Medical Eye Exams
If you’ve never had a medical eye exam, you may not know what they are. So, how do you know if you may need one?
Medical eye exams are performed in cases where a patient has a medical condition that affects their eyes as a primary symptom of the disease or disorder.
Medical eye exams provide insight on the progression of eye-related conditions and are valuable tools to maintain good eye health.
Examples of diagnoses that may elicit a medical eye exam include:
Dry eye disease
Acute conditions like conjunctivitis, retinal holes/tears/detachments, and/or infections of the eye.
If you’ve been diagnosed with any of these conditions or have visited other specialists for your eye-related concerns but have not found answers, a medical eye exam may be recommended by your Doctor.
Sometimes, a person may schedule a routine exam but the visit becomes a medical exam due to the Doctor’s findings. If this happens, don’t fret- we are here to help you understand what this means, what your Doctor recommends for treatment, and what kind of visits you will need in the future.
The Optometrists at Spectrum Optical provide a wide array of eye care services, including routine eye exams, medical eye exams, and contact lens evaluations.
