Complete Eye Care Q&A
What is complete eye care?
Complete eye care is a medical service that focuses on screening, diagnosing, treating, and preventing eye conditions and vision problems. Regularly participating in complete eye care is important for general eye health and management of vision needs.
Dr. Steinberg is an experienced ophthalmologist who provides complete eye care services at her practice.
When do I need complete eye care?
You need professional eye care from Dr. Steinberg whenever you have changes in vision or conditions that cause eye pain or discomfort. Dr. Steinberg provides eye care for people 12 and up.
You also need regular eye care if you wear prescription eyeglasses to see clearly.
Dr. Steinberg recommends adults start routine eye exams at age 40 so that she can screen them for common age-related eye problems like presbyopia (farsightedness), glaucoma, and dry eyes. The frequency of your complete eye care visits depends on your vision and eye health needs, medical history, and age.
You also need eye care if you’re experiencing eye headaches, problems focusing, difficulty seeing clearly at night, or you can’t remember the last time you had an eye exam.
What happens during an eye care exam?
Dr. Steinberg uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment during your eye care exam. She uses these tools to evaluate vision and assess general eye health. Your eye care exam may take 45 to 90 minutes.
Dr. Steinberg reviews your medical history, tests your vision, and evaluates eye movement. She also checks eye pressure to screen for glaucoma and evaluates the front of your eye — the cornea — to look for cataracts, scars, or scratches.
She then dilates your eye so she can evaluate your retina. The state-of-the-art ophthalmology practice uses digital retinal photography to capture images of your retina to look for retinal disorders like macular degeneration.
What are some complete eye care treatments?
Dr. Steinberg customizes your eye care treatment based on your eye health and vision needs. For visual impairments, she provides eyeglass prescriptions and contact lenses; for eye conditions, Dr. Steinberg provides treatment to improve eye health and prevent vision changes.
Depending on your eye care needs, Dr. Steinberg may schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your vision and eye health so she can adjust your plan as needed.
