Preventative Eye Care Prevents Vision Loss

Early Detection & Treatment of Eye Diseases Reduces Vision Loss by up to 95%

The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that Americans age 60 and older have annual eye exams. These routine annual appointments allow us to detect changes to your vision as they happen. The earlier developing eye diseases are detected and managed, the more likely that long-term visual acuity can be preserved.

Dealing With Changes to Eye Health That Occur As We Age

Leveraging Our Experience & Advanced Diagnostic Technologies

Like the rest of the body, our eyes change gradually over time. The lens becomes less flexible, leading to refractive errors like presbyopia; the lens also begins to become cloudy, leading to cataracts; the cells inside the eye begin to wear down, eventually leading to age-related macular degeneration.

An eye exam from a Schaeffer Eye Center will ensure that your eye health is always managed as needed in order for you to have maximum visual acuity.

Preliminary Examination – A comprehensive eye exam includes pre-testing performed by an Optometric Assistant. These tests provide important information about the health, shape, and size of your eyes that the Optometrist uses to look for developing eye diseases, refractive errors, or other concerns.

Please bring your eyeglasses or contact lenses and a copy of your latest corrective lens prescription to the eye exam. We can also test your sunglasses to determine their UV-blocking effectiveness.

Consultation With Our Optometrist

An eye exam is fast and generally finished within an hour (including preliminary testing). Once your pre-testing is finished, our eye doctor will then perform a few additional procedures and tests. Once complete, we will walk you through the results, any next steps (if relevant), as well as answer your questions.

Tests performed by the Optometrist include:

Slit lamp examination
Topography & keratometry
