The Importance of Eye Exams
It’s important to take your eye care as seriously as the rest of your health care. During an eye exam, one of our doctors at Michigan Eye Institute will check your vision, eye functionality, and eye health. With Dearborn, Livonia, and Southfield locations, we provide convenient service to many locations. Below are several reasons why eye exams are crucial to your continued eye health.
During an eye exam, our eye doctor will check your vision. Our ophthalmologist will ask you to identify letters on a chart or read something through a lens. This allows us to check to see if you need prescriptive lenses or if your current prescription needs to be changed.
Your eyes need to work together for you to perceive depth. Depth perception aids with many tasks and activities such as parallel parking, needle threading, hockey, baseball, volleyball, and tennis. Most athletes playing with a puck or ball rely on depth perception. During your eye exam, our ophthalmologist will check your ability to see different colors. The doctor will also test how your pupils and eyes react to light.
During an eye exam, our ophthalmologist will evaluate your eyes for the presence of diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, or even high blood pressure, diabetes, or an autoimmune disease. It is better to find out about these unpleasant conditions early. Some eye diseases, such as glaucoma, do not exhibit symptoms early. Early disease detection is critical. You will be able to stop or slow the worsening of diseases once they are detected.
