James Tracey Eye Care is The Best Place To Get Your Eyes Checked!
At James Tracey Eye Care, we go beyond a simple basic eye check-up. Comprehensive eye exams at our Midtown clinic are so much more than simply determining your glasses or contact lens prescription.
Our optometric team will also check your eyes for eye diseases and conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, evaluate visual skills such as eye teaming, and assess your eyes as an indicator of your overall physical health.
No matter your age, a thorough eye exam goes a long way in promoting clear vision and healthy eyes. Contact James Tracey Eye Care in Midtown to book your eye exam today.
Eye Exams Can Save Your Vision
Eye exams are an essential part of long-term eye health. Many vision-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, or diabetic retinopathy show no or minimal symptoms until the disease has progressed into its advanced stages. So you won't experience any signs to get your eyes checked until it is already too late.
Early detection and treatment is essential to prevent significant loss of vision.
During a comprehensive eye examination, your eye doctor will be looking for initial signs of these diseases.
Eye Exams for Children & Young Adults
Children with undetected vision problems or with eye health may face many barriers in life, whether in school or in sports. Because 80% of all we learn is through vision, the longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the more a child’s brain learns to accommodate any vision issues. Having regular eye exams offers the best opportunity to correct vision issues and help a child succeed.
How Often Do Kids Need to Have Eye Exams?
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), your child should have their first eye exam around 6 months of age, and then once again around 3 years old. You should then be sure to get their eyes checked once they begin school, and every year thereafter.
Common signs that your child should see an eye doctor more often than once per year include:
- premature birth
- developmental delays
- turned or crossed eyes
- the family history of eye disease
- history of eye injury
- other physical illness or disease
Consult with our Midtown optometric team for personalized recommendations to correct vision issues and help your child succeed.
How Do Eye Exams Work At James Tracey Eye Care?
During an eye exam at our clinic, our eye care team in Midtown, New York will do a thorough assessment of your vision to make sure you have the most accurate prescription for your glasses or contacts.
We'll ask you to read from a basic eye chart and use a phoropter to check carefully for astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. This requires you to look through a series of lenses and give feedback on which ones give the clearest vision.
With the aid of a retinoscope, we'll measure how light focuses on your retina with each of the different lenses.
These tests, among others, provide us with the information needed to check your eye health and issue an accurate prescription.
Vision Exams For Those Over 40
There are a number of common age-related eye conditions such as presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration that can begin to affect your vision and your daily life as you get older.
In addition to regular yearly eye exams, it is important to be aware of any changes in your eye health and vision that may signal an immediate need for professional eye care. You should know your potential risk factors as well as your family ocular and medical history.
