At Hoosier Family Eyecare, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not. Patients wearing contact lenses must have yearly visits.
ROUTINE VISION EXAM WITH EYE HEALTH ASSESSMENT: This exam is for patients who wear or need glasses or contacts, or anyone who wants their visual acuity tested. A health assessment of the eye anatomy is also performed but this is not a medical visit.
MEDICAL EYE EXAM: Some patients have a medical condition that affects their eyes. Diabetes, glaucoma and cataracts are the more common diseases affecting eye health. Assessment of these conditions may also include visual field acuity testing, in depth testing of the functions and anatomy of the retina, or corneal topography along with other testing needed for the specific eye disease. Communication and referral to other health disciplines will be implemented as needed. (Due to protocols with some insurance companies, some patients will need to be referred to an Ophthalmologist for medical visits).
