Like all aspects of your health, it is important to maintain regular checkups with your eye doctor to make sure any vision disorders are properly treated. According to a study by the National Institutes of Health, over 14 million Americans have a visual impairment issue, and 80 percent of them can be corrected with contact lenses or eyeglasses. Our dedicated eye doctors at Total Vision Eye Health Associates provide a variety of eye care services, including vision and eye exams.
How Often Do I Need a Vision Exam?
If you don't have any vision issues, it is recommended to get a vision exam every 3 to 5 years, even if you have perfect vision. However, if you have a pre-existing vision disorder, our eye doctor will recommend a checkup every one to two years. Vision exams are valuable and can provide information on what specific vision disorders you have, if the treatment is working, and what treatment options are available.
Visit Our Optometrists in Port Orange
Dr. Wilgers, Dr. Peterson or Dr. Granger will conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine if you are suffering from refractive errors or other issues that may cause an eye health problem. It is important to visit one of our optometrists in Port Orange if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Blurry vision
- Double vision
- Eye fatigue
- Trouble seeing at night
- Increasing glare
- Constant squinting
These symptoms may indicate you have an underlying vision disorder, such as astigmatism, myopia, or hyperopia.
How an Eye Doctor Can Help
After conducting a vision exam, the eye doctor will determine an appropriate treatment for you or your loved one. Many vision issues can easily be treated through the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. If you would like a more permanent solution, we can also refer you for permanent eye surgery such as LASIK surgery, which permanently fixes several types of vision disorders caused by refractive errors.
Furthermore, our eye doctor can determine through vision and eye exams if your visual issues are getting worse, or if the treatment is working. We can also recommend other treatments for visual disorders that are not caused by refractive errors, such as:
- Amblyopia or lazy eye
- Partial or full blindness
- Trauma to the eye
