A regular eye exam will evaluate the overall health of your eyes and indicate if further testing in any areas are necessary.A refraction is usually performed to determine if there is a need for, or change in, prescription glasses or contact lenses.
The eye exam may be targeted to a specific issue in question or may be a comprehensive exam if needed. We at Iris Eye Center take your emergencies seriously.

For adults, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends a baseline eye examination at age 40, the time when early signs of disease or changes in vision may occur. If you have an eye disease or if you have a risk factor for developing one, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of eye disease, you should see an ophthalmologist even if you are younger than 40. If you are 65 or older, you should have your eyes checked every year, because the risk of developing age-related eye diseases such as cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma increases.
