Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? If not, than it is certainly time you had one. People should have eye exams on a regularly scheduled time frame, as determined by their eye doctor. If you are older than sixty, have certain medical problems, or certain eye diseases or disorders, you will need to have them examined more frequently than other people. However, eye exams should be repeated periodically to make sure that your eyes are healthy and disease free. If you need an eye exam in Beekmantown, come to us for thorough and expert eye care.

When you come to North Country Optical for an eye exam in Beekmantown your eyes will be thoroughly examined for all types of problems, diseases and disorders. As part of your eye exam, your eyes will be screened for any type of refractive disorder. If you are found to be nearsighted or farsighted, or have astigmatism, your vision problem can be easily corrected by prescription eyeglasses. If you wish to get contact lenses, you will need to have extra measurements taken of your eyes to be sure that your contacts have the right size information on the prescription.
During an eye exam in Beekmantown, your eyes will also be examined to see if they have any diseases or disorders. Your eyes will also have medicated eye drops put into them that will make your eyes dilate. This will enable our eye doctor to more closely examine the interior of your eyes, including your retina and macula that are found at the back of the eye. This exam is performed with the help of a slit lamp and other special diagnostic equipment. Your eyes will be checked for the presence of: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; corneal problems; and other problems of the retina and macular.
