Eye & Vision Exams In Monroe

Eye and Vision Exams Are Essential to Our Health

We rely on our eyes to see our family members, the world, and to perform daily tasks. Unfortunately, many people do not realize the importance of maintaining good eye health. Routine eye exams are essential to not only promote great vision, but also to detect a range of problems that can negatively affect your health. Here at Monroe Family Eyecare, we urge residents in Monroe, NY, and the surrounding areas to schedule yearly eye exams with an optometrist. 


Importance of Eye Exams and Vision Exams

Optometrists encourage people to have eye and vision exams because they do more than checking vision, they allow an optometrist to detect the warning signs of common health issues related to the eye. Many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts, do not exhibit early symptoms and can significantly impact your vision or health before becoming noticeable. Discovering, preventing, and treating eye diseases can preserve your eyesight and slow or stop the progression of eye disease, several of which have no cure.

What to Expect from an Eye Exam

Our optometrists in Monroe will conduct a series of tests to check both your eye health and sight. One of the most basic ways we examine vision is through the Snellen eye chart. This part of the exam is when we measure your visual acuity by having you look at a series of letters. If you do not have 20/20 vision, your eye doctor may test for myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

We will also take a closer look at your eye to determine if you are suffering from any eye diseases. Depending on our findings, your doctor may recommend corrective eyewear, prescription medicine, or surgery. In some cases, such as diabetes, we may suggest a few lifestyle choices to help improve your eyesight and prevent damage to the eye. We will go over the best treatment option for your needs with you at the end of the exam.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    Dr. Siegal takes a lot of time with each patient. You don't feel like you are just a 'chart'. He explains everything and answers all questions thoroughly. His staff is always friendly and professional. This time I was getting glasses also and his staff took time to help me make the right decisions and also offered helpful opinions.

    Great experience! I work in the city and get home late, so having Saturday hours and some late weekday hours is so helpful. Everyone was very nice and answered any questions I had. Definitely coming back for annual eye exams.

    The whole experience was great. Everyone I dealt with was so pleasant & helpful. Won’t go anywhere else now!
