Eye Exams in Gardendale AL
At Gardendale Eye Care, we offer comprehensive eye exams and vision exams for men, women and children. 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 to provide treatment options and, in many cases, restore vision or prevent vision loss.
Gardendale Eye Exam and Consultation: What To Expect
Whether you are a new or existing patient, we begin with a consultation of your full medical history to ensure that proper eye care is given. All eye exams include a full medical screening to test for glaucoma and cataracts, as well as macular degeneration. We check for defects that could have long-term effects on your vision, as well as your eye pressure.
During an eye exam, our Gardendale optometrist will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your 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. Francisco will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
We check for defects that could have long-term effects on your vision, as well as your eye pressure. For better testing measurements during the exam, we dilate your eyes. After your examination, our Gardendale eye doctor discusses your results and assesses your needs for prescription glasses or other necessary eyewear. You have the opportunity to pick your frames or contact lenses after consulting with us about your options.
For your convenience, we work with all types of healthcare. Walk-ins are accepted. NEW patients welcome!
