Comprehensive Eye Exams
Eye Care Center performs comprehensive eye examinations on patients of all ages. We tailor examinations for the age and the specific needs of the patient. We believe that comprehensive eye examinations are an important part of the health care process, communicating with other health care providers as needed to give patients a team approach to their health.
An eye examination can reveal signs of many systemic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, multiple sclerosis, cancer, brain tumors and general inflammation like rheumatoid arthritis. That is why we believe routine eye examinations are an important part of general health care.
Comprehensive eye examinations are much more than just getting a glasses prescription. The doctors thoroughly examine the front and back part of the eye for any eye or systemic diseases and also screen for glaucoma. In fact, determining a glasses prescription is a separate procedure from an eye examination and is called a refraction. Many times the doctors will perform a refraction at the same time as a comprehensive eye examination, depending on the needs of the patient.
Our eye doctor in Athens strive to personalize the examination based on the needs of the patient, leaving plenty of time for any questions or concerns you may have.

It is important to understand that 20/20 vision is not always achievable through the use of lenses. There are many diseases and conditions of the eye that might prevent clear vision with glasses. During the course of an examination your optometrist in Athens, GA may look for some of these problems to explain your decreased vision.
