Comprehensive Eye Exam, Manitou Springs, CO

Regular comprehensive eye exams are an important part of preventive health care for people of all ages. At Spectrum Eye Care, we are committed to providing the best eye care for the entire family. During a comprehensive eye exam, our expert doctors will thoroughly examine your eye health and vision.

While the tests will vary based on your medical history, most comprehensive eye exams consist of the following:

  • Assessment of visual acuity (the sharpness of your vision) and determining your correct eyeglass prescription
  • Visual field test to determine if you have blind spots or peripheral vision issues
  • Cover test to identify crossed eyes or binocular vision problems
  • Slit lamp exam to detect diseases and conditions affecting the front of the eye
  • Eye pressure measurement to help screen for glaucoma
  • Dilated eye exam to monitor the health of the retina and optic nerve

Using the latest diagnostic technology, we ensure accurate prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses and early detection of eye diseases that may have no early symptoms.

What Are the Benefits of a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

During your eye exam at Spectrum Eye Care near Manitou Springs, CO, you will receive immediate feedback about your eye health. A comprehensive eye exam can detect issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, focusing problems, other vision problems, and eye diseases. Depending on your results, your doctor will prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses if necessary and provide you with helpful information about your vision and eye health.

Comprehensive eye exams are about more than vision correction. Your eyes can be a window into your overall health. Along with eye-related issues, your optometrist can also find signs of other health problems such as hypertension and diabetes.

One of the greatest benefits of comprehensive eye exams is their ability to prevent degenerative eye disorders. Regular maintenance and care are essential for maintaining healthy vision. Eye problems can develop over time if you neglect to get your eyes checked regularly by a qualified optometrist. Diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy may have no symptoms in the early stages. They often develop slowly and without causing any discomfort. If left untreated, these diseases can lead to permanent vision loss and even blindness. Regular eye exams can protect your vision through early diagnosis and treatment.
