Eye Exams for Chevy Chase, Rockville, and Aspen Hill and Surrounding Areas
How important is your eyesight to you? If you can't even find the words to describe what your vision has done for you -- or the idea of living without that vision - then you understand why it matters to catch and correct any serious eye issues as early as possible. Here at Eyeland Eye Care Centers, we can help you and your entire families maintain optimal vision through our comprehensive eye exams for Chevy Chase, Rockville, and Aspen Hill and surrounding areas.
The Need for Regular Eye Exams
For some people, the only time they ever get their vision tested is when they're renewing their driver's license. But those brief, superficial checks don't count as genuine evaluations. For one thing, they can't tell you what kind of correction your vision might require. Even worse, they can't detect lurking diseases and disorders that might rob you of your eyesight entirely. Conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma may take years to make the presence obvious to you -- and by then, you may have already suffered some permanent vision loss.
The comprehensive eye exams at Eyeland Eye Care Centers are designed to catch these kinds of problems while they're still in their early stages, giving us time to implement treatment that can correct your vision and/or preserve your eyesight for many years to come. Scheduling such exams on a regular basis should therefore be an essential part of your eye care routine.
Comprehensive Evaluations from Our Eye Doctor Team
Our comprehensive evaluations follow somewhat different criteria for kids as opposed to adults. Pre-school children get three major pediatric eye exams aimed at identifying and correcting common challenges to normal visual development. Ideally, older kids and adults receive a comprehensive eye exam each year, especially if our eye doctor team is treating an eye condition or refractive error. Seniors aged 60 and over definitely need annual exams so we can catch age-specific issues such as macular degeneration.
In a typical exam, your optometrist will dilate your pupils to examine your retinas and optic nerves, in addition to viewing the front of the eye for lens or corneal diseases. We will also check how well your eyes function and measure your ability to see clearly as different distance levels. If you need corrective lenses or eye disease treatment, you can get that help right here.
