Our eyesight is a remarkable gift that allows us to admire the world around us. Without good vision, it is difficult to read, drive, work, and enjoy everyday activities. Unfortunately, eye problems can develop gradually, often without noticeable symptoms. Therefore, a preventive eye exam by an optometrist in Amsterdam is essential to maintain your long-term vision.

Why a preventive eye exam is important

An eye exam offers several benefits that can optimize your eye health:

Early detection of eye diseases: Eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma can cause irreversible damage to vision if not diagnosed and treated early. An eye exam can detect these conditions in their early stages, when treatment is most effective.

Preservation of vision: By identifying and treating eye problems early, we can reduce the risk of further vision loss and protect your long-term vision.

Optimization of your vision: Even if you are not experiencing vision problems, an eye exam can provide valuable information about your eyes. We can measure your refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) and determine if you need glasses or contact lenses to optimize your vision.

What to expect during an eye exam

Our team of experienced optometrists performs a comprehensive eye exam, including:

  • Vision testing: We check your vision at distance and near to determine if you need glasses or contact lenses.
  • Tonometry: We measure the pressure in your eyes to detect glaucoma, a condition that can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss.
  • Eye scans: We take digital images of your retina and macula, the areas responsible for your sharp central vision, to detect abnormalities that may indicate conditions such as macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy.
  • Slit lamp examination: We examine the front parts of your eyes, including the cornea, iris, and lens, for signs of cataracts, infections, or other conditions.

After your eye exam, we will discuss the findings with you in clear language and answer any questions you have. We will provide you with personalized advice on how to optimize your eye health, including:

  • Lifestyle modifications, such as regular breaks during screen work, eating a healthy diet, and quitting smoking, which can contribute to maintaining your eye health.
  • Eye medications, such as eye drops or ointments, which may be prescribed to treat or manage certain eye conditions.
  • Glasses or contact lenses with the correct prescription and type to optimize your vision for both near and distance viewing.
  • Referral to an ophthalmologist for further treatment if necessary, if conditions are found that require specialized care.
