Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have an eye exam?

It is generally recommended to have an eye exam every 1-2 years, depending on your age, health, and risk of developing eye problems. Your ophthalmologist can provide a personalized recommendation based on your specific needs.

Bring your current glasses or contact lenses, a list of any medications you are taking, and any relevant medical records. Also, bring your insurance information and a photo ID.

Coverage for eye exams and treatments varies by insurance plan. Check with your insurance provider for specific details regarding your coverage.

Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the cloudy lens of the eye (cataract) and replace it with an artificial lens to restore clear vision. It is one of the most common and successful surgeries performed.

Glaucoma often has no early symptoms and is sometimes called the “silent thief of sight.” As the disease progresses, symptoms may include loss of peripheral vision, seeing halos around lights, and redness in the eye.

Dry eye syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors including aging, hormonal changes, certain medications, and environmental conditions. It occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly.

Macular degeneration is a condition that affects the central part of the retina (macula) and leads to loss of central vision. It is most common in older adults and can be classified as either dry or wet macular degeneration.

To prevent eye strain, follow the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and look at something 20 feet away. Ensure proper lighting, adjust your screen settings, and consider using artificial tears to keep your eyes moist.

Floaters are small, shadowy shapes that appear in your field of vision. They are usually harmless but can sometimes indicate a more serious condition, such as retinal detachment. If you notice a sudden increase in floaters, contact your ophthalmologist.

Treatments for diabetic retinopathy include laser surgery, intraocular injections of anti-VEGF medications, and vitrectomy. Early detection and management of diabetes are crucial in preventing severe vision loss.

A comprehensive eye exam includes several tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. These tests may include visual acuity testing, pupil dilation, tonometry (to measure eye pressure), and a retinal exam.

Yes, children can and should see an ophthalmologist, especially if they have vision problems or eye conditions. Pediatric ophthalmologists specialize in treating eye conditions in children.

Lazy eye, medically known as amblyopia, is a visual development disorder where one eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity, even with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. This condition usually develops in early childhood and can result from various factors that interfere with proper visual development.
