Annual eye exams are a recommended cornerstone for ensuring the health of your eyes. In addition to checking for changes in your vision and updating your prescription, your doctor* will also look at your overall eye health, internally and externally.
Prevention and early detection are keys to maintaining healthy eyes, as some eye health issues have no immediate symptoms but can still cause damage if left untreated. That’s why regular check-ups are critical.
Wellness starts with being well-informed
During your eye exam, the Independent Doctor of Optometry* at or next to Pearle Vision may create a personalized Eye Health and Wellness Report to summarize your visit. In addition to noting any problems, conditions or diseases found during your eye exam, your Independent Doctor of Optometry may provide you with a report outlining the next steps you should take. It’s a valuable tool some Independent Doctors of Optometry* offer to help you maintain and improve your eye health and vision.Close

You should never be kept in the dark about the health of your eyes and your vision. Yearly eye exams may last up to an hour or more depending on your individual needs and usually involve a variety of tests to make sure everything is looking great. The experienced eye care team will do everything they can to make the process effortless and eye opening.
Your optometrist may:
- Ask you questions to get to know you, your eyes and your lifestyle better
- Check your overall vision, color vision, depth perception and general eye health
- Look for any indicators of potential vision problems
- Dilate (temporarily enlarge) your pupils to see as much of your eye as possible, if needed
Dilated eyes are more sensitive to sunlight. Bring sunglasses to your eye exam.
- Use an opthalmascope to illuminate and magnify the interior of your eye, a way to detect such conditions as cataracts, diabetes or hypertension
- Perform a visual acuity test (reading letters on the eye chart) – the smaller the letters you can read, the better your visual acuity
- Provide the option to use a digital retinal exam such as Optomap® to gain an incredible 200-degree view of your eye’s retina (the back of the eye). This improved scope aids your optometrist in diagnosis and prevention of various eye conditions and diseases, including macular degeneration, glaucoma and more
