Eye and Vision Exams from Our Optometrist in Chico, CA
Eye and vision exams are essential for maintaining good eye health. At Family Eye Care, we recommend patients have an eye exam at least once a year. Our optometrist will check your vision and eye health and detect potential problems early. Below is everything you need to know about our eye and vision exams in Chico, CA.
When to Get Eye and Vision Exams
A few factors can affect how often you should get an eye and vision exam. Age is one of the biggest factors, as children and seniors are more likely to need more frequent exams. Other factors that can affect the frequency of your exams include your family history, any existing medical conditions, and whether you have had any recent changes in your vision. Typically, however, we recommend patients have an eye exam at least once a year.
What to Expect during Eye and Vision Exams
Eye and vision exams typically last about 30 minutes. Our optometrist will ask you about your medical history and vision problems during the exam. Then, we will conduct a series of tests to check your vision and eye health. These tests may include checking visual acuity, testing peripheral vision, and assessing eye muscle function. In addition, we may dilate your eyes to get a better view of the back of your eye.
