Comprehensive Eye Exams in Milford
The Importance of Comprehensive Eye Exams
A comprehensive eye examination at our New Haven County eye care center will include vision screening tests as well as other tests that can help uncover eye disease and other issues. Comprehensive eye exams are a valuable tool in diagnosing problems in their early stages, helping to slow down an eye problem’s progression and prevent long-term damage from occurring. Routine eye exams are recommended for people of all ages, regardless of whether or not they have a history of eye issues.
Our eye exams help detect issues such as:
- Lazy eye
- Crossed eyes or eye alignment issues
- Tunnel vision
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Dry eye
High blood pressure and high cholesterol can also impact eye health, and some eye exam tests may detect problems related to these conditions. Once a diagnosis has been reached, you and your doctor can work together to develop a treatment or management plan, if necessary, to support you in living a healthy and high-quality life.
