If you have not had an eye exam in over a year, we urge you to stop by our optometry practice, Jeffrey H Brown Optometry, for a comprehensive eye exam. Our Irvine CA eye doctor, Dr. Jeffrey H. Brown, will be able to provide you with a complete eye exam which includes many different types of eye testing and screenings.
When a patient comes to our vision practice for an eye exam they can either have a comprehensive eye exam or a contact lens exam and fitting. Both of these eye exams will provide the patient with complete eye testing by our Irvine CA eye doctor. Your eyes will be screened for any type of refractive error which includes nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Refractive errors can be corrected with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses; patients are now happy to learn that even if they have astigmatism or dry eye that they can now wear contact lenses for excellent vision correction. Our eye doctor will also perform eye testing to make sure your eyes are not developing any type of eye disease. Among the many eye diseases that your eyes will be screened for are: macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; cataracts; glaucoma; dry eye; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If our eye doctor finds that you have a specific eye disease, he will be able to treat you for the problem, or if advanced care is needed, you will be referred to a top-notch ophthalmologist in the area who can provide the expert care that you need. During a contact lens exam and fitting, our eye doctor will also take measurements of the curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris to make sure that your new contact lenses will fit your eyes precisely; this will ensure that your eyes are not damaged by wearing contact lenses which are ill-fitting.
