Comprehensive Exam

Comprehensive Eye examinations at Primary Eyecare Professionals are recommended every year. The eye exam includes and is not limited to the following:

 

  • Patient History

  • Visual Acuity

  • Preliminary Testing

  • Refraction

  • Fundus Photography

  • OCT, Macular Cube and Optic Nerve

  • Ocular Motility, Accommodation and Binocular Vision

  • Ocular Health Assessment and Systemic Health Screening

  • Supplemental Testing

  • Diagnosis and Management

 

The prevalence of common eye problems and disorders strongly supports the need for yearly eye examinations. More than half of the US population (approximately 55%) utilizes corrective lenses and 10% of this population wears contacts. Over the age of 52, the prevalence of Presbyopia, the natural, age related loss of focusing ability is essentially 100%. Close to 80% of the population will either develop nearsightedness or astigmatism during their lifetime. Considering the strong reliance upon our sense of sight it is strongly recommended to provide your eyes the care they demand with yearly eye examinations.

 
Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Disease

 

Optometrists at Primary Eyecare Professionals are licensed by the State of Illinois to treat and diagnose diseases of the eye. The risk of developing conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration increases with age. With annual eye examinations, these conditions can be detected early in life and treated or managed during premature stages to help reduce the risk of vision loss. Systemic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be identified with routine eyecare. With an aging population, 1 in 5 Americans is over 55, annual eye examinations along with appropriate systemic health care will ensure a long and healthy life.Children's Eye ExaminationVision disorders are one of the most common disabilities in the country and the most handicapping disorder for children. Furthermore, less than 35% of children between the ages of 6 and 16 have had an eye and vision examination within the last year. It is recommended that your child have an eye exam at 6 months, 2 years, and before they enter kindergarten. Children will often display unique traits (squinting, poor eye-hand coordination, headaches, etc.) before verbally expressing troubles with their vision. Vision problems are not always the cause of learning disorders, but they can challenge a child to perform at their true potential. The doctors at Primary Eyecare Professionals are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric eye conditions that may affect your child's learning and developmental abilities.

 

Carl Zeiss Cirrus HD OCT 5000

In September 2015, we added a new diagnostic test as part of the comprehensive exam that we provide to our patients. The Cirrus HD OCT gathers 67 million data points from your eyes in effort to help us detect Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and other degenerative eye diseases in their early stages before their effects disrupt your vision. The OCT is also used to monitor existing disease, and to track its progression.  Please feel free to ask your doctor any additional questions you may have regarding this state-of-the-art diagnostic testing.
