Preparing for Your Eye Exam

When requesting a comprehensive eye exam at Jansen Optical, we strive to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible. Here's what you can expect and how to prepare for your visit:

Before Your Appointment

Compile a list of current prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and supplements you're taking, as well as a summary of your medical history, eye health concerns, and insurance information. This information helps us tailor the exam to your specific needs.

If you currently wear glasses or contact lenses, please bring them along with any prescriptions. This will help us evaluate your current vision correction and how we can improve it.

During Your Exam

Our comprehensive eye exams include a range of tests to assess your vision and eye health, utilizing advanced technology like digital retinal imaging. You’ll undergo visual acuity tests, eye function assessments, and screenings for common eye conditions.

Be sure to ask any questions you have along the way. Our team is here to provide comprehensive answers and advice tailored to your needs.

After Your Exam

We’ll discuss the results of your exam, including any changes in your vision or eye health. We’ll prescribe glasses or contact lenses or recommend further treatment options.

Depending on your eye health status, we may request follow-up visits to monitor any conditions or adjust your vision correction solutions.

Eye Exams for Children

Pediatric eye exams are crucial assessments to evaluate children's visual health and acuity. These exams are essential for detecting vision problems or eye diseases early and ensuring children have the visual capabilities required for their educational, social, and personal development.

When Should Children Have Eye Exams?

The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends the following guidelines for pediatric eye exams:

  • First Exam: At six months of age
  • Second Exam: At age three
  • Third Exam: Before starting kindergarten (around age five or six)
  • Subsequent Exams: Annually or as recommended by an eye care professional

Children with existing vision problems or risk factors for eye diseases may need more frequent examinations.

Unlike adult eye exams, pediatric examinations are tailored to the child’s age, development, and cooperation level. They incorporate a range of techniques and tools to accurately assess each aspect of the child’s visual system.

The Importance of Regular Eye Exams

Comprehensive eye exams are essential for the whole family, ensuring optimal eye health and early detection of vision problems. These exams help diagnose conditions like myopia in children, age-related macular degeneration in adults, and glaucoma in seniors, all of which can significantly impact quality of life if left untreated.

Regular eye exams allow timely intervention, preventing vision loss and promoting better eye health. By including the entire family in routine check-ups, everyone can maintain sharp vision, supporting educational performance for kids, productivity for adults, and independence for grandparents.
