We take pride in the fact that we provide eye exams for our Huntersville, NC patients of all ages.
Regular eye exams are a critical part of protecting the health of your eyes, as well as your vision. If it’s been a while since your last checkup, or if you are looking for a new optometrist in the Huntersville, North Carolina area, come and see us at Vision Center of Lake Norman.
The main purpose of eye exams is to check your vision. If you currently wear glasses or contacts, we will determine if your prescription is still correct during your exam. If adjustments need to be made, we will help you select new contact lenses or glasses.
Even if you don’t use corrective eyewear, it is still essential for you to receive regular eye exams. During the exam process, not only do we check for vision problems, but we also look for the existence of eye-related issues like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.
What Happens During a Standard Eye Exam?
When you visit our office for an eye exam, a few things will happen during your appointment:
- We will perform a visual acuity test to measure the clarity and sharpness of your vision.
- We will conduct a confrontation visual test by asking you to cover each of your eyes to check your peripheral vision.
- We will perform an extraocular movement test to examine the muscles that control your eye movement.
- We will conduct pupillary tests to view how your pupils respond when exposed to light.
Your eye exam is the perfect time to ask Dr. Chuck Monson, our optometrist, any questions you might have about your vision and the health of your eyes. Am I candidate for LASIK? Can I wear contact lenses? Why do my eyes get red? Because we are committed to your satisfaction, Dr. Monson will take the time needed to address your concerns and provide you with effective solutions.
At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we take pride in the fact that we provide eye exams for patients of all ages. If you need to have your eyes checked or one of your children needs to have their vision corrected, give us a call today to set up an appointment with our office.
