When you visit Eye Physicians of Northampton for a comprehensive eye exam our ophthalmologists and optometrists will evaluate the health of your eyes, explaining each procedure as we proceed. A complete exam includes testing vision with an eye chart, and evaluating the front and back portions of the eye with special microscopes. During our exams we evaluate all patients for the presence of sight-threatening eye diseases including cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
Comprehensive eye exams may also include measurements for glasses to address focusing errors such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia and astigmatism. If necessary, the doctor will prescribe glasses/contacts or update your current eyeglass prescription. Regular and thorough eye exams conducted by qualified and experienced ophthalmologists and optometrists are essential for maintaining healthy eyes and diagnosing or preventing eye disease.
Eyeglass prescriptions expire every two years, if a recent refraction (or measurement for glasses) is not done, your eyeglass prescription may be expired and an optician will not be able to make you new glasses until an updated prescription is given. Regular eye examinations with a refraction will ensure that you receive comprehensive eye care and accurate glasses prescriptions on a bi-yearly basis.

Contact lens prescriptions expire every year, if a recent contact lens check is not done, your contact lens prescription may be expired and you will not be able to order additional supplies of contact lenses until an updated prescription is given and the lenses are evaluated on your eyes.
