14. What is a comprehensive dilated eye exam?

A comprehensive dilated eye exam lets your eye care professional have a good look at the back of your eyes and examine them for any signs of damage or disease. Your eye care professional is the only one who can determine if your eyes are healthy and if you are seeing your best.

Early detection and treatment can help save your sight. So even if you are not experiencing vision problems, you should still get an annual eye exam.

This exam may not be part of an eye exam for new glasses or contacts. So be sure to ask your eye care professional about getting a comprehensive dilated eye exam.
