Optometry refers to a traditional process of evaluating your eye care needs and concerns. At our clinic, a doctor of optometry evaluates your vision by providing exams and checking on changes to your eyes. We may also recommend tests for glaucoma or related eye health concerns in certain situations. Generally, an optometrist is a type of primary care professional for your eyes. Optometrists provide the check-ups and basic vision care you need to maintain the health of your eyes.
An eye exam is a basic part of visual health because it allows a professional to determine the risks to your eyes at different stages of life. You want an eye exam one a yearly basis. If you have a risk for certain conditions or you notice changes to your vision, then consider more regular check-ups on your eyes. You may also need additional exams during pregnancy, while taking certain medications or after reaching a certain age. Parents should consider exams for their children each year to keep track of changes to a child's vision over time.
When an exam identifies a change to your vision, you may need glasses or contacts. At our clinic in Chicago, we help you find frames to fit your style and prescription. We may also provide a specialized exam to measure your eyes if you choose to wear contacts instead of glasses. A professional helps you pick out a trendy or comfortable pair of glasses based on your needs and goals. Our recommendations depend on your budget, goals and the styles you prefer. We also help you identify the right type of frames for your lifestyle, including specialized options if you engage in sports or related activities.
