“Checking The Health of Both The Front & Back Of Your Eyes”
A comprehensive eye exam at Boise Family Eye Center will check both the health of the front of your eyes as well as the back of your eyes. The key point to keep in mind about a comprehensive eye exam is that it’s much more than just making sure you can see clearly. When you consider the fact that everyday your eyeballs are exposed to countless environmental factors like dust, metal and viral infections (like pink eye)- it’s important to keep your eyes as healthy as possible.
(Foreign body removal is a service offered by Boise Family Eye Center – emergency hours are also available for patients.)
One thing you can do to keep their eyes as health as possible is to get your eyes dilated during a comprehensive eye exam. Eye dilation is included at no additional costs to patients when they receive a comprehensive eye exam at Boise Family Eye Center. Though some would consider it inconvenient – it’s a simple, nonintrusive method of getting a rare glimpse inside the body. The special eye drops used to dilate patients’ eyes allow Optometrists to view the full field of your retinas thus allowing for a good look at the health of the back of the eyeball.
Through the use of a microscope that good look allows your eye doctor to detect such conditions as diabetes, eye tumors, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment, vasculitis and others.
