What are Comprehensive Eye Exams?
Comprehensive vision exams are essential for men, women, and children in Greater Nashville, TN and surrounding areas. Even if you or a loved one haven't noticed any vision or eye problems, we still recommend everyone in your family have routine comprehensive eye exams every two years. We often suggest that children begin having eye exams around age six months. For those that wear contacts or glasses, it's important to bring these items with you to your comprehensive vision exam so we can assess them. At Family Vision Care of Cool Springs in Franklin, TN, we perform a variety of tests during this exam to check for serious diseases, like glaucoma. To schedule a comprehensive eye exam for your entire family, contact our team today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Daxx Dunn, Dr. Marla Weldon, Dr. Kelly Short, or another one of our team members.
Comprehensive Vision Reviews
"This group of medical professionals offer a friendly atmosphere incorporated with a high degree of professionalism. I have been a patient of Dr. Dunn's for years, and with unusual eye conditions, I feel so thankful that he is my doctor, offering expansive knowledge in this field. My daughter also uses this clinic. As a child with severe headaches, we had seen many specialists, none of whom were able to help her. When she went to this clinic, they determined during a routine eye exam the condition she had, and finally after almost 20 years have been able to rectify the situation. The professionalism, knowledge, care, and compassion for their patients is superb."- S.C. / Google / Apr 14, 2021
What Can I Expect During a Comprehensive Eye Exam?
Generally speaking, our eye exams take around an hour. Our team will start with an acuity test for vision. This will help us figure out what your prescription is. We will also complete one or more of the following:
- Visual field test
- Glaucoma test with dilated eyes
- Macular degeneration test
- Crossed eye (strabismus) and lazy eye (amblyopia) test
- Color test
- Diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration
- A review of your internal and external eye, including the upper/lower lids, conjunctiva, cornea, iris, and lenses
There is a chance you may need your eyes dilated. This helps us better test for ocular issues, such as glaucoma. Depending on your results, we will create a treatment plan to help treat our findings.
