Caring for Your Eyes Through Every Stage of Life
Your eyes and eyesight are central to your lifestyle. But did you know that your vision may be at risk? Many eye diseases don’t show any noticeable symptoms. That means your eyes could sustain serious damage over a period of years, and by the time you notice any changes, you’ll have lost a significant portion of your vision.
The good news is that this doesn’t have to happen. Park Slope Eye is fully-equipped with highly advanced diagnostic technology. When you schedule an eye appointment with us, you get a comprehensive eye health examination. We’re able to detect eye diseases in their early stages, long before you notice any vision loss.
At Park Slope Eye, we’re always working to safeguard your sight.
What to Expect From Your Eye Exam
Once we’ve got your full medical history, we can get started with your exam. An eye exam includes a series of tests to evaluate your eyesight and eye health, such as:
- Snellen chart acuity testing
- Eye-tracking and eye-teaming tests
- Refractive assessment
- Visual field testing
- Slit-lamp examination
- Retinal examination
- Glaucoma testing
When Do I Need An Eye Exam?
Adults under 65 should have an eye exam at least once every 2 years, to check for eye diseases and monitor any prescription changes.
Adults over the age of 65 are at a significantly higher risk of eye diseases than younger adults. In order to detect diseases early, those aged 65 and older should have an eye exam every year.
