Screening and Diagnosis for Vision Loss
Comprehensive Eye Evaluation
What is a Comprehensive Eye Evaluation?
The American Optometric Association states that periodic eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms, so you might not know a problem exists. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems can help prevent vision loss.
Each patient's signs and symptoms, along with your optometrist's professional judgment, will determine what tests your optometrist conducts.
