Our Gaithersburg eye exam includes various essential and revealing tests that are designed to determine how good your vision is right now, and also detect the presence of any of the most common eye diseases. Here at Argos Vision and Eye Care Center, our commitment to the overall wellness of your eyes is our top priority.
The vision testing portion of our Gaithersburg eye exam consists of a visual acuity test, in which you will read from an eye chart; along with a refractive assessment. Our optometrist checks several different strength lenses to find out which give you the best corrected vision. If you currently wear eyeglasses or contacts, you should bring them with you. If it turns out that you do need a new or updated prescription for corrective eyewear, you will receive a prescription that our optical department can make for you. Testing for eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal disease in general is key to promoting the highest level ocular well-being possible. You cannot depend on being alerted by symptoms during the early stages of eye disease. They typically form and develop without indications, and by the time you do notice a problem, it usually means that the condition has become advanced and a degree of vision loss or damage to your eyes has occurred, either of which might not be reversible. Tonometry is the vital test used to diagnose glaucoma, while a slit lamp exam is its equivalent for cataracts. And with indirect ophthalmoscopy, retinal diseases can be diagnosed early. In all cases regarding eye disease, the sooner that treatment is started, the better the chances are for positive outcomes. And that’s what our Gaithersburg eye exam makes possible.
