The doctor will review your history of eye health as well as your family history, determine your visual acuities, check your intraocular pressure and examine the response of your pupils to light. Our doctors will also dilate your eyes to examine the posterior structures of your eye and if necessary perform a variety of specialized tests.
The doctor will put a drop in your eyes to make the pupils larger; this will allow the doctor to see the back of the eye, including the retina and optic nerve. The doctor will be able to look for signs of damage including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Your vision may remain blurry for a few hours but will return to normal. For patients with higher prescriptions, we suggest that you bring someone with you to your exam to drive you home after your dilation.
We offer a comprehensive eye exam package that will include your glasses and/or contact lens prescription, dilation to check your overall eye health and a pair of contacts (if you have the contact lens exam). Please contact our office for prices or see our insurance page for more information.
An ophthalmologist is a medically and surgically trained physician (MD) who specializes in comprehensive eye care. Ophthalmologists can examine, diagnose and treat eye disorders and perform intricate eye surgery. Most ophthalmologists have had additional training in a subspecialty.
Optometrists have a doctor of optometry degree (OD). They're skilled professionals who also examine, diagnose and prescribe treatment for common eye disorders or refer to the appropriate specialist. They also prescribe eyeglasses, contacts and other optical wear, such as low-vision devices.
Opticians are trained or licensed to fill eyewear prescriptions and help fit patients into glasses and contacts.
Our doctors suggest scheduling regular eye exams every year, unless otherwise directed, because many eye disorders exhibit no warning symptoms though they can be treatable when discovered early. Certain ethnicities are at higher risk for developing glaucoma. Diabetic patients are at a higher risk for vision loss.
Blue light emitted from hand held devices and computer monitors is shown to increase the risk of Age Related Macular Degeneration, eye fatigue and eye strain. New Blue Blocker/Recharge lenses reduce potential harming light from today's blue light emitting devices.
If you receive an eye injury, seek immediate medical attention. If our office is not open, call Panhandle Eye Group at (806) 331-4444 or your primary care physician to reduce the risk of permanent damage.
Studies have shown that diets rich in dark-green leafy vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes and broccoli lower the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration. Many multi-vitamins can help prevent vision loss. Ask your doctor at your next eye exam what is best for your eye health.
