General Ophthalmology Q & A

Eye Physicians Of Austin

What is included in an eye exam?

During a routine eye exam, the ophthalmologist carefully examines all aspects of the eye. The health of the eye, as well as, the quality of a person's vision, is checked. The doctor will perform several tests to determine if glaucoma, macular degeneration, or cataracts are present at any stage. The doctor will take specific measurements and also check the person's vision at several distances to determine if prescription glasses or any type of corrective lenses are needed. If corrective lenses are recommended, the doctor will set up an appointment to have the glasses or contacts fitted. If other health concerns are found, treatment options will be discussed.

How is the Marco EPIC system used?

The Marco EPIC system is used in conjunction with the 3-D Wave. Both elements work together to create a highly-advanced system that uses both infrared and computer technology to analyze and evaluate each person's visual acuity. The system is fully automated, making it much more accurate and efficient than other methods used in the past. It's completely patient-friendly, allowing the doctor to perform the exam without having the patient leave their chair or experience any discomfort. The 3-D Wave is used to perform various types of screenings and allows the doctor to get a complete picture of the patient's optic health.

How often should a person have their eyes checked?

Most ophthalmologists recommend patients have their eyes examined once a year. This will help uncover conditions, such as glaucoma and cataracts in their earliest, most easily treated stages. A yearly eye exam also helps a patient maintain the proper prescription that allows for their best vision. As a person ages, their vision constantly changes. Regular visits to the ophthalmologist will help prevent vision loss due to poor eye health.
