Maintaining healthy eyes is the best way to prevent eye diseases and other conditions from threatening your sight. Healthy vision relies not just on the treatment of specific issues, but on regular eye care visits that aim to identify potential vision problems before they advance. Common problems like glaucoma, AMD and diabetic retinopathy don’t always manifest symptoms in the early stages, but have a much better outcome when they are caught early.
At Kirk Eye Center, we are committed to helping each of our patients protect their vision for a lifetime. If you are looking for a comprehensive eye care provider you can trust in the Loveland, Windsor or Fort Collins areas, call us today at (970) 744-2566 or complete the form on this page to schedule an appointment.
Frequency of Eye Care Exams
One of the most critical elements of achieving and maintaining optimal ocular health is to establish a consistent general eye care regimen. By assessing your eyes regularly through routine exams and check-ups, Drs. Kirk and Colvin can help address existing issues and prevent future vision-related conditions.
Dr. Kirk believes in beginning a healthy eye care routine at an early age, and recommends a child’s first eye exam at age 4.
The recommended frequency of your eye care appointments will depend on your unique situation regarding:
- Your previous treatments or diagnoses
- Your family history
- Your health
- Your age
Your First Eye Care Appointment
If you are visiting Kirk Eye Center for the first time, bring your most recent pair of glasses and/or your contact lens prescription with you to your initial exam. During your appointment, you will undergo a comprehensive eye evaluation which will determine:
- Your current eye health
- Focusing ability
- Eye coordination and muscle function
- Eye pressure
- Risk factors for future eye problems
- Your visual acuity
Your medical history will also be reviewed to identify any conditions that may affect your eye health. Issues such as diabetes, heart disease and thyroid problems can all influence your vision.
