Comprehensive Eye Exams in Andover, KS, and Winfield, KS

A comprehensive eye exam offers more than just a visual screening. In addition to performing a variety of visual acuity tests, our doctors will examine your eye, both internally and externally, to identify eye disease and conditions and to ensure optimal eye health for years to come.

Comprehensive Eye Exams Are an Essential Part of Preventative Healthcare

Comprehensive eye exams allow us to monitor your eyes for any changes that may affect your health or vision. Many of these eye conditions or diseases are asymptomatic, meaning you won’t know you have them without seeing an optometrist for an exam. Treating these concerns early is key to preventing vision loss. 

Furthermore, your overall eye health can tell us a lot about your physical health as well. Poor eyesight has been linked to various health concerns, including thyroid disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, neurological conditions, and more. 

How Often Do I Need an Eye Exam?

Even if you think your eyesight is fine or have been told you have 20/20 vision, you still need regular eye exams. 

We recommend yearly eye exams so we can diagnose and manage any potential symptoms. Patients over 65, at-risk patients, or patients with a history of eye disease should be seen annually. 

However, if you’re experiencing any changes in your vision, you should call your eye doctor immediately. These changes may include:

  • Blurred vision (up close and/or far away)
  • Floaters or spots 
  • Circles or “halos” around lights
  • Double vision
  • Sudden changes in vision
  • Discharge from one or both eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Redness
  • Eye pain
  • Frequent headaches 
  • Sensitivity to light

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

When you visit either our Winfield Family Optometry or Andover Family Optometry locations you will be welcomed into a comfortable environment and given the care you deserve to manage your eye health and protect your vision. 

If you’re a new patient, we will begin by discussing your family and vision history to identify any possible concerns. 

Next, your doctor will use state-of-the-art technology to examine the inside and outside of your eye and determine how well you see.

Glasses or Contact Lens Prescriptions

If necessary, we will write you a glasses prescription to sure you’re seeing as clearly as possible. Make sure you visit our in-house optical and check out our glasses lines. We have lots of fashionable styles for all ages and the ability to fill your prescription quickly.
