Your eyes are truly a window to your health! When we experience obvious problems such as an injury to the eye or blurry vision, we seek treatment. However, when our eyes feel good and our vision is fine, we tend not to visit an eye doctor. Routine eye examinations are important as many eye diseases that cause blindness can have few or no warning signs. The earlier these conditions are diagnosed, the more treatment options available. We want you to have the best possible vision, not just today, but in the future as well. You only have one set of eyes. Let us keep them performing at their best!
Dr. Correale’s exams are a thorough evaluation of the eye and the entire visual system. The examination will utilize state of the art diagnostic equipment to assess not just vision correction but your entire ocular health. These tests are used to diagnose potential conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration and detect possible complications from underlying health conditions or medicines.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my personal background important?
To make a thorough eye exam, our optometry doctor will ask you some questions about your vision and your overall health.
Why does the doctor ask me, “Which is better: one or two?”
While assessing your prescription, the physician will offer you a few series of lenses so that you can compare them and define which allows you to see better. Then, the doctor will give you a prescription. If you can’t choose between those options, it means you’re almost done with this part of the exam!
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
High blood pressure can affect your eyes’ blood vessels, causing future vision problems.
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This part of the examination will help your doctor to define the reaction of your pupils and eye muscles as well as to assess your neurological function.
Is it necessary for the doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
It is not always necessary to dilate pupils, it’s up to your doctor to make this decision. You don’t have to worry if this happens, this process is painless. By doing so, your physician will check your retina more thoroughly. Dilation can also assist in the detection of such diseases as diabetes, high blood pressure, and macular degeneration.
