Austin Eye Exams
The Importance of Comprehensive Eye Exams
Having your eyes examined annually is one of the most responsible things you can do for your health! At Look + See Vision Care in Austin, we do more than just determine your prescription for glasses and contacts. We also thoroughly examine the eye for common eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, keratoconus, and dry eyes. Early detection of these eye diseases is imperative for sustaining eye health and your overall well-being.
We will assess how your eyes work together as a team, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator for your overall health. With the aid of advanced instrumentation, many eye related diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be diagnosed and treated before having any impact on your vision.
Comfortable Eye Exams – Without The Puff
We have found that some patients coming in for their first eye exam at Look + See Vision Care are nervous about getting an eye exam because of the “air puff” test they have had at other optometry offices. We are proud to say that we do not use this technology in our office as we are are fortunate to have technology for monitoring eye pressure that is not only more comfortable than the “air puff,” but is also more accurate. We have invested in the I-Care tonometer, an instrument developed in Finland that can measure your eye pressure (which is related to a few eye diseases such as glaucoma) – all without having the puff!
Bringing You Quality Eye Care
While some bargain eye care providers may only be interested in volume and getting the next patient in the chair, we put quality above all else. We want to make sure your vision is clear and your eyes are healthy. That’s why we reserve plenty of time for your eye exam, so while you should expect your exam to take just about half an hour – there is plenty of time for any questions or concerns you may have during and after your eye exam. Our Austin optometrist & eye doctor and staff at Look + See Vision Care look forward to getting to know you! For more information, please contact our Austin office at (512) 774-6002.
