Eye exams can include several different aspects. Dr. Rabbani reviews a patient’s personal and family medical and vision history and evaluate his or her vision using an eye chart. This can help identify farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia or other common vision problems. The health of the eyes will be tested with an eye pressure test, which is used to identify glaucoma and an examination of the optic nerve and internal eye structures, which can identify cataracts or macular degeneration.
Patients with vision problems will be provided with a prescription. Contact lens exams can include different tests and a fitting to ensure comfort and effectiveness. Patients may be able to choose from a variety of lenses and frames to meet their needs. Dr. Rabbani’s office offers exclusive frames that include eco-friendly, handmade and vintage designs. Medicare and most vision insurance plans cover routine eye exams. Low-risk patients are encouraged to have one routine eye exam every two years. Children, adults with vision problems and those who are over 61 are generally advised to have eye exams annually but may need more frequent exams.
