Comprehensive Eye Care Q&A
What is comprehensive eye care?
Comprehensive eye care involves the diagnosis, treatment, and preventive care of your eyes. Even if your vision is clear, and you don’t have any symptoms associated with eye conditions, you should get a comprehensive eye and vision exam regularly. Dr. Leventhal can identify early signs of diseases and complications that could cost you your vision if you go for too long without treatment.
Comprehensive eye care visits also include vision exams. Dr. Leventhal can adjust your prescription if your old glasses or contact lenses aren’t as effective in giving you clear vision as when you first got them. At each visit to Berkeley Heights Eye Group, you should report any changes in your vision since your last visit.
What does a comprehensive eye exam include?
When you come to Berkeley Heights Eye Group for comprehensive eye care, there are a few procedures to expect during your exam. You’ll start with a discussion about your current vision, any symptoms you have, and a history of your general health and eye health. You should also discuss your lifestyle and any factors that might impact your vision or eye health.
The next step of your comprehensive eye exam is a test of your visual acuity. This part of the assessment helps Dr. Leventhal decide if you need a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses. You should wear your current glasses or contact lenses during the test. After your vision test, the exam consists of:
- Preliminary tests—depth perception, peripheral vision, color vision
- Keratometry—measuring the curve of your eyes
- Refraction—checking for refractive errors
- Eye focusing and movement testing
- Eye health and pressure evaluation
Using these tests, Dr. Leventhal determines if you have any conditions affecting your eye health. He might recommend further testing if the results of these tests are inconclusive.
Which treatments and services are available?
In addition to comprehensive eye exams, Dr. Leventhal offers several treatments and services at Berkeley Heights Eye Group to evaluate and improve your eye health. Beyond the initial vision and eye exam, your diagnosis and treatment might include:
- Cataract surgery (with or without specialty lens implants)
- Lasik surgery
- Laser surgery for glaucoma
- Laser surgery for wet macular degeneration
- Medications or medicated eye drops
- Contact lenses
Dr. Leventhal works closely with you to develop an effective treatment plan that’s easy for you to follow. He helps you understand how each diagnostic service or treatment will help improve your health.
