Scheduling regular eye exams is an effective way to maintain better eye health. Regular visits enable the optometrist to more closely monitor your vision and eye health so potential issues can be addressed promptly before becoming more serious. Dr. Rachel Simpson, Dr. Darryl Greenwood, and Dr. Mervet Hachem, the experienced optometrists at Linsey EyeCare in Wyomissing, PA, provide eye exams and other services to help you enjoy better vision and eye health. They proudly serve residents of Wyomissing, and Reading, PA.

Regular Eye Exams

Eye exams are used to evaluate eye health and vision. An exam helps reveal when prescription eyewear is needed to improve vision. Eye exams are also used to determine if changes are needed to an existing prescription.

Eye exams can involve several different tests, such as:

  • Eye focus and tracking
  • Peripheral vision and depth perception
  • Color vision deficiencies
  • Tonometry glaucoma test
  • Retinal evaluation
  • Pupil dilation
  • Refraction

Individuals with prescription eyewear should see an optometrist for an eye exam annually, or more often as directed by the doctor. Regular exams are important for determining if the current prescription needs to be adjusted. Healthy adults without prescription glasses or contacts should schedule an eye exam every two to three years.

Eye and Vision Conditions
