Regular eye exams are as important as having an annual physical with your primary care physician. Some of the leading causes of blindness, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, may do irreparable damage to your eyes for years before the first signs of vision loss become apparent to you -- and there is no way to regain that lost vision. Early detection is crucial, with comprehensive eye and vision exams from our eye doctor in Long Grove (Dr. Cohan or Dr. Pott) serving as your first line of defense against devastating eye diseases.
Different people may require comprehensive eye exams in Long Grove at varying intervals based on age or medical condition. Children should receive their first exam around 6 months of age. Our doctors typically recommend that children and adults of all ages have an annual dilated eye exam, even if corrective lenses have not been prescribed. This allows our doctors to monitor vision development for children and possible changes in eye health for people of all ages. It is important to discuss the frequency of eye exams with your optometrist to ensure the best possible vision care for your individual needs.
The eye health exam is a critical aspect of a comprehensive exam. Your optometrist in Long Grove, IL will dilate your pupils to view the inside of your eye as completely as possible, examining the retina, optic nerves and other structures for signs of disease. Eye pressure testing helps us catch possible glaucoma. We also use an instrument called a slit lamp to study the cornea, sclera, lens and other structures at the front of the eye.
Proper eye function is necessary so your eyes and brain can collaborate to create clear, recognizable images. Your optometrist in Long Grove, IL can use a variety of simple tests to evaluate your depth perception, focusing ability, eye teaming and tracking, peripheral vision, color vision, and other functions. Eye function testing is especially critical for children whose visual skills are still being developed.
Vision testing can reveal whether you're suffering from a refractive error -- a problem with the way incoming light is directed onto the retina. Common refractive errors include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, as well as an age-related issue called presbyopia. Your eye doctor in Long Grove will have you read various lines on an eye chart, which represent different distances. For instance, if you have difficulty with distance viewing, you may be nearsighted; if near vision is blurry, then you're farsighted. We will then have you read the lines again through a viewer called a phoropter as we try different corrections to find your prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
Early diagnosis is a key component to managing the progression of eye disease. That’s why our optometrists offer a Premium Wellness Screening that includes: Retinal Photography, OCT Retinal Scanning, Computer Visual Field and Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD). Learn more about these tests.
We can also diagnose and manage dry eye conditions using advanced technology with our top-of-the-line Keratograph. Learn more about Dry Eye Treatments offered at Forsight Vision.
