Can you recall the last time you had your eyes examine? A simple vision test is not enough to truly provide for the full spectrum of health care which your eyes require. Even if you have not been diagnosed as having a risk of developing an optical condition or otherwise have what appears to be perfect vision, you should still be seeing your local Fulton eye doctor at least every two to four years for a comprehensive eye exam. At the offices of Dr. Shipley & Associates we utilize the latest technology with a personal touch to truly care for your eyes and help you maintain perfect vision.
Basic vision tests touch upon only a fraction what truly must be done to protect and examine your eyes completely for total optical care. A vision test only examines your eyes for visual acuity, meaning your ability to see at a distance. This does not test your eye’s ability to see objects up close, nor does it check your ability to distinguish different colors, or insure that your depth perception is truly working at its peak. A comprehensive eye exam at your trusted Fulton eye doctor works with you to test for all of these abilities, including your eyes’ ability to work together as a single unit, to insure your vision is truly as effective as you believe it to be.
Comprehensive eye exams at your professional Fulton eye doctor test for much more than your ability to see clearly. One of the most important parts of any optical exam is the physical examination which your optometrist performs to diagnostically test for the many conditions which can develop later in life, and often without any of us realizing they are present at all. Cataracts, the leading cause of blindness in the United States, can develop in anyone regardless of whether or not you already have an optical condition, and will show no symptoms at all until loss of vision has already begun. Fortunately, there are many effective and non-invasive tests your doctor can utilize to diagnose the disease in its earliest stages for improve treatment to protect your vision.
