A lot of people make the mistaken assumption that eye and vision exams are only needed when you're experiencing symptoms of an eye problem or have noticed a change in your eyesight. However, this simply isn't true. Everybody should have an eye and vision exam at least once a year because these exams are vital to spotting changes in your eye health that could indicate an underlying problem or medical condition.
Furthermore, eye exams allow our optometry team to make sure your corrective vision prescription is up-to-date. Even if you haven't noticed any obvious changes in your eyesight or ocular health, or optometry professionals may be able to.
If it's been awhile since your last eye and vision exam, you might be wondering what you can expect from your first appointment with Vision Professionals of Leawood. We'll always begin with a consultation, which gives our eye doctor a chance to better get to know you as well as your lifestyle. This also gives you an opportunity to bring up any questions or concerns you'd like to have addressed during your appointment.
Next, we'll move onto your comprehensive eye and vision exam. This portion of your appointment includes a series of tests, including standard vision testing, eye function testing, and an overall assessment of your ocular health. If needed, we can also order additional diagnostic testing during your appointment or at a later time. We'll always carefully review our findings with you and help you make informed decisions about your eye health.
