How is an Eye Exam Performed at Key-whitman Eye Center?
During a comprehensive eye examination, your eye care physician will test your vision and screen you for potential conditions and diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Some eye conditions have no easily detectable symptoms in their early stages, so you might even feel completely normal. Left untreated, however, these conditions can cause severe loss of vision. That’s why it is important to see our team of highly qualified and experienced eye doctors in the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metroplex regularly.
During your vision exam, we will dilate your eye’s pupils for a better look at the retina and optic nerve. Because of this, your vision could be slightly blurry and light sensitive for a few hours following your exam.
We encourage you to bring sunglasses with you for this reason, though we can provide temporary sunglasses if necessary.
