Physical Eye Health Exam
At Eagan Eye Clinic, we encourage everyone to have a yearly eye examination to screen for any serious ocular conditions. Your comprehensive eye health exam is a thorough physical assessment of the external and internal eye anatomy. You will be carefully evaluated for many eye conditions such as dry eyes, eye allergies, conjunctivitis, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, optic nerve disease, and retinal vascular disorders. In addition, common general health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol can also adversely affect your vision and eye health. As with most diseases, early detection is crucial to minimizing any permanent damage these health conditions can cause to your vision or eye health.
At Eagan Eye Clinic, we us advanced digital and computerized diagnostic instruments to track both physical and functional changes in your eyes. Some of instruments used during your eye exam include a slit lamp biomicroscope, binocular indirect ophthalmoscope and special focusing lenses. Your pupils may be dilated with eye drops for some of these tests.
