If you cannot remember the last time you had an eye exam, you will want to make an appointment to see our top-notch optometrist, Dr. Matt Aaker. At The Eyeglass Shop, our therapeutic optometrist is also a glaucoma specialist. He can provide you with a comprehensive eye exam or a contact lens exam and fitting, both of which will include an eye test San Antonio Texas, for glaucoma.
During our contact lens exam and fitting or comprehensive eye exam, your eyes will be thoroughly screened for many different eye diseases and disorders. An eye test San Antonio Texas will be performed for glaucoma to make sure that your intraocular pressure is not high. If it is, additional testing will most likely be needed to be done by our eye doctor to make a diagnosis of glaucoma. Other eye diseases and conditions that are screened for during our eye exams are: macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; cataracts; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. During our comprehensive eye health exams, your eyes will also be screened for their visual acuity. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism with or without either of these other refractive errors, your vision can be easily corrected with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Patients with astigmatism are often happy to learn that they too can wear contact lenses. In fact, today, even patients with dry eye can comfortably and safely have their vision corrected using contact lenses, as well. When our doctor performs an eye test San Antonio Texas for glaucoma, you will remain perfectly comfortable, as the test is not painful. In fact, you will remain perfectly comfortable and pain-free during your entire comprehensive eye exam.
