The Importance of an Optometrist
The founder of Eye Doc of Boca, Barry Ginsberg, O.D., is a family optometrist with the goal of helping people see clearer, at every angle. Our board certified optometrists are here to help treat and heal common vision disorders as well as ensure that your contact lenses or prescription for eyeglasses are up to date with your eyesight.
To keep your eyes healthy and maintain your vision, the American Optometric Association recommends a comprehensive eye exam once every two years for adults from ages 18 to 60, and annual exams for people age 61 and older. However, if you have a family history of eye problems, diabetes or high blood pressure, or have had an eye injury or surgery, you should have a complete exam conducted by an eye doctor every single year. The same applies to individuals that wear glasses or contact lenses.
An important part of the comprehensive eye exam is the dilatation process to look inside your eyes. Drops are placed in each eye to widen the pupil and allow more light to enter the eye. This gives our optometrists a clear view of important tissues at the back of the eye such as the retina, the macula, and the optic nerve which aids in identifying any potential health issues.
