Scheduling Eye Exams
Everyone should have routine eye examinations. How often you should see your ophthalmologist or eyecare specialist depends on your age, your general health and whether you have any ongoing eye disorders.

Vision Screenings
Vision screenings are done to separate those with and without possible low vision problem.Screening results may indicate a potential need for further assessment. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor.

Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures how much 'side' vision you have. It is a straightforward test, painless, and does not involve eye drops. Essentially lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. Your head is kept still. You have to rest your chin on a a chin rest. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating.

The test determines whether or not you have low vision from glaucoma and other conditions. Changes in the visual field help to determine if the sight is getting worse and the glaucoma is progressing (if it is progressing your eye needs a lower pressure).

What to Expect
As with all medicine, early diagnosis and treatment can help people with their overall health. Just as with a physical, it makes sense to visit an ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) for a routine eye exam.

A series of tests will be performed to assess acuity, refraction and potential eye disease.

Your Eye M.D. will begin by asking a series of questions about your medical and eye health history, including any noticeable eye problems. Next he or she will evaluate your visual acuity by determining the smallest letters you can read on a standardized eye chart.

Your Eye M.D. will also test for refractive errors. A refractive error means that the shape of your eye doesn't refract the light properly, so that the image you see is blurred. Although refractive errors are called eye disorders, they are not diseases.

There are four types of refractive error:

Myopia (nearsightedness): Close objects look clear, but distant objects appear blurred. Hyperopia (farsightedness): Where distant objects will look clear but close objects are blurry Astigmatism: Vision is blurred for both near and far objects.
Presbyopia: The eyes gradually lose the ability to change focus from distance to near.

Many people will have one or more of these refractive errors.

To correct a refractive error, an Eye M.D. may recommend glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery.

In some cases, certain eye diseases require laser surgery or other surgical procedures. Some of the treatments are taken care of by your regular Eye M.D. Or, you may be referred to a subspecialist, such as a cornea or retina specialist.
