If you are looking for a vision practice where you will be able to have a top-notch eye exam, you will definitely want to make an appointment to see our optometrist at A Visual Affair. When you need to have a thorough eye exam in Washington, D.C. You can do no better than to be seen by our doctor of optometry, Dr. Bindal.
Since many eye disease and disorders show no obvious symptoms in the early stages, it is very important that people come in for comprehensive eye exams on a regular basis. Even if you are experiencing no vision disturbances whatsoever, you still want to make sure that you do not have any eye diseases which are developing without your knowing it. Our eye doctor recommends that patients have annual eye exams, especially those patients who already wear corrective lenses, or who have had a history of eye disease. Our eye exam in Washington, D.C. takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
During our eye exam, our optometrist will perform many different tests. It will be determined what your current eyeglass prescription should be, and if there are any special circumstances that you need eyeglasses for. For example if you use the computer for many hours during the day this information may make some kind of difference in your prescription. There will also be a complete eye health evaluation which will include detection of cataracts or other vision problems. You will also have a neurological and binocular evaluation. Our doctor will also take measurements of your intraocular pressure so that possible glaucoma can be detected. You will also receive a retinal exam that will be able to detect certain diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, or macular degeneration. Your eyes will also be examined for any retinal holes or tears. Our optometrist will definitely take the time to explain the findings of the exam, and answer any questions you may have. A dilated eye exam is usually scheduled at a later time to make sure that there is as little disruption to your daily schedule as possible. This is because some patients will not be able to drive or return to regular activities for some time after the dilating eye drops have been administered.
