Caring for Your Eyes Starts Here
Total Vision Bonita approaches every eye exam with care, compassion, and medically backed processes.
Throughout your life, your eyes undergo subtle changes that, over time, can affect your vision and eye health. Many of these changes often occur without your knowledge, but they could eventually lead to permanent vision problems if we don’t monitor them.
From watching your child walk the graduation stage to seeing a movie at the theater, we want you to enjoy your eyes. The first step is booking an eye exam. We can handle the rest.
When Should You Have an Eye Exam?
Your vision is a gift, but it’s also a responsibility. Because your eyes can develop conditions without your knowledge, you need to have regular eye exams to detect these issues.
Depending on your particular eye health, we may recommend more frequent exams, but we generally recommend having an exam:
- Once every year between ages 18 and 64.
- Annually if you’re over 65.
What Should You Expect?
An eye exam is the cornerstone of all eye care. Before you can find glasses, wear contact lenses, or be approved for laser eye surgery, you’ll first need an eye exam.
Occasionally, exams may take a little longer depending on your needs. But we’ll always try to let you know beforehand so you can plan accordingly.
Initial conversations help our team customize the exam to address your specific needs. During this discussion, we’ll confirm your personal and family health history, take note of any medications you use, and ask about your eyes and vision.
We’ll also open the conversation for you to ask questions or address concerns. Every detail helps us tailor the exam to you, so please provide us as much information as possible.
Assessing How Sharp Your Vision Is
Once we confirm your eye health and health history, we’ll move on to testing how sharp your vision is (your visual acuity). This is the part of the exam that helps us determine your lens prescription.
Testing for Eye Disease
Eye disease testing is essential for detecting any issues that could affect your vision or eye health. Many eye diseases develop without early symptoms, but they can rob you of your sight over time.
We use the latest technology to observe your eyes and look for diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more.e.
Wrap-up, Prescriptions, & Recommendations
At the end of the exam, we’ll wrap up by providing our findings, recommendations, and prescriptions.
Are Your Eyes At-Risk?
How often you have an eye exam depends on your eye health. Some factors can make you higher risk, including:
- Dry eyes
- Previous eye surgery
- Contact lenses use
- Health condition like lupus or diabetes
- Medications with ocular side effects
- High refractive errors
- Hazardous work or living environments
