Eye Exams

Your eyesight is precious. So it’s important to see an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye exam as recommended. At the office of IC Laser Eye Care, we provide a complete range of services to protect the continued the health of your eyes and help you enjoy clear, crisp vision.

In childhood, good eyesight is essential to a child’s physical, educational and social development. Because vision is not yet fully developed in babies or young children, equal input from both eyes is essential to ensure optimal visual function. The good news is that with early detection and appropriate care, many childhood eye conditions can be effectively treated or corrected. This is why the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus recommend babies and growing children have their vision periodically screened and have more comprehensive eye examinations as indicated.

With routine eye care, adults can also enjoy good vision through the years. As many eye diseases are associated with the aging process, it’s recommended that middle- aged adults have a baseline eye examination around the age of 40. This is a time when vision changes or developing eye conditions typically start to appear. Remember, it’s essential to detect and treat eye diseases early in their onset. Timely treatment remains the best way to preserve your vision. For seniors or patients who have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of eye disease, eye exams and routine vision care are extremely important. These exams are especially important with the presence of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, or glaucoma.

You can rest assured that your eye health and vision are in the best of hands at our office. A comprehensive eye exam is simple and comfortable procedure that typically doesn’t take more than an hour to an hour and a half. Your visit will include a review of your medical history and a discussion of any visual changes you may have noticed since your last visit. We’ll also assess your visual acuity, your current prescription for corrective lenses, your pupils, peripheral vision, eye movement and eye pressure as well as examine the the front of the eye, the retina and the optic nerve.

At the office of IC Laser Eye Care, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
