems. Children can have problems with near vision, eye coordination, and focusing while still have 20/20 distance vision. If these issues are left untreated, they may cause learning disabilities, headaches, and other visual discomforts.
