What is a Digital Eye Exam?

Optometry has come a long way. Eye care technology has advanced; new and improved equipment – such as digital eye exams – can be found in many eye care centers near you.

Now, instead of having you just read a classic eye chart and answer “which is better, A or B?”, digital eye exams offer software-driven eye charts and sensors that measure how the eye reacts to light. By changing the magnification of an image until it comes into focus for the patient, a precise vision prescription can be generated.

At our optometry offices in Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring, Greenspoint, Kingwood and Houston, we’re pleased to take advantage of advanced technology to enhance accuracy and the patient experience.

Digital Eye Exams Are Efficient

Customized automated vision testing saves time during your appointment (without compromising on accuracy), eliminating the tedious routine of having you look through many different lenses to see which is clearer. Instead, our eye doctor can pay more attention to getting to know your personal needs.

Not Just Vision; Eye Health Too

In addition to checking your vision, digital eye exams can also map and image your eye – providing our eye doctor near you with a large amount of detailed information about your eye health. Digital eye exams also offer:

  • Corneal topography, facilitating advanced contact lenses fittings
  • Early detection of eye disease, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma
  • Identification of the signs of hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes in your eyes
  • Diagnosis of vision problems that may only occur at night, such as halos and starbursts

See for yourself how technology can sharpen your vision and improve your eye health! We offer digital eye exams near you in Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring, Greenspoint, Kingwood and Houston.

At Eye Trends, we put your family’s needs first. Talk to us about how we can help you maintain healthy vision. Call us today: 936-206-7366 or book an appointment online to see one of our Conroe eye doctors.
