Do you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? Yearly eye exams are important for everyone. This is because eye exams check for more than just visual acuity. They also check for common eye conditions such as Glaucoma, macular degeneration, and systemic conditions.REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT

Your Comprehensive Eye Exam
At Capital Eye Medical Group, a comprehensive eye exam involves testing your visual acuity and checking for common eye diseases. When you first walk into Dr. Mitra Ayazifar’s office, you will be brought to a room with a few pieces of equipment. In this room, we will test your eyes for glaucoma. We will use a retinoscopy to get a baseline for your eyeglass or contact prescription if you wear corrective lenses.
Eye Exam Scheduling
Children, adults and seniors should schedule yearly eye exams. If you have a chronic disease, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes, or an eye condition, like glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration, more frequent eye exams may be needed.REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT
