Comprehensive Eye Exams Ventura Blvd
Regular eye exams are critical, no matter your age or health status. During your comprehensive eye exam, your Studio City optometrist will determine your eyeglasses or contact lens prescription, screen for common eye conditions, evaluate your eye coordination, and assess your eye health as a reflection of your general well-being.
At Attitude Optometry, we use the most advanced technology to ensure the most accurate and comprehensive eye exams for our patients.
One of the key tools we use is Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), a non-invasive imaging test that offers highly detailed images of the layers of the retina. This allows us to detect even the smallest changes in your eye health and diagnose and monitor a range of eye conditions.
Eye Care for Everyone
A thorough eye exam includes several tests used to evaluate your eyes and vision. The tests range from basic, such as reading an eye chart, to advanced, like using a powerful lens to inspect the inner eye tissues. Eye doctors recommend having an annual eye exam to evaluate the likelihood of eye diseases and monitor any changes in your vision, regardless of whether you currently wear glasses or contacts.
Regular eye exams are essential for detecting and treating a variety of eye diseases, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. For people with health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure that can affect vision, we recommend more frequent eye exams to ensure that you preserve your vision health. We also recommended annual exams for those over 40 to check for age-related eye problems.
Eye Exams for Children
Good vision is important for a child's development and detecting and treating vision problems early can prevent long-term vision issues.
Our optometrists recommend that children have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by additional exams at three years old and before starting first grade. This is crucial because the brain is still forming and is easily malleable. Making sure your child has good eyesight will also set them up for success in the classroom and on the playground.
Children with vision problems should see an optometrist more often, as well as children with the following risk factors: family history of eye diseases, premature, developmental issues, disease that impacts vision, and binocular disorders.
The AOA recommends that children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months or according to their optometrist’s instructions.
Contact Lens Exam
Contact lenses offer convenience and flexibility, but they also require proper fitting and care to avoid discomfort or injury to the eyes.
During a contact lens exam, you can expect our optometrist to test your visual acuity, determine your lens prescription, and assess the fit and condition of the lenses. She’ll also evaluate the health of your eyes and screen for underlying conditions that could impact your contact lens use.
Additionally, you’ll learn how to insert, remove and store your contacts. You’ll also get a sample pair to test out at home.
