Focusing on Comprehensive Eye Exams

May is healthy vision month. When was the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? Checking your eyes regularly is one of the best steps you can take to guarantee your eyesight remains strong and healthy. During the session, your eye care professional examines your eyes, looking for common eye diseases and vision issues, some of which lack early modes of detection.

The session starts with a visual acuity test through the use of an eye chart to assess how well you see at various distances. The exterior of your eye also gets tested.

After these tests have concluded, your optometrist may proceed to examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This really matters, as it will provide necessary information about the health of your eyes, as well as information regarding your overall health. For example, it can reveal signs of diseases such as diabetes and also indicate abnormal blood pressure.

You will also be screened for signs of glaucoma. Your eye care professional will do this by determining the pressure in your eye, with a rapid puff of air directed right onto the eye.

Now is the time to protect your vision. Make your eye health a foremost concern, and remember to schedule an eye exam today.

Dear Patients,

Dr. Lewis Eye Care has made the difficult choice to temporarily close due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic based on the recommendation of the CDC. We cannot perform eye exams while maintaining social distancing, so continuing to see patients at this time could contribute to the spread of the virus.

Our initial plan had been to reopen Monday April 6th. However, as we get closer to that date it is becoming apparent that we may have to be closed for a longer, indefinite period of time.

If you are having an urgent eye health issue, there are some clinics in our area that are seeing patients for emergencies during shorter business hours. You should call ahead to those offices before going to their clinic, as their availability might change day by day. Those clinics could include Vancouver Eye Care at 360-823-2020, Peace Health Medical Group Eye Care at 360-514-7210, and Vancouver Clinic in Salmon Creek at 360-882-2778.

If you need a glasses or contact lens prescription emailed to you from our office, click on the Contact Form link, type in your name, email, and what you are requesting, and we will email you the information you need as soon as we can.

Thank you for your understanding, and please stay healthy during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott Lewis, OD
