A comprehensive eye exam involves several tests for eye health and visual clarity. Among the eye health tests is the “puff of air” test to measure your eye pressure looking for signs of glaucoma. Although this test isn’t painful, it can be irritating, causing some patients to feel uncomfortable. At M-Eye Vision, our eye doctor in Katy is using puff-less eye exam tests for glaucoma to eliminate the anxiety that the puff of air may cause. You can get the same high-quality testing with greater ease and comfort.
What is a Puff-Less Eye Exam?
By updating our eye equipment and technology, we can measure eye pressure and the thickness of the cornea in your eye without having to shoot a puff of air into your eye. Our new equipment is more comfortable to use and provides more accurate results, giving you a more positive eye exam experience.
The Importance of Testing Eye Pressure
Our optometrist tests the pressure of your eyes to detect early signs of glaucoma, an eye condition that can damage your optic nerve and lead to blindness. The symptoms of glaucoma aren’t always obvious in the early stages. By testing your eye pressure periodically, Dr. Han can catch the condition in its early stages, so you can get treated before suffering damage that leads to permanent vision loss.
Eye Exams Are Essential for Good Vision
Routine eye exams are key to preserving your vision. The quality of your vision often changes as you grow older. However, you may not notice these gradual changes on your own. Through routine eye exams, our eye doctor can detect irregularities in your vision, so you can get the corrective lenses you need to improve your vision. We can also detect signs of eye diseases early on when they are treatable to help preserve your vision. At M-Eye Vision, we offer eye exams for every member of your family.
