When was your last eye exam? Your eyes are some of the most valuable tools each day, and it is important not to take your eye and vision health for granted. Our Washington DC optometrist and the rest of the staff here at Metropolitan Optical firmly believe in the importance of preventative eye care—mainly, the importance of receiving regular eye exams. Eye exams are such an important part of preventative eye care because they allow our Washington DC optometrist to uncover and diagnose any eye conditions or developing issues even before you aware of any symptoms, in some cases.
During your eye exam here at Metropolitan Optical, our Washington DC optometrist will administer a series of tests in order to: determine your eyeglass prescription or update it if necessary, evaluate your binocular function, assess your eye health and check for common eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal disorders, and also to dilate your pupils as needed. Some tests involved throughout the exam include: a retinal examination, a slit lamp examination, a testing of your visual acuity, corneal topography, and more. The results of all of these assorted tests come together to form an in-depth evaluation of your eye health and visual abilities, allowing our Washington DC optometrist to give you any necessary medical advice or recommend procedures as needed.
These exams are important parts of keeping your eye health and vision in good shape as you grow older, and as your eyes and vision change throughout the different phases of your life.
