Comprehensive Eye Exams
During a comprehensive annual eye exam your visual acuity, refractive status, eye muscle posture, and accommodative status will be checked. This includes an eyeglass prescription. In addition, we pay special attention to your ocular health, including an internal/retinal exam and glaucoma screening
Pediatric Eye Exams
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends an annual comprehensive eye exam starting at age 5. However, children may need a screening at a younger age in cases of eye turns/strabismus, poor visual acuity, or other visual concerns. Dr. Cortes finds it valuable for every child with or without any symptoms of eye strain, fatigue, or poor vision to have a yearly eye exam. A lot of times symptoms of ADHD, or ADD may be attributed to a lack of proper refractive correction.
Diabetic Eye Exams
All diabetics must have a thorough eye exam every 12 months. Retinal complications from diabetes can cause serious, often permanent vision damage if left untreated. Dr. Cortes can generate an exam report, if needed, for primary care physicians or endocrinologists to review.
Glaucoma Eye Screenings
It is imperative for all adults to have an annual screening for glaucoma as part of preventative health care. Glaucoma is an eye disease that is often attributed to high eye pressure. This can be due to genetics, previous eye injury, or other factors. Glaucoma is a ‘silent disease’ in that it has no symptoms- you won’t know if you have it unless you are checked regularly.
