Whether you have been wearing glasses since a young age or assume you have perfect 20/20 vision, routine eye exams by a professional optometrist are important in order to keep your vision healthy. The advanced eye care specialists at Florida Eye Care Association do more than determine the right type of eye glass prescription. We do comprehensive checks to evaluate your eyesight for any signs of deterioration or diseases and we consult you on how best to care for your eyes. Some of the medical eye exams we offer include the following:
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes can damage the small blood vessels in your retina, which in turn can cause damage to your eyes. Diabetes also increases your risk of glaucoma and can be the source of other problems related to your vision. As a diabetic, you need regular eye exams. The eye care specialists at Florida Eye Care Association can conduct a dilated eye exam, ophthalmoscopy and visual acuity tests in order to ensure the health of your eyesight.
Glaucoma Eye Exams
During a glaucoma eye exam, our optometrists will measure the pressure in your eyes. Some of the common tests we conduct include a pupil dilatation test, the applanation tonometer test and the non-contact tonometry test. All of our glaucoma eye exams are painless and can help determine the level of pressure in your eye and whether you need additional eye care treatment.
Dry Eye Testing
Dry eye syndrome can be challenging to diagnose and treat. There are a number of different symptoms that an eye care specialist will need to check for in order to properly evaluate the source of the problem. Some of the root causes may include decreased tear production and aqueous deficiency.
Computer Vision Syndrome Exams
Sitting in front of a computer for a prolonged period of time can put a lot of strain on a person’s eyes. Today’s work and communication environment means most people can’t avoid using digital technologies. If you experience blurred vision, eyestrain, headaches, neck and shoulder pain or dry eyes then you should book an appointment at Florida Eye Care Association to check your eyes.
Red Eye Exams
Dilated or swollen blood vessels in the white outer surface of the eye can lead to red eyes. Symptoms of red eyes include itching, pain, discharge from the eyes and blurred vision. Our specialists can prescribe a simple treatment plan to help you with irrigated, blood shot or red eyes.
Determining whether the source of your eye irritation is allergies is the first step to finding a treatment plan that works for you. Our eye care specialists run a range of convenient tests to determine whether you are experiencing eye irritation due to allergies as well as the source of your allergies. Always seek professional help when it comes to allergies and your vision.
