10 Common Eye Care Questions and Answers:

 

Do I need a comprehensive eye exam each year if my vision is good and my eyes feel healthy?

Yes! Elite Vision Care recommends annual comprehensive eye exams – even for individuals that don’t have current vision problems. The purpose of an annual eye exam is to discover and treat vision or eye health problems early.

How long does an eye exam last?

In most cases and depending on your needs, a comprehensive eye exam lasts approximately 45 minutes to one hour. To save time, new patients may complete our New Patient Forms online before your first appointment.

Do you accept my vision plan or medical insurance?

Why do my eyes always feel dry?

Many people suffer from chronic dry eyes. Our goal is discovering the underlying cause of the problem and effectively treat it. There’s no reason to live with dry eyes when there is a solution.

Why does it seem like my vision is blurry?

Your vision might be blurry due to something simple – such as incorrect glasses or contact lens prescription. However, blurry vision can be attributed to other issues. If you have consistently blurry vision, schedule an eye doctor visit as soon as possible.

If I wear glasses with the wrong prescription, will it make my vision worse?

Looking through an incorrect prescription might make you dizzy, give you a headache, and make you feel nauseous, but it is unlikely to cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision.

How can I keep my eyes as healthy as possible?

We recommend visiting for an annual eye health and vision exams, eating a healthy diet, always wearing sunglasses when you are outside during the day, and living an overall healthy lifestyle.
