Eye Exam in Virginia Beach

Our eye exam in Virginia Beach is thorough. Our optometrist will both check your vision and also screen you for the most common eye diseases. And since most of those eye diseases do not have any symptoms associated with them in their early stages, it's important to schedule an eye exam here at Breedlove Eye Center every year. When you do so, you are taking control of your eye health and making certain that you are seeing the best that you're capable of.

Even if you already wear corrective lenses, you should still have our eye exam in Virginia Beach annually. Your vision can and does change over time. The prescription that used to be ideal for you might need to be updated in order to give you the sharpest and clearest vision possible. And if you've never worn eyeglasses or contact lenses before, this could be the perfect time for you to start benefitting from them. This is particularly true if you find yourself squinting or struggling to see either up close or at a distance. And we can fill your new or updated prescription right here, for your convenience.

When it comes to eye diseases, two that are universal, in the sense that they can affect anyone, regardless of age, medical history, or heredity, are glaucoma and cataracts. Our eye exam in Virginia Beach includes tests like tonometry, which measures your internal eye pressure to check for glaucoma; and a slit lamp exam for detecting cataracts. Of course, other tests may be needed to form a definite diagnosis. If you have type one or type two diabetes, you will also be tested for diabetic retinopathy. And those over 40 will be screened for macular degeneration.

Our eye exam in Virginia Beach includes our optometrist checking your eye muscles, eyelids, and other key parts of your eyes, as well. In fact, problems not directly linked to your eyes can still be detected from an eye exam. Among them are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, for which the blood vessels in your eyes can reveal valuable clues. If any indications of such are found, you will be referred back to your primary physician for follow-up.
