Eye Exams Can Save Your Vision

Eye exams are a critical part of preventing vision-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma or macular degeneration. These and similar diseases may show few if any symptoms until after significant damage to the eye has already been done.

During a comprehensive eye examination, your eye doctor will be looking for initial signs of these diseases.

Eye Exams for Children & Young Adults

Our eye care experts estimate that as much as 10% of preschoolers and 25% of school-aged children have problems with their eyes or vision. To ensure that your child's vision is developing properly, you should bring them in for their first eye exam at 6 months of age. At age 3, you should bring them in again, and then begin yearly exams right before they start school for the first time. From there, every child should have an exam at least every 12 months.

Common risk factors for vision problems include:

  • premature birth
  • developmental delays
  • turned or crossed eyes
  • the family history of eye disease
  • history of eye injury
  • other physical illness or disease

Consult with our Boynton Beach optometric team for personalized recommendations to correct vision issues and help a child succeed.

What Happens During An Eye Exam?

During an eye exam at Eye & Ear of the Palm Beaches, our Boynton Beach eye doctor will check your vision and provide you with an accurate prescription for your glasses or contacts.

We'll use a basic eye chart and a phoropter to check your eyes for astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. We'll also use a retinoscope, to measure how light focuses on your retina with each of the different lenses to decide which ones best correct your vision.

These tests, among others, provide us with the information needed to check your eye health and issue an accurate prescription.

Vision Exams For Those Over 40

If you're over the age of 40, you're at higher risk for certain eye diseases such as presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration.

Beyond yearly eye exams, it's important to keep an eye out for changes in your eye health and vision, such as blurriness or double vision. You should be familiar with your potential risk factors, as well as your family's ocular and medical history.

Safeguard your vision by booking your eye exam with Eye & Ear of the Palm Beaches in Boynton Beach today.
