Routine Eye Exams for
Long-Term Eye Health

You may think of your eye exam as an opportunity to update your eyewear prescription and pick out a new pair of glasses. And while we love helping patients with these matters, eye exams are so much more than this. They’re actually an essential part of preventive health care.

A routine eye exam assesses your overall eye health, detects common vision problems, tests for common eye diseases, and ensures your prescription is helping you see clearly and comfortably. 

Eye exams are also invaluable tools for evaluating your overall health and can even uncover health conditions seemingly unrelated to your eyes—like diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes, and autoimmune diseases.

Our team at CHROMA modern Eyewear Eyecare is devoted to protecting your eye health and vision from now into the future.

When Should You Have an Eye Exam?

Everyone’s eyes are different and thus require an individualized eye exam schedule. In general, we recommend following the exam frequency suggested by the American Optometric Association (AOA):

  • Adults between 18 and 64 should have an eye exam at least every year, or more frequently if high risk.
  • Adults over 65 should have an eye exam every year, or more often if high risk.

You may be considered high risk if you:

  • Have a personal or family history of ocular disease
  • Have a systemic health condition with potential ocular side effects.
  • Work in a visually demanding occupation or an environment that presents risks to the eyes
  • Take prescription or nonprescription drugs with ocular side effects
  • Have functional vision in only one eye
  • Wear contact lenses
  • Have had eye surgery or a previous eye injury
  • Have a high or progressive refractive error
  • Have other eye-related health concerns or conditions

Tests Included in a Comprehensive Eye Exam

A comprehensive eye exam includes several noninvasive and generally comfortable tests that assess your total eye health and vision. Some of these tests involve: 

If you have unique risks or needs, we may perform additional tests to help us catch early signs of specific vision problems and eye diseases.

Advanced Technology for Advanced Eye Care

We’ve invested heavily in advanced diagnostic technologies so we can view your eyes in detail. These technologies provide noninvasive, high-quality results that allow us to detect even the slightest signs of an eye problem at its earliest stages.

Ultra-Wide Field Digital Fundus Photography

Ultra-wide field digital fundus photography is a mouthful, but this noninvasive test is an invaluable tool. We use it to take high-definition color images of key parts of your eyes, including the retina, retinal blood vessels, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole.

These images can reveal several distinct eye diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), macular edema, and retinal detachment.

At CHROMA we offer macular wellness exams using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to every one of our patients. OCT is another noninvasive imaging technology that takes detailed cross-sectional images of your retina’s layers, allowing your optometrist to map and measure them.

These images help us catch even the earliest signs of vision loss or eye disease before it can affect your vision. We can also use these images to monitor the progression of other eye diseases like glaucoma.

Specular microscopy is a noninvasive imaging technique we use to obtain a clear picture of your corneal health. It produces high-magnification images of the corneal endothelium, which help us diagnose and monitor problems with your cornea.

The binocular indirect ophthalmoscope is an indispensable and noninvasive diagnostic tool used to detect conditions with the retina, like retinal tears and detachments and retinopathy. This tool allows your eye doctor to see a 3D rendition of your inner eye during a routine exam.
