How Our Hendersonville Doctor Approaches Comprehensive Eye Exams
If you’ve never had an eye exam before, you might be wondering what exactly it entails and what to expect. The answer depends on a few factors, such as whether you are getting a contact lens exam or simply a vision exam. Every eye examination performed at the office of Dr. Elizabeth Todd & Associates, however, will include a few key components. When you visit our Hendersonville office, you can expect the following:
- Discussion of any symptoms
- Regular vision acuity test
- Test for eye functionality
- Overall exam of eye health
A vision examination is a painless and simple procedure. It’s also the best way to care for your eyes and vision. Kids, too, can benefit from an eyeglass exam to ensure they have healthy vision.
How Often Should You Schedule Your Ocular Health Checkup?
If you need a contact exam, it is recommended that you schedule an eye checkup every one to three years. There are some signs that you may need an optical exam sooner, including:
- Blurred vision
- Frequent headaches
- Glasses or contacts become ineffective
- Worsening vision
- Spots in vision
- Pain in eyes
- Seeing double
