DID YOU KNOW YOUR VISION BENEFITS MAY EXPIRE SOON?

A friendly reminder from your neighborhood eye doctor to use your family’s vision benefits* before they expire. Many vision plans do not roll over into the next year, so if you don’t use your vision benefits you may end up losing them. Your insurance plan may cover eye exams, as well as prescription glasses, prescription sunglasses, and contact lenses. You may save even more if you have a Flex Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA).

Your Next Eye Exam Visit

Your Yearly Eye Exam*

Annual eye exams are a recommended cornerstone for ensuring the health of your eyes. In addition to checking for changes in your vision and updating your prescription, your doctor* will also look at your overall eye health, internally and externally.
Prevention and early detection are keys to maintaining healthy eyes, as some eye health issues have no immediate symptoms but can still cause damage if left untreated. That’s why regular check-ups are critical.

Wellness starts with being well-informed

During your eye exam, the Independent Doctor of Optometry* at or next to Pearle Vision may create a personalized Eye Health and Wellness Report to summarize your visit. In addition to noting any problems, conditions or diseases found during your eye exam, your Independent Doctor of Optometry may provide you with a report outlining the next steps you should take. It’s a valuable tool some Independent Doctors of Optometry* offer to help you maintain and improve your eye health and vision.

What To Expect At Your Eye Exam*

You should never be kept in the dark about the health of your eyes and your vision. Yearly eye exams may last up to an hour or more depending on your individual needs and usually involve a variety of tests to make sure everything is looking great. The experienced eye care team will do everything they can to make the process effortless and eye opening.

Your optometrist may:

Ask you questions to get to know you, your eyes and your lifestyle better
Check your overall vision, color vision, depth perception and general eye health
Look for any indicators of potential vision problems
Dilate (temporarily enlarge) your pupils to see as much of your eye as possible, if needed- Dilated eyes are more sensitive to sunlight. Bring sunglasses to your eye exam.
Use an ophthalmoscope to illuminate and magnify the interior of your eye, a way to detect such conditions as cataracts, diabetes or hypertension
Perform a visual acuity test (reading letters on the eye chart) – the smaller the letters you can read, the better your visual acuity
Provide the option to use a digital retinal exam such as Optomap® to gain an incredible 200-degree view of your eye’s retina (the back of the eye). This improved scope aids your optometrist in diagnosis and prevention of various eye conditions and diseases, including macular degeneration, glaucoma and more

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I see an optometrist?When should I see an optometrist?

How do I know if my child needs glasses?How do I know if my child needs glasses?
1
Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
How does my vision change with age?How does my vision change with age?
1
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
Who can wear contact lenses?Who can wear contact lenses?
1
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.
What conditions can an optometrist treat?What conditions can an optometrist treat?
1
An optometrist can treat vision problems like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. An optometrist also often treats common eye problems like dry eye syndrome and eye infections. An optometrist can also treat chronic eye diseases such as glaucoma. Optometrists are trained to detect and diagnose all eye problems and eye diseases. Schedule an eye exam today if you are experiencing any problems with your eyes or your vision.
What is involved in an eye exam?What is involved in an eye exam?
1
An eye exam involves a series of simple but comprehensive tests that allow your optometrist to assess your vision and your eye health. Your optometrist will discuss the results of your eye exam with you and determine the right prescription to help you to see your best.
What is a refraction test?What is a refraction test?
1
Your optometrist uses a refraction test to determine your exact eyeglasses prescription. Through showing you a series of lens choices through a device called a phoropter, your optometrist determines the amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism that you have and the lenses needed to correct these vision problems.
How does an optometrist test my eyes?How does an optometrist test my eyes?
1
An optometrist uses several tests and tools to evaluate your eye health and your vision. Your eye exam usually will include a glaucoma test, a retinal screening, a visual field screening, an extraocular muscle test, and a refraction test. The results of these screenings and tests help your optometrist evaluate your vision and overall eye health.
Is a contact lens exam different than an eye exam?Is a contact lens exam different than an eye exam?
1
A normal, comprehensive eye exam will allow your optometrist to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses. During your contact lens fitting, detailed measurements of your eyes will be taken to determine the right contact lenses for you. There is an additional fee for a contact lens fitting and evaluation for all contact lens patients (both new and established patients). Schedule your eye exam today to have all of your questions about contact lenses answered.
What should I expect from the optometrist?What should I expect from the optometrist?
1
At your optometrist appointment, your optometrist usually will check your eye health and evaluate your vision.

What is the difference between an eye exam and a vision screening?What is the difference between an eye exam and a vision screening?
1
A comprehensive eye exam is administered by an optometrist and can detect not only vision problems but problems with eye health and general health as well. A vision screening is typically performed by a general medical practitioner such as a pediatrician or a nurse. While a vision screening can help identify vision issues, it can miss many important issues that a comprehensive eye exam can identify. This is why everyone is encouraged to get annual eye exams. Schedule your eye exam today.
How is vision measured?How is vision measured?
1
Vision is measured through a series of tests performed at an eye exam. Visual acuity is commonly measured by a series of two numbers, the first number representing the distance from which a person can clearly see something, and the second number representing the distance from which a person with normal vision can see that same thing. This measurement is typically obtained during an eye exam by having a person read from an eye chart with various sizes of letters.
Can eye exams detect other health issues?Can eye exams detect other health issues?
1
Eye exams can detect eye health issues such as glaucoma and cataracts. Eye exams can also detect general health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. This is why eye exams are an important part of health maintenance for everyone regardless of age or vision correction needs. Schedule your annual eye exam today.
