Primary Eye Care includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination. This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort.
Evaluations for eye health disorders are also performed. Both The American Academy of Ophthalmology and The American Optometric Association recommend that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on one’s particular needs.
Here at our office we do an evaluation of spectacle prescriptions and examine eye health from the front of the eye to the back of the eye. The doctors at Centennial Eye Assoc. specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye disease.
Examinations include tests for dry eye, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications.
A dilated pupil examination is the most thorough way to examine the back of the eye. Dilation can reveal pathology in the peripheral that would otherwise be missed. Because this is the most thorough way to view the back of the eye we recommend all patients receive a dilated exam once a year.
