Dr. Soto is a highly regarded optometrist in Portland who welcomes patients of all ages into her optometry practice. If you cannot remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam you will want to be sure to make an appointment to see our optometrist in Portland soon. Additionally, you will also want to check with our eye doctor to see how often your child should come in for periodic eye exams. The actual time that should elapse between eye exams for each person is dependent on their age, current eye health, and medical health. Our eye doctor will be able to let you know precisely how often each member of your family should come in for eye exams. Eye exams are very important because there are many eye diseases which show no symptoms in the early stages. If diagnosed early, these eye diseases can be treated and vision loss can be prevented. However, if many of these eye diseases are left to progress, permanent and irreversible vision damage may occur. Our optometrist in Portland can screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders during your periodic eye exam.
During a comprehensive eye exam your eyes will be screened for a wide range of eye diseases. Our optometrist in Portland will check for: glaucoma; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; cataracts; dry eye; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If it is determined that you need advanced treatment for any of these vision problems our optometrist will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist in the area who specializes in your area of need. If during our eye exam our doctor determines that you need to have additional vision testing, she will be able to perform additional diagnostic testing, such as optic nerve imaging and computerized visual field testing. This testing will only be done if it is indicated as needed by early findings. Our eye doctor will also be able to provide you with a complete contact lens exam and fitting. During this testing, your eyes will also have measurements taken so that your contact lens prescription will be written for lenses which will fit your eyes precisely. If contact lenses do not fit your eyes correctly, damage can be done to the cornea. For an appointment to meet with our top-notch optometrist, contact us today.
