Comprehensive Eye Exams
The purpose of a comprehensive eye examination is not only to correct blurry vision, but also to detect and prevent eye diseases. Proper eye exams can detect early eye problems that may lead to vision and even hearing loss and reduce the risk future eye diseases.
Here at Visionmax Optometry, every comprehensive eye exam is approximately thirty minutes to an hour. You will need to provide a brief medical history before a comprehensive assessment of your vision.
During the examination, there will be a sequence of tests such as, dilated eye exams and eye pressure testing, to determine the health of your eyes. At the end of your eye exam, our doctors will discuss the current condition and health of your eyes and provide you with possible solutions such as prescriptions, contact lenses, and even additional testing if needed. We strive to do our best to be efficient, but thoroughness is our most important goal.
Most patients are capable of driving after the exam, but, if you have concerns, it is important that you make arrangements in advance.

Glaucoma is a silent eye disease that damages your eye’s optic nerves which can lead to permanent blindness. According to www.aao.org, “about three million Americans have glaucoma, but only about half of them know that they have glaucoma.” Early detection of glaucoma can help preserve your vision.
One of the major problems with glaucoma is that there are typically no sysmptoms during its early states, so many patients who have glaucoma do not know they have it until it is too late. In order to do a proper glaucoma evaluation, the doctor should not only check eye pressure (tonometry), but also inspect your eye’s drainage angle (gonioscopy), inspect your optic nerve (ophthalmoscopy), and test your peripheral.
People suffering from Macular Degeneration has a high risk of vision loss. In fact, it is the leading cause of vision loss, more than cataracts and glaucoma combined! Over ten million Americans suffer from Macular Degeneration and here at Visionmax Optometry it is a mandatory evaluation we provide with every eye examination.
Macular Degenration is caused by the deterioration of the Macular located inside the retina. It is an important part of the retina as it helps our ability to focus and see objects in fine detail. Currently, it is still considered an incurable eye disease, but early detection can help manage the disease.
