Adult & Senior Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams play a crucial role in maintaining good eyesight and ocular health. At Copper View Eye Care, we’re dedicated to ensuring your eyes are appropriately looked after.
Many common eye conditions are primarily asymptomatic in the early stages, and as they progress, irreversible damage and vision loss can occur. Trained eye care professionals and specialists can pinpoint signs of eye disease before they are given a chance to worsen.
Eye diseases and conditions can occur at any stage of life, but adults and seniors over 40 are most likely to develop:
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends adults over 40 attend a comprehensive eye examination at least once every 2 years. However, annual eye exams can ensure we have a good understanding of your ocular health and closely monitor for any changes.
Children’s Eye Exams
Your children’s eyes and vision play a significant role in their mental and physical development. Good vision makes up a large part of what your child learns as they grow, so it’s crucial to ensure their eyes are taken care of.
It’s important to monitor your child’s behavior throughout different life stages to detect any changes indicative of an eye condition. Eye conditions that commonly appear during childhood include:
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends having your child’s eyes examined at specific points in their life to ensure their eyes are functioning normally. Have their eyes looked at:
- Just after they are born
- When they are between 6 months old and their 1st birthday
- When they are old enough to cooperate with an eye chart
- Annually after they reach school-age
Diabetic Eye Exams
In the United States, over 10% of Americans live with diabetes. Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects how the body regulates insulin, which controls blood glucose levels. When your body has difficulty creating or using insulin, your blood glucose can drop or rise to dangerous levels.
The most common eye conditions related to diabetes are:
At Copper View Eye Care, we use only the latest advancements in technology to detect and diagnose diabetic eye disease. One of the diagnostic tools we use during our exams is fundus photography, specifically the Zeiss Clarus 500 Fundus Camera.
Visiting your optometrist regularly can help detect early signs of diabetic eye disease. However, noticing symptoms of diabetes ensures you get the treatment you need.
Contact Lens Exams
If you live with a refractive error, you’ve likely had to wear corrective eyewear to achieve clear vision. Contact lenses are an alternative to eyeglasses that give you added freedom and flexibility without the bulk.
When you visit Copper View Eye Care for a contact lens exam, our main goal is to ensure your vision is clear and your eyewear is comfortable. We use various diagnostic tools and measurements to ensure your eyes are suitable for typical contact lens use.
Some technology we use to assess your eyes include:
If we determine that your eyes are atypical, you may be a candidate for specialty contact lenses. Corneal irregularities, like keratoconus, mean standard contact lenses could be uncomfortable.
Specialty contact lenses, such as scleral lenses or orthokeratology, can provide you the visual acuity you need while maintaining superior comfort.
