Comprehensive eye exams are the yearly commitment that will give you the peace of mind to know that your vision is as good as it can be with correction, and that your eye health is being given the attention it deserves. At the practice of Jerry Wake, you can depend on expert eye care.
When you come to our Compton optometry office, our eye doctor will screen your vision by doing some basic tests. You’ll read from an eye chart, and a refractive assessment is done, in which you are tested with various strength lenses to find out which give you the sharpest and clearest vision. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia are all vision concerns that can be addressed with a pair of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses from our Compton optometry office. You may have more than one. If so, you will be given bifocal or multi-focal lenses. It makes such a big difference when you can see optimally easily without having to struggle. The second part of your visit is based on the diagnosis of eye diseases. Common ones include glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. You may be wondering why this is important if you feel fine and have no symptoms. The answer is that common eye diseases develop and progress through their early stages without any noticeable symptoms to alert you. This means that you can have one and not be aware at all until damage to your eyes or vision loss have occurred. And since either of those outcomes might be irreversible, you can understand why a yearly eye exam is so essential.
