Eye Exams: A Look at Your Future Vision, Today

Your eye health goes beyond your vision. An annual exam allows our doctors to look into the structure of your eyes to ensure your macula, retina, and optic nerve are performing like they should. A yearly examination allows us to check how well you see and what other issues could be forming.

From 6 Months to 12 Decades, Everyone Should Get an Annual Eye Exam

We recommend getting eyes examined every year from the age of 6 months. Children’s eyes are still developing and need special care to safeguard their learning at school. Poor vision impedes reading and comprehension, reducing your child’s performance in the classroom.

As you transition into adulthood, a comprehensive checkup will help you avoid irreversible vision loss from gradual diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. These age-related ocular diseases begin to form with few or no symptoms, so it’s up to advanced screening to catch them in their infancy.

One hour, once a year, ensures a lifetime of eye health.

What To Expect

If you’re going to visit McBride Vision Clinic for the first time, we’ve streamlined our new patient process. Fill out your forms online and take a virtual tour of our office before coming in to see us. This allows us you to get more one-on-one time with our doctors and allows us to spend more time getting to know you and your eye care needs.

For your first appointment, please bring your current glasses and contact lenses with their case.

We’ll do several simple tests to see how your eyes are functioning. We test your field of vision, focus ability, depth perception, and peripheral vision. We do independent eye trials to see how each eye does with and without its partner. From there we can determine if you need any kind of eye correction.

Our clinic is outfitted with the latest optometric equipment. We are proud to offer you the latest eye screening technology like optomap imaging and corneal topography. With retinal scans and imaging we can catch progressive eye diseases early, giving us a chance to correct or minimize the effects of conditions like diabetic retinopathy, hypertension, or retinal detachment.

Yearly Exams For Healthy Eyes

We are inundated with blue light from screens throughout our daily lives. Looking at your computer, watching television, going to the movies, or even using your cell phone can bombard your eyes with this color of light. In fact, blue light is extremely close to ultraviolet light, or UV light. Just as UV rays can give you a sunburn blue light can damage your eyes.

Blue light is made up of a shorter wavelength than most, giving it more energy for deeper eye penetration, and causing it to scatter… all of which makes your eyes work harder to focus. The result is called Computer Vision Syndrome.

CVS can cause blurry vision, eye fatigue, headaches, and neck and shoulder pain. Existing conditions like dry eye or myopia could exacerbate your sensitivity to this digital eye strain. Visit an optometrist in our office for an evaluation and to build a management strategy for CVS

As you age there are several conditions that could affect your long-term eyesight. Cataracts slowly cloud your lens, making it difficult for your eyes to see clearly. Instead, you’ll see distortion, blurring, double vision, and dulled colors. Glaucoma is characterized by a fluid buildup in the optic nerve. Symptoms include halos in your vision, nausea and vomiting, headaches, and sore eyes.

Age related diseases can be managed effectively when they’re detected in their early stages. Treatment can range from prescription lenses to eye drops. To reduce your risk of such disease it’s extremely important to live a healthy life and continue to see your optometrist regularly.

Contact Lenses for All Eyes

Some eye conditions make contact lenses hard to fit, but this shouldn’t rule them out altogether. Some situations that create difficulties for lenses are astigmatism, dry eyes, keratoconus, giant papillary conjunctivitis, or presbyopia. However, these conditions do not preclude you from the ability to wear contacts on a regular basis. We can prescribe you specialty contact lenses suited to your eye needs.

Scleral lenses are larger than traditional lenses, making them easier to use and more comfortable. These are a good option for those who have not qualified for contacts. These lenses offer a lower risk for complications and can be worn with abnormal corneas, irregular eye shape, and dry eyes.

Corneal reshaping is a safe and effective form of vision therapy that works while you sleep! Through the night your eyes are gently reshaped and your vision is clear without the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses.

Book an appointment to discuss your specialty contact lens needs with us.

We have a range of products in our dispensary. Enhance your overall look with the latest in eyewear fashion, we carry the best names in designer frames such as Calvin Klein, Nine West, Kate Spade, and bebe. Prescription sunglasses protect your eyes from damaging UV rays while allowing you to see clearly.
