Comprehensive eye exams, performed annually by an eye doctor, are an important part of preventative health care, as early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems can help prevent vision loss. During a comprehensive eye exam at Family Eye Wellness, Dr. Patel will evaluate your vision and assess the health of the eye, while also checking for serious ocular conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retinopathy. She will review your medical and ocular history, measure your visual acuities, and perform preliminary tests like retinal imaging, all of which help to evaluate the overall health of your eyes. Dr. Patel will also perform a refraction to provide you with optimum vision. She will not only discuss treatment options, but also methods of prevention so you can develop and maintain the best vision and eye health possible. Along with family history, she will discuss symptoms, lifestyle, diet, exercise routine, and stress management, all of which contribute to your optimum vision and eye health.
