When to See an Optometrist

When to See an Optometrist in Dallas, Texas

If you have never been to an optometrist, you might be unsure how often you need to have an eye exam. In fact, most patients only think about seeing their optometrist when they have an eye or vision emergency. Yet, regular eye exams are another important service that our eye doctors provide here at Insight Complete Eye Care in Dallas, Texas. By getting an eye exam on a routine basis, you are able to develop a professional relationship with our trusted eye care team. We can help you maintain your vision and eye health for the long term.

When Should I Get a Routine Eye Exam?

We recommend that school-age children have an eye exam before starting school. For teens and adults, annual eye exams are recommended. This gives your optometrist the ability to identify early signs of eye or vision problems. For individuals with vision correction needs, more frequent eye exams may be necessary.

When Should I Go to an Optometrist for Eye and Vision Concerns?

Optometrists are able to diagnose a treat a wide range of refractive, ocular surface and retinal diseases. Our doctors are trained in prescribing glasses, soft contact lenses and hard contact lenses, as well as determining candidacy for refractive surgery. Some of the ocular surface diseases that we manage include dry eye, ocular foreign bodies, ocular rosacea, allergies, chemical and thermal burns, ulcers and infections, and red eyes.

If a referral to an ophthalmologist for surgical treatment is necessary we will always help you find the best doctor for your condition.
