Perfect vision at any age

The ophthalmic visit for progressive lenses: everything you need to know.

Vision is one of our most important senses, and maintaining good eye health is essential for ensuring a good quality of life. As we age, we commonly experience decreased visual capacity, especially in close-up vision.

The ophthalmic visit

An ophthalmic visit is a medical examination performed by an ophthalmologist to evaluate a person’s eye health and vision. The examination can be performed on people of all ages and help identify ocular problems such as myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia, glaucoma, and other conditions.

How to maintain eye health – it’s vital to get annual ophthalmic examinations to determine if your vision is in good condition.

The ophthalmic visit can be divided into different parts, depending on the patient’s needs. Typically, the examination begins with evaluating the patient’s medical history and current symptoms. The ophthalmologist may ask the patient if they have noticed changes in their vision, such as blurred vision, double vision, or difficulty seeing objects far or near. Additionally, the doctor may ask the patient if they have a family history of eye problems or have undergone eye surgeries or traumas.

A standard ophthalmic examination is a comprehensive series of tests done by an ophthalmologist after evaluating the patient’s medical history.

The ophthalmologist can perform a visual examination after evaluating the patient’s medical history. This may include using a Snellen chart, a table containing letters of different sizes to evaluate the patient’s vision. The ophthalmologist may also perform a refraction test, which measures the eye’s ability to focus light. During the refraction test, the patient may be asked to look through a series of lenses to determine the best correction for their vision.
