Comprehensive eye exams should occur early in life to ensure proper eye and vision development. Ongoing eye health examinations at regular intervals are equally important as many eye diseases and vision changes can occur without warning signs.
During a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor will use eye charts to measure the sharpness of your vision. The classic example of an eye chart is the Snellen eye chart, and although there are many variations, in general they show 11 rows of capital letters. You will be asked to find and read the smallest line of text that you can make out. The standard vision acuity is 20/20, which is the fourth line from the bottom. If you can read either of the bottom two rows, your visual acuity is better than most people.
At Creative Eyewear, we believe everyone should get a thorough eye exam, which means checking for color vision deficiencies and testing your eyes to see how they work together. To ensure your eyes are healthy, we recommend seeing an eye doctor for your comprehensive eye exams on a regular basis. This will also get you started down the path of getting the best pair of glasses for your eyes.
