Comprehensive eye exams are carried out by optometrists or ophthalmologists which include a vision screening and some tests to evaluate your eye health. During an exam, each eye is examined for signs of serious eye issues such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and detached retinas, among other conditions. Regular eye examination no matter your vision can help identify serious eye problems at the earliest stage, when they are easier to treat. Eye examinations can also detect health problems including diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol and cancer.
