Eye Exam

What happens during eye exams?

Eye exams at Todani Eye Associates include:

  • Medical history review
  • Current medication and treatment review
  • Discussion of eye symptoms such as red, swollen, or dry eyes and vision difficulties
  • Eyelid and eye exam (typically with pupil dilation) to evaluate eye health
  • Eye pressure check (glaucoma screening)
  • Visual acuity tests to evaluate your eyesight
  • Refraction to determine your eyeglasses prescription

If you wear contact lenses, or you’d like to try them, you’ll need additional special tests to measure your eyes, so contact lens exams take a little longer than standard eye exams.

When you schedule your eye exam, be sure to tell your Todani Eye Associates provider if you’re considering contacts so they can plan enough time for your appointment.   

How often do I need eye exams?

Your Todani Eye Associates provider creates a personalized eye exam schedule based on your health and specific needs. On average, most children and adults need comprehensive eye exams once a year. 

If you have specific health issues, for example, diabetes, you may need more frequent eye exams. And, you may need additional tests that the typical comprehensive eye exam doesn’t include. 

What is a diabetic eye exam?

Diabetic eye exams include all the same tests in a comprehensive eye exam along with an in-depth exam of the eye structures that are often damaged in people with diabetes. 

The blood vessels, retina, optic nerve, and other parts of the eye may sustain damage with elevated blood sugar levels. The most common diabetic eye disease, diabetic retinopathy, occurs in more than half of people with diabetes. Cataracts are up to five times as common in people with diabetes, and diabetes increases risk of glaucoma by 36%.

It’s especially important to keep up with diabetic eye exams over time. Early detection of diabetic eye diseases can help you to get the care you need to stay healthy and save your eyesight.
