Our Sandy Springs optometrist offers complete eye and vision care, from basic vision screening to comprehensive eye exams to evaluate your eye health and function.
An eye exam evaluates complete eye health and function. The eye exam determines both your visual acuity (the sharpness of your vision) and identifies any eye health problems or eye coordination problems for the earliest treatment. Our optometrist looks for physical abnormalities, eye disease like glaucoma or cataracts, and eye-teaming problems such as lazy eye. During this complete eye health exam, our Sandy Springs optometrist plans treatment for any problems diagnosed.
A vision exam is also called a vision screening and is primarily done to determine your visual acuity (how clearly you see from set distances), and the amount of vision correction you might need. In this exam, our optometrist determines your prescription for corrective lenses; eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.
The vision exam is a screening (less comprehensive) exam. It is a basic eye test and vision test for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and more. Its goal is to find the amount of vision correction, if any, required to make your vision normal, or as sharp as possible. The eye exam evaluates complete eye health and function; not only how well you see (visual acuity/sharpness), but also eye pressure, depth perception, and other physical and functional aspects of your eyes.
A complete eye and vision exam typically includes, depending upon your age and medical history:
Visit our optometrist at least annually, but also make an appointment anytime you notice vision changes. If you have eye disease or chronic health issues, like high blood pressure or diabetes, our optometrist may advise more frequent eye exams.
