First Eye Exam with our Kennesaw Optometrist
Hobson Eye Associates is your vision partner in the greater Kennesaw area and look forward to providing the eye care needs of your entire family! Eye exams are an important way to monitor your vision and address any issues in a timely manner. Additionally, there are many conditions such as heart issues and diabetes that can contribute to worsening vision. Many eye conditions and diseases are asymptomatic in their early stages which can lead to further damage to the eyes; receiving regular eye care is an effective way to prevent these problems from developing and going without treatment.
Eye Care as We Age
A child's first eye exam will focus on checking their vision for any deficiencies or abnormalities. Many children experience difficulty in school that is later to be caused by vision issues that have gone undetected. Every school-age child should receive a comprehensive eye exam and vision screening before they begin school and every year thereafter. As we age vision care is important to ensure that we are not developing any eye-related conditions and to help preserve clear eyesight.
Even if you do not need corrective lenses, a regular eye exam is always a good idea. Patients in their senior years can develop conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts that can all contribute to a loss of vision.
It is Important to Get Regular Eye Care and Check-Ups
At your eye exam, you can expect to have a vision screening where you will read letters on a chart to determine if you need corrective lenses. You will also be tested for color blindness through a screening exam. Next, you will undergo a cover test that will help your doctor to determine how well your eyes work together. Ocular motility and depth perception will also be tested during the exam.
If you are in need of corrective eyeglasses your eye doctor will perform a retinoscopy that can approximate the prescription level that you need. During the refraction process, your eye doctor will give you the option of various lenses and asks which is clearer. This part of the exam helps to ensure that your prescription is at the correct level.
