Routine eye exams are essential for maintaining good eye health and preserving optimal vision. Our practice assesses the overall health of your eyes and detects potential vision problems or diseases. An annual check-up is essential for finding problems like dry eye, myopia, and other conditions. Our optometrist will also give you a new or updated prescription if you require it.
A yearly check-up is important so we can test your eyes and treatments can begin. If you have contacts or eyeglasses, you must have your annual appointment. Call Warm Springs Optometric Group in Fremont, CA, when you need a yearly eye exam.
A vision exam thoroughly evaluates a person's visual acuity and overall eye health. Our optometrist performs this eye exam, and is essential for assessing the clarity and sharpness of your vision. In addition, detect any potential eye problems or vision disorders.
Our optometrist will check your vision for abnormalities and develop the prescription you need. We will give you a series of eye tests to see how you can see in each eye. Our practice often shows you a series of letters far away and asks you to pick whether option “A” or “B” is clearer. These two options are different prescription strengths used to monitor your eyesight. Using these tools will help our optometrist narrow down your prescription. At this time, a condition like myopia or farsightedness can be diagnosed.
Our eye care professional will use specialized instruments to examine the structures of your eyes, including the cornea, iris, lens, and retina. This part of the exam helps detect eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
Several serious eye diseases and conditions can cause loss of vision. Although if you are diagnosed early, we can treat you quickly and mitigate the symptoms. An early diagnosis can treat serious eye diseases like glaucoma. Eye screening will also look for dry eye and eye infections.
