Eye tests and vision exams are an important part of optical health. At Eye Express we perform comprehensive tests for early diagnosis of eye conditions and to check for symptoms of eye diseases. Our Port Morris eye care doctor can perform a comprehensive exam to test for these eye diseases and to catch them early, because many eye conditions show no signs or symptoms during the early stages. Routine eye exams should happen once every year or every other year in order to make sure each patient’s optical prescription is up to date.
We also perform dilation if necessary and automated visual field screenings. Our dilated eye exam can help detect diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Our contact lens exam is designed to fit patients and we offer hard or soft contact lenses. Thanks to advances in the optical field almost everyone is now a candidate for contacts, including those with astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. Our contact lenses come in a wide variety of brands and types to suit everyone’s needs, such as hard and soft lenses. Soft lenses are the most commonly prescribed due to their comfort level, while hard contact lenses, better known as gas-permeable or GP lenses, offer sharper vision. Having your prescription updated and glasses fitted properly is very important for proper vision and Port Morris eye care. Signs that your prescription may be out of date can range from headaches to blurry vision.
Our eye exam also includes refraction for contact lenses and a complete eyeglass fitting. Our full service optical department and professional eyewear consultants are trained to help you choose the right frames for you. We offer designer frames as well as budget frames and contact lenses for disposable and extended wear. Coming in each year for an exam is the best way to ensure that your vision stays sharp and your eyes stay healthy.
