eye exam Warner Robins GA

Advanced Eyecare Center works to prevent diseases and promote wellness through thorough eye exams for children and adults. During our comprehensive eye exams, we detect and treat conditions such as dry eye and computer vision syndrome, as well as eye diseases that can affect your vision and health.

Regardless of your age or physical health, it's important to have regular eye exams.

A comprehensive eye exam at our Warner Robins eye care clinic includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside of your eyes.

Eyecare experts recommend you have a complete eye exam every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors, and physical condition.

Medical Eye Examinations : Your visit will be coded as a “medical eye examination” whenever you are being evaluated or treated for a medical condition or symptom that you bring up, eye problems you tell our staff about, or a condition that the doctor finds during the examination. Examples that will necessitate your visit being submitted to your medical insurance include headache, diabetes mellitus, eye irritation, dry eyes, allergies, floaters, contact lens intolerance, glaucoma, cataract, eye muscle imbalance, “lazy eye”, macular degeneration, and others. Please note that if you have diabetes mellitus, and would like us to send a letter to your primary care physician regarding your eye examination, the visit will be coded as a “medical eye examination”.

Pediatric Eye Exams in Warner Robins & Perry, GA

Some experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), all children should have their eyes examined at 6 months of age, at age 3 and again at the start of school. Children without vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should then continue to have their eyes examined at least every two years throughout school.

Children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently. Common risk factors for vision problems include:

  • premature birth
  • developmental delays
  • turned or crossed eyes
  • family history of eye disease
  • history of eye injury
  • other physical illness or disease

The AOA recommends that children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months or according to their eye doctor’s instructions.

Annual Eye Exams At Advanced Eyecare Center

The AOA also recommends an annual eye exam for any adult who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don’t normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every two to three years up to the age of 40, depending on your rate of visual change and overall health. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health.

If you are over 40, it’s a good idea to have your eyes examined every one to two years to check for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Because the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, everyone over the age of 60 should be examined annually.
