We're Dedicated To Keeping Your Eyes Healthy

Great eye care goes deeper than simply checking your prescription for glasses or contact lenses. Our The Woodlands eye care team uses the latest technology to check for eye diseases, evaluate your eyes' ability to work together, and assess your eyes as an indicator of your overall physical health. Our eye doctors are frequently the first healthcare professionals to find evidence of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, as part of a comprehensive eye exam.

Young, old, or somewhere in between, regular comprehensive eye exams can help your vision remain crystal-clear and your eyes stay healthy. Contact Houston Eye Professionals in The Woodlands to book your eye exam today.

A Comprehensive Eye Exam May Just Save Your Vision

Many vision-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, or diabetic retinopathy show little to no noticeable symptoms until significant, often irreversible, damage has already been done. This is why regular comprehensive eye exams are so essential to your long-term vision and eye health.

During these exams, your eye doctor will be looking for initial signs of these diseases. Early detection and treatment are key factors in halting or slowing down disease progression and saving eyesight.

Eye Exams for Children & Young Adults

Undetected vision problems can cause a lot of friction in a child's life, both in school and at home. An estimated 80% of all learning relies on our vision, which is why the longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater your child’s disadvantage becomes. Having regular eye exams offers the best opportunity to correct vision issues as quickly as possible and help your child succeed.

How Often Do Kids Need to Have Eye Exams?

Our eye doctors in The Woodlands recommend your child has their first eye exam at 6 months of age. If we don't find any issues with their vision, they should return for another exam at 3 years old and again at the start of school. Your child should then continue to have their eyes examined at least once per year throughout school.

Children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently. Common risk factors for vision problems include:

  • premature birth
  • developmental delays
  • turned or crossed eyes
  • the family history of eye disease
  • history of eye injury
  • other physical illness or disease

What Happens During An Eye Exam?

During an eye exam at Houston Eye Professionals in The Woodlands, Texas, we will check your vision thoroughly to see if glasses or contacts are right for you. If you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses already, your visual acuity will be assessed both with and without your corrective lenses to see if we need to adjust your prescription.

We'll ask you to read letters off a chart to test your visual acuity, and use a phoropter to check carefully for astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. This procedure involves having you look through a series of lenses, and you'll need to give feedback on which ones give the clearest vision. With the aid of a retinoscope, we'll measure how light focuses on your retina with each of the different lenses.

We'll also check your eyes for any signs of eye disease so that we can catch any possible conditions early enough to prevent vision loss.

Vision Exams For Those Over 40

Just like the rest of our bodies, our eyes begin to weaken as we age. There are a number of common age-related eye conditions such as presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration that can begin to affect your vision and your daily life. While some of these conditions are more of an inconvenience, others could lead to vision loss and dependency.

In addition to regular yearly eye exams, it is important to be aware of any changes in your eye health and vision. Also know your potential risk factors as well as your family ocular and medical history. Over half of the vision loss worldwide is preventable with proper treatment and care.
