Annual comprehensive eye examinations are an important part of preventative healthcare. It's more than just updating your glasses prescription - we evaluate the overall health of your eye.

Often many eye conditions have no obvious signs or symptoms and are discovered during an annual comprehensive eye exam. Early detection and treatment improves your quality of life and can prevent vision loss.

This is what you can expect during your comprehensive eye exam at Optical Studio:

  • Review your visual and systemic health history
  • Discussion of current medications, social and environmental influences and family medical history
  • Visual acuity measurement
  • Evaluation of color vision and depth perception
  • Refraction (using lenses to find your corrective prescription)
  • Eye pressure measurement
  • Dilated evaluation of your retinal and systemic health

Pediatric eye care is all too often overlooked as part of a child’s preventative care, relying instead on screenings at the pediatrician or at school. Many vision problems are relatively asymptomatic in a child's early years and can be easily missed. The American Optometric Association recommends comprehensive eye exams for all children at 6 months, 3 years, before first grade, and annually thereafter unless otherwise indicated.

Your child may not recognize they are having vision difficulty because they think the way they see is the way everybody sees. Some signs that your child may have a vision problem include eye rubbing, increased blinking, short attention span, avoiding close activities like reading, covering one eye, tilting the head to one side or seeing double.

If you notice your child with any of these symptoms, please give our office a call at 413-584-6616 to schedule their comprehensive eye examination.
