The American Optometric Association recommends yearly eye exams for adults.
Current lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before given our technological advancements. As a result, many adults stress their visual skills with excessive close work, such as reading and computer use. Overworked visual systems can induce headaches due to poor eye teaming, eye focusing, or eye movement control. These visual dysfunctions can be effectively treated with performance lenses and/or optometric vision therapy.
Adults who suffer brain injury often need optometric vision rehabilitation in order to help restore visual function.
Testing for more than 20/20!
20/20 is NOT perfect vision. It is only the measurement of distance visual acuity. 20/20 just means that the person can clearly see a certain letter on the standard eye chart (equivalent to what a person with normal vision should be able to see at 20 feet). There is so much more to healthy vision than 20/20!
Our in-depth eye exam goes beyond 20/20 to assess many important visual skills, such as:
- Visual Acuity at Near
- Eye Teaming
- Eye Focusing
- Eye Movement Control
