What to Expect When You Visit an Optometrist

optometrist When you begin experiencing vision issue,  you may be concerned that you need a professional who can help you determine the next course of action. It is important that you choose an optometrist to determine what to do, whether your vision is changing normally or you experience an unexpected change. But what exactly does an optometrist do? Here are a few things you can expect when you visit an optometrist for the first time: 

  • Examine Eyes – The first step when you visit an optometrist is an eye examination. These basic tests check your overall vision and also for health problems that may be affecting your eyes. In order to determine what steps should be taken next, this exam is essential.
  • Correct Refractive Errors – Your optometrist may determine that you simply need spectacles or contact lenses to correct your vision and can provide solutions to ensure you are seeing well for the future.
  • Low Vision Care & Vision Therapy – Additionally, if your vision issues are related to a health problem or you are experiencing something unexpected, your optometrist can provide vision care and address your needs for vision therapy to help you get the best results.

 Even if you do not typically have vision issues, it is important to have your eyes checked by an optometrist at least once a year.
