What To Expect During an eye exam
When you come in for your exam, you should bring your contact lenses and eyeglasses, in addition to a list of all medications you are taking.
In general, eye evaluations at Baton Rouge Eye Physicians take about 30 – 90 minutes. Your eye exam will start with a routine vision test to assess the sharpness of your vision. If any visual impairment is detected, we will perform a series of tests to examine your visual acuity further and the different structures of your eyes to determine if corrective lenses are needed for clear vision. During this time, we may dilate your pupils to evaluate the condition of your retina, optic nerve, blood vessels, and the macula, as well as to look for signs of glaucoma.
When your eye exam is complete, we will talk to you about planning your next visit. Even patients who receive healthy results should continue to schedule eye exams every 2 – 4 years. That way, if any concerns occur, they will be caught and treated as early as possible. Remember that if we decide to dilate your pupils, you will need to have someone drive you home after your exam.
monitor Your Eye Health
Generally, patients aren't concerned with their eye health until a visual impairment arises. But, ocular health extends further than only vision. Baton Rouge Eye Physicians uses cutting-edge equipment and techniques to evaluate your eyes to ensure that any issues are caught and treated promptly. We invite you to set up a comprehensive eye exam for you and your family at our office in Baton Rouge, LA.
