Our vision is one of our biggest assets, even in circumstances where we don't see our best with our own eyes. But with a highly qualified and award-winning optometrist, Dr. Christine Leska heading our team at Kasson Eye Care there is no reason to sacrifice vision. In fact, even those with no history of eye health or vision problems can benefit from getting a regular eye and vision exams just for the peace of mind that they are truly seeing their best, and catch potential eye conditions early, before they cause too much damage.
Types of Exams Available
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams that review a patient's history and analyzes eye health by testing for signs of eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts, and may detect signs of other health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.
Eye Exams for Children
Taking care of eye health starts early, and babies as young as six months can benefit from an eye exam to assure that their eyes are developing properly. With children especially, vision testing is about more than seeing clearly. Pediatric eye exams also test eye teaming skills and look for signs of crossed eyes or lazy eye. If issues are found, children can begin vision therapy to correct these issues before they have a major effect on learning.
Contact Lens Exams
Contact lens exams need to go a bit further than comprehensive eye exams since contacts fit directly on the eye and different measurements are needed in order to get a proper fit. The proper type of contacts needs to be prescribed as well, and our optometrist, Dr. Leska takes many factors into account before deciding what types of contacts to use.
Pre and Post-Operative Exams for LASIK and Other Vision Correction Surgery
Spending years or even decades wearing glasses or contacts can be trying for a lot of people. Many have dreamed of being able to wake up in the morning, open their eyes and see. LASIK and other corrective surgery have made this possible for many people, but it is still important that an optometrist verifies that you are a good candidate for surgery and that you get the proper care after an operation in case of any complications that may arise. Most of the time complications are minor if they exist at all, but staying under an optometrist's care is still a wise move.
