Eye Examinations in Addison and Burbank, IL
At The Eye Care Center Limited, with locations in Addison and Burbank, IL, we believe in providing comprehensive eye care services for individuals of all ages. You can't underestimate the importance of a regular eye examination. Many people who have a vision or eye health problem don't realize it because of little or no symptoms. Our optometry experts recommended an exam to help keep your eyes in check.
Before your exam, it's essential to come prepared with information about medications your taking, current vision problems, or concerns. You should also know about a family history of eye problems. The purpose of this is to help our eye doctors gather relevant information that can be used for eye care services.
It's our priority to ensure you have clear vision, whether you wear glasses or contacts. Our doctors will perform a visual acuity test to measure how you see close-up and far away, which involves reading a series of letters. Our eye doctors will also perform the following vision tests:
- Refraction: Helped determine the correct prescription level you need
- Visual field tests: Checks for dysfunction in your peripheral (side) vision
Eye Movement and Function
An eye exam also involves testing on how well your eyes function. More specifically, our optometry team will examine how well your eyes respond to light stimuli, how they move, and how they focus together (eye teaming).
Eye Health Testing
It's crucial to understand eye exams involve testing for potential eye diseases that could compromise your quality of life and vision. Screening for these conditions is critical because they often go unnoticed in the early stages.
- Tonometry: Checks for glaucoma by measuring the pressure in your eye
- Pupil dilation: Allows us to examine the structures of your retina more closely
- Slit-lamp exam: Light is used to examine portions of the eye and detect eye conditions like macular degeneration and cataracts
Importance of An Eye Examination
Eye diseases and vision problems need to be diagnosed before they become worse. Many diseases, such as glaucoma, can lead to vision loss or even blindness. Our optometrists have the training and tools needed to keep your eyes healthy. We'll also work with you to get the right pair of glasses or contacts based on your preferences.
