The Importance of Comprehensive Yearly
Eye Exams "To see clearly, check yearly"
Eye care starts with comprehensive yearly eye examinations.
A complete dilated eye examination can detect eye disease
that you may not even be aware of. Eye care is an essential
part of preventative health care. It is best to find the
problem before you are fully affected by it. Losing our
vision is one of our greatest fears, yet many of us take
our eyes for granted. Too often, we see patients that
have waited too long to come in, and tragically, in many
cases, it can be too late to help. With eye disease, you
have to catch the problem, before you lose it. Luckily,
with routine examinations, we can diagnose, and treat,
many eye diseases and if necessary, refer you to the best
specialists in the area.
every comprehensive eye exam we perform at the Eye Site
of Bluffton, there is no extra charge for dilation,
and we will not only check your vision for needing glasses,
but we will also look deeper and thoroughly check the
total health of your eyes. We will check your eyes for
any signs of cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease,
high blood pressure issues, macular degeneration, retinal
detachments, and hundreds of other eye conditions. We
offer retinal photography with our comprehensive exams.
We highly recommend retinal photos as it can be physical
documentation for the health of your eyes and offer
a baseline. Retinal photography is also a great educational
tool so you can see what we see when we look into your

Your eyeglasses are perhaps one of the most practical,
stylish, yet functional purchases that you will make.
After all, your glasses are your "Eye-Dentity",

of the year? So make a statement while making sure you
are getting the best and clearest vision possible available.

most important eye exam in your child's life is their
first, and every child should have their eyes checked
by an Optometrist before the age of five. Most doctors
agree that your child should have a comprehensive eye
exam by the age of five or before they start kindergarten.
Of course, if you notice an eye turn or something drastically
wrong, please bring them in sooner. Why is it so important
to catch a visual problem early? Of the five senses
we have, vision is the first to develop to an adult-like
level, and it does so by the age of twelve. If a problem
exists in one or both eyes, and it is not caught in
the first twelve years of a child's life, amblyopia
or "lazy eye" may develop. This may cause
your child to have reduced vision in that eye for the
rest of their life! After all, you want your child to
succeed in school, and in life. To give them this chance,
give them the clearest vision possible when it is needed
the most. Make sure that their vision hasn't been overlooked.
A school screening may pick up on some refractive errors,
but they do nothing to assess the health of the eye.
We have seen many children that have passed a school
screening, yet still have a very serious visual problem.
Bring them in for a proper, comprehensive dilated eye
exam with an Optometrist.
Our comprehensive children's exam evaluates the following:
tracking ability (reading movements)
to use both eyes together (3D vision and depth
for glasses or contacts
eye health problems
and far focusing abilities
of the two eyes -(amblyopia, lazy eye)
