An Eye Exam that Shows You More
During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription, but will check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. Our eye doctors recommend a comprehensive eye exam every 1-2 years, depending on age, risk factors, and physical condition. Those over the age of 60 should receive annual exams, due to the increased risk of eye disease with age.
At Alpine Vision Center, your exam includes a number of tests and procedures to determine your eye health and vision quality. They range from simple tests, such as reading an eye chart, to advanced, state-of-the-art tests, like using a high-powered lens to evaluate eye tissue health. Our team stays on the cutting edge of technology and education to give you the latest in eye care.
Early Detection is Crucial
Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others often have no outward signs or symptoms in early stages, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are so important to protect vision. Alpine Vision Centers detect signs of vision threatening disease earlier with a new breakthrough technology called Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT). As the most important development in eye care in the last decade, this advanced technology can help detect potential vision threatening diseases in their early stages when they are most treatable. Like an MRI of the eye, but totally painless and taking only seconds to perform, the iWellness Exam™ provides high definition cross sections of your retina which can reveal ocular anatomy and signs of disease in exquisite and stunning detail. The iWellness Exam™ technology allows your doctor to see with unprecedented clarity what is invisible with traditional examination methods.
