At Mobley Eye Care, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.
Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, Dr. Dean Mobley will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Mobley will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Sharpsburg optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Mobley will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Mobley may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Sharpsburg office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Mobley to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Sharpsburg optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Mobley evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Mobley reviews the results and discusses an treatments with you. Contact us at 770-304-2025 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
Why do you need a contact lens fitting?
Fitting contact lenses is as much an art as it is a science. Here at Mobley Eye Care we take the time to carefully examine your eyes in order to match you with the right contact lens. This is not something that needs to be rushed. There are different measurements that are needed to go along with the prescription in order to finding the proper contact lens as for you. What works best for someone else, won’t always work for you.
What to expect during your Contact Lens Fitting.
Our Contact lens fitting is performed in addition to the eye examination. Prior to purchasing contact lenses, the doctor will fit you into a trial pair in order to determine if the lenses are comfortable and fitting correctly. If you are new to contact lenses, one of our staff members will teach you how to properly clean, wear and discard your lenses.
There are different types of contacts lenses. What contact is right for you?
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are popular among patients because of their comfort. Most people can wear them full-time immediately. They are available in many types of materials and designs, as well as in daily and extended wear (overnight) options.
Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses
Compared to soft lenses, rigid lenses often provide superior vision, are easier to care for, and are less expensive. They can be designed in virtually any size, shape, and prescription.
Daily Silicon Soft Contact Lenses
These are especially great for children because they are the easiest lenses to care for. Daily lenses reduce the risk for dryness, infections and allergies.
