Medical Eye Exam
What is the difference between a routine eye exam and a medical eye exam?
Routine eye exams are performed on a regular basis to assess overall eye health and vision every one to three years in adults and children. These exams ensure patients are seeing clearly and do not have special vision needs or other issues that need to be further evaluated or treated. Routine eye exams are akin to the routine annual physical exams performed by family doctors and used to assess the general health of the rest of the body. A medical eye exam is used to evaluate eye diseases and vision disorders, including assessing existing and previously-diagnosed issues, and determining if an undiagnosed issue is present based on the specific symptoms of the patient.
