Eye exams at the Eye Center of Virginia are an evaluation of your eye health. It provides a screening for common visual complications or problems based on your risks and concerns.

The reason an eye exam is important for your visual health is the potential to catch problems at an early stage.

Early detection is essential for vision care because it allows Dr. Schultz to develop a long-term plan to limit the risks to your eyes from an ailment.
An eye exam starts with a discussion with an optometrist. We ask about your current vision, changes to your vision and your medical history. We also discuss any medications you take for your health. Since eye care relates directly to your physical health and certain ailments may impact your vision care, we ask about your medical health. For example, diabetes may result in diabetic retinopathy or related eye conditions. By discussing your medical health, we identify potential risks to your eyes.
