At SAGER EYE CARE CENTER, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. When eye and vision problems are found early, optometrists can provide treatment options and, in many cases, restore vision or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly vision exams.
Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, Dr. Jeffrey Sager or Dr. Candice Mansito will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed. The doctor will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. The doctors at SAGER EYE CARE CENTER provide regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Jeffrey Sager or Dr. Candice Mansito will measure how well each eye is seeing by using an eye chart. The results of these tests are represented by a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, the doctor may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Our doctors perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving and working together properly. The test results enable Drs. Sager and Mansito to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eye's ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our doctors examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Drs. Sager and Mansito evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, your doctor will dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, the doctors review the results and discuss any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (954) 476-7631 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
