Eye Exams The Villages

Comprehensive Eye Exams for the Entire Family

Ram Eye Care & Retina Center recognizes the significance of thorough eye examinations. We strongly recommend that you and your loved ones undergo eye exams at our facility in The Villages. Our comprehensive evaluations encompass a thorough assessment of all aspects of your visual and ocular system. In addition to identifying issues with your visual acuity, these exams have the potential to uncover various conditions that may have gone unnoticed. For instance, ailments like diabetes, high blood pressure, lupus, high cholesterol, glaucoma, and macular degeneration can be detected. Furthermore, a comprehensive eye exam can even reveal potentially life-threatening conditions such as stroke, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and sexually transmitted diseases. Trust us to provide you with the most comprehensive care and ensure the wellbeing of your eyes and overall health.

How Often Should You Have Your Eyes Examined?

Eye exam frequency depends on your age. For people aged 20 to 39 we recommend every 5 years. For those 40 to 54 we suggest every 2 to 4 years, 55 to 64 every 1 to 3 years, and for those over 64 every 1 to 2 years.

What you should bring to your eye exam

It’s important to bring any eyeglasses or contacts that you are currently using. This will aid us in determining if you require a change in our prescription. Also, bring a list of all medications that you currently are taking as well as any insurance information and identification.

What is included in a comprehensive eye exam?

When we do a thorough eye examination, we will evaluate the following:

  • Coordination and function of the eye muscles
  • Peripheral vision
  • The ability for the eyes to focus (Accommodative response)
  • Visual acuity
  • Do you need eyeglasses or contacts?
  • Intraocular pressure
  • Pupillary response
  • Eyelid health & function
  • Is there a presence of ocular disease such as “lazy eye” or diabetic eye disease?
  • Anterior segment of the eye to include your cornea, conjunctiva, iris, and lens

What You Can Expect During Your Eye Examination

In the course of conducting a thorough eye examination, it will be necessary to dilate your eyes. The reason for this is that when your eyes are dilated, we can accurately assess the health of the posterior segment of the eye. And this also includes the retina and the optic nerve. Therefore, we can detect glaucoma, macular degeneration or diabetic eye disease.
So, even when your vision is 20/20 you may still have a condition that could lead to a serious issue. We are committed to preventing any condition that could threaten your eyesight. While dilating your eyes will lead to blurriness, you may want to arrange to have a friend or family member drive you home. Dilation usually wears off in 2 to 3 hours and you will return to normal.
