During your comprehensive eye examination, Dr. Kinney will check the health of your eyes and evaluate how clearly you can see. This includes an assessment/update of your eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions.
In addition to these standard tests, she will evaluate your eyes and vision skills to determine how your visual system is affecting your individual performance and overall quality of life.
Vision Exams for Children
The American Optometric Association recommends that pre-school children receive a complete vision exam at the ages of six months, three years, and five years. It is particularly important that a child have a complete evaluation in the summer prior to entry into kindergarten. Yearly evaluations are recommended while in school.
Vision Exams for Adults
The American Optometric Association recommends a yearly eye exam for adults — not only to detect and to diagnose vision changes or problems— but also to maintain eye health. For example, glaucoma, a disease caused by increased pressure in the eye, commonly goes unnoticed by adults. Regular vision examinations are also important for the prevention of vision problems created or aggravated by today’s academic and professional demands.
Twenty-first century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before. Adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and at home. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is one of the fastest growing health concerns in the workplace today. Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can sometimes induce headaches and/or visual difficulties that can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or vision therapy.
