At Riviera Vision, we know that your eyes should never be taken for granted. Having the best eyeglass or contact lens prescription is just the beginning. Our complete eye examinations include not only a prescription to help you experience the sharpest vision possible, but also a full evaluation of the health of the eye and some related structures. We also offer medical eye examinations to evaluate and treat conditions such as allergies and conjunctivitis, or pink eye.
A standard, yearly comprehensive examination at Riviera Vision will evaluate your vision, eye movements, peripheral or side vision, as well as the health of your eyelids, cornea, optic nerve and more. You will be screened for eye and systemic conditions that you may not even know that you have.
Some eye conditions that can be detected in a regular eye examination include:
- Dry eye
- Macular degeneration
- Lazy eye (strabismus and amblyopia)
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Carotid artery obstruction
- Multiple sclerosis
- Elevated spinal fluid pressure
- Optic nerve tumors
Dilation of the pupils never costs extra and is a necessary part of a comprehensive eye examination. Do not be fooled by photos that claim to replace dilation. While helpful in detecting yearly changes, no photo that exists today can fully replace a dilated eye examination by a skilled physician.
