Regardless of age or physical condition, routine eye exams are an important part of overall health maintenance for everyone. To keep their prescriptions current and to check for early signs of eye disease, adults should have their eyes tested regularly. Vision is closely linked to the learning process and children with undetected vision problems will often have trouble with their schoolwork, so eye exams for children are equally important. Therefore, if you notice your child is not performing up to par at school, have their eyes examined at our Bushwick Optical Store, General Vision Express/Lens Lab where we are regarded as an outstanding provider of eye care in the Bushwick and surrounding areas.
During our comprehensive eye exam at our Bushwick Optical Store, our opticians do much more than determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Several different tests and procedures to examine your eyes will be performed, from having you read an eye chart, to using a high-powered lens to see the tiny structures inside your eyes. A thorough comprehensive eye exam can take an hour or more depending on the complexity of tests needed to evaluate your vision and the total health of your eyes. Our Bushwick optometrist at General Vision Express will check for common eye diseases, evaluate how both your eyes work together and check to see if your eyes condition indicate any other health problems. Our talented Bushwick eye doctors are often the first health care providers to detect chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. By looking at your eye’s retina and blood vessels the eye doctor can also detect high blood pressure and cholesterol. In addition, our eye doctor will be checking for other problems that could lead to vision loss such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, to name a few.
