Fort Worth Eye Exams

Eye Exams

Routine eye exams are important, regardless of your age or physical health. During a complete eye exam at Fort Worth Eye Center, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Complete eye exams are not just for updating your prescription. During your exam with us at Fort Worth Eye Center, you will receive a complete thorough exam of the eye and visual system.  We will assess not only your prescription, but also the health of the eye front to back to screen for conditions like keratoconus, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

In addition to receiving a new prescription for glasses and/or contact lenses, you will also receive an overall health assessment of the eye, binocular vision to verify both eyes are working together equally, and a minor neurological assessment. The eye is an extension of the brain and because of this, many neurological and systemic conditions can manifest in the eye without any other signs or symptoms.

Diabetic Eye Exams

Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in adults. This is the case for both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. This is a growing problem as the number of people living with diabetes increases, so does the number of people with impaired vision. Diabetes can lead to diabetic retinopathy. In its early stages, you may not notice any signs, symptoms, or changes in vision. In advanced stages, it could lead to rapid changes in prescription, retinal detachments, glaucoma, or even blindness. Early detection is key so make sure you schedule your exam today! 

Contact Lens Exams

Contrary to popular belief, contact lens eye exams are not the same thing as comprehensive eye exams.  If you wear or are interested in wearing contact lenses, you will need a contact lens exam in addition to a comprehensive eye exam.  Dr. Lam will perform specific tests during the contact lens exam to measure and evaluate your vision with contact lenses.  To learn more about this type of eye exam and our contact lens options, click here.

Screening and Imaging

Fort Worth Eye Center is committed to using the latest technology to provide you with the most advanced eye care and the most comfortable experience.  Recently, Dr. Lam introduced the new iCare EIDON widefield TrueColor confocal fundus imaging system into his eye exams.  This piece of techcology provides unsurpassed image quality and a live view of the retina all without the need for dilation!  Additional features of the iCare EIDON include:

“I had an exceptional experience at Dr. Lam’s office. My glasses broke and I was needing new glasses that same day. He and the wonderful young lady at the reception office took the time to help me. He stayed after hours, when it was already closing time, to work and prepare my new glasses. I definitely felt in good hands because of their professionalism, knowledge, and care. For sure we will be coming back.”

Common Eye Conditions

They say the eye is the window to the soul, but in reality, the eye is the window to the rest of the body. Many systemic diseases can cause intermittent complications to the eye or can lead to life long vision loss.
