Eye Exam Q & A

Why should I have an eye exam?

The American Optometric Association recommends that all adults have a comprehensive eye exam every 1-2 years. If you have an eye condition that requires monitoring, Dr. Weissman will usually recommend that you come in for more frequent eye exams.

Regular eye exams allow Dr. Weissman to identify any new conditions or concerns and ensure that your vision correction prescription is up to date.

Some conditions like glaucoma don’t cause noticeable symptoms in the early stages. However, an ophthalmologist can detect them during your eye exam. Dr. Weissman does complete eye exams using the most advanced technology available.

Which conditions can an eye exam diagnose?

Your complete eye exam helps Dr. Weissman identify and treat the following conditions:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism
  • Glaucoma
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Computer eye strain
  • Blepharitis
  • Detached retina
  • Corneal disease

Dr. Weissman also uses a comprehensive eye exam to decide if refractive eye surgery is for you. He has extensive experience treating all types of eye conditions. Treatments range from eye drops to oral medications, minimally invasive procedures to eye surgery.

What happens during an eye exam?

Dr. Weissman checks every aspect of your vision and eye health. Be sure to bring your glasses, contacts, and prescription sunglasses with you to your eye exam.

During your eye exam, Dr. Weissman reviews your medical history and asks you questions about your vision. Along with his team of experts, Dr. Weissman conducts several tests, including:

  • Visual acuity test
  • Pupil dilation test
  • Visual field test
  • Color blindness test
  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Retinal photography

After completing these diagnostics, Dr. Weissman physically examines your eyes. He then does a refraction test to determine if you need vision correction. This involves looking through a machine equipped with a series of lenses, and comparing their effects on your vision while reading an eye chart.

If you need glasses or contact lenses, Dr. Weissman offers an on-site optical store with a selection of high-quality eyeglass frames. He can also fit you for contact lenses, offering you daily, extended wear, and disposable soft contacts.
