      Comprehensive Eye Health Exam Q & A

      How often should I have an eye exam?

      Dr. Turner recommends you have a comprehensive eye health exam yearly. Getting your eyes checked every year not only helps her keep on top of how well you can see, but it also allows her to check for the presence of eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and corneal diseases.

      What can I expect during a comprehensive eye health exam?

      A comprehensive inventory of your medical history and health concerns will be obtained. Additional tests will be performed to assess your eye health, such as:

      Tonometer test

      This test allows Dr. Turner to gauge the internal pressure of your eye and assess your risk for glaucoma.

      Autorefractor / Auto-Keratometer test

      The autorefractor measures the power of your eye to assist Dr. Turner in refining your refraction. The auto-keratometer measures the curvature of your cornea which shows corneal diseases and dystrophy.

      Visual fields test

      This test measures your central peripheral vision. This test measures your central and peripheral vision. It’s very useful when managing glaucoma and macular degeneration.

      Retinal Photography / Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

      Dr. Turner highly recommends retinal photography with Optomap®, which is an advanced tool she uses to create an image of your eyes. She also finds the Optomap image beneficial when comparing eye health from year to year.

      OCT scan takes a digital cross-section image of your retinal layers.

      What if I need glasses?

      If Dr. Turner determines you need glasses, she will provide you with your glasses prescription that you may use in our in-house Optical Boutique or an optical store of your choice. Our experienced opticians can help you find a pair of glasses from our wide range of frames and lenses.

      For contact lenses, Dr. Turner and her staff offer one-on-one training so you can successfully put in and take out your contacts before you leave the office.
