Routine Eye Exams
Warrenville EyeCare is dedicated to serving as a full service eye center. You can count on us to take care of all your eye care needs—from routine eye exams to treatment of eye disease.
Everyone should have routine eye exams. How often you should have an eye exam depends on your age, general health and whether you have any ongoing eye disorders.
During a routine eye examination, Dr. Nijm will test your eyesight and the health of your eyes. Even if you feel your eyesight is good, it is important to have an open discussion about your current health problems, family history, profession and lifestyle because these things may have an impact on your eyes now and in the future.
Dr. Nijm will thoroughly examine your eyes from front to back using modern, state of the art equipment. If necessary, she will also give you a prescription for glasses. Just as you have your blood pressure taken at your primary care physician's office, Dr. Nijm will use a device to measure the pressure inside your eye to check for glaucoma. In addition, she will check your eyes for signs of common conditions such as cataracts, diabetes and macular degeneration.
None of the tests used during a routine eye examination are painful or uncomfortable. Dr. Nijm may use eye drops that will dilate (widen) your pupils, which may make it difficult for your eyes to focus at near for several hours after the exam.
