Do I Need an Eye Exam for Glasses?
Eyeglasses must be tailored to fit your vision needs. An eye exam will help diagnose and vision disorders you might be currently living with. Eyeglasses can help correct vision disorders caused by refractive errors.
Refractive errors cause the cornea or lens of an eye to be misshapen. This impacts the eye's ability to focus light and produce a clear image. Refractive errors include:
- Astigmatism, which is a misshapen cornea
- Myopia, also known as nearsightedness
- Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness
- Presbyopia, which is farsightedness caused by degeneration of the eye with age
If you have any of these disorders, an eye exam can help determine whether you need glasses. Our optometrist can also determine the proper prescription to correct your vision.

During an eye exam, our eye doctor will look at the inner workings of your eye. She does so by dilating your eyes and looking inside for any abnormalities. She will also conduct vision tests to determine how vision is being impacted by your eye disorder.
