At the end of a comprehensive eye exam, you’ll know more about your visual and ocular health. The team makes highly customized recommendations according to their findings, and always takes your preferences and input into account.

Why do I need eye dilation in an eye exam?

Eye dilation opens your pupils so the optometry team can see the back of your eye. This is important to check for the early signs of eye disease, such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and glaucoma. 

In some cases, an optometrist is the first care provider to observe signs of high blood pressure or diabetes because these conditions may affect the eyes in their early stages. This gives you the early warning you need to take control of your health now and may allow you to prevent serious diseases in some cases. 

How often do I need an eye exam?

The American Optometric Association advises comprehensive eye exams every 1-2 years, depending on your provider’s recommendations and your specific health needs. 

Most patients at Eye Innovations schedule annual eye exams because these exams are such an effective way to stay ahead of potential eye problems. If you have an eye disease like glaucoma, cataracts, or diabetic retinopathy, the team may recommend more frequent exams.
