Caring for your eyes should be a priority. Regular eye care and vision exams help to maintain your vision and eye health. At Kilgo Eye Care, we provide the optical care that you and your family need. We provide comprehensive annual eye exams but also offer tests for cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. If you need glasses, contacts, or prescription sunglasses, we can help you find the pair that is right for you at our Asheville location.
Annual Vision Exams
An annual vision exam is an opportunity for our doctors to assess the overall health of your eyes. It’s important that everyone in your family, especially children, to have their regular exams. Since children are still developing, any problems can be identified early on before they interfere with school, sports, or other activities. During the eye exam, our doctors will also use a series of standard tests to see how well your eyes are functioning.
Common Optical Tests
There are several optical tests that we commonly use. The first is a visual acuity test that determines how well someone can see both near and far distances. A refraction test indicates if someone is myopic (nearsighted), hyperopic (farsighted), or astigmatic. We also test your depth perception and peripheral vision. As part of your comprehensive optical exam, the doctors will test your color vision and perception. Your eye focusing ability is also tested. Identifying optical issues early on helps patients to better understand what visual limitations they may have. Understanding your limitations allows you to work around them, instead of letting them hold you back.
If it is determined that you need corrective lenses, we will assist you in determining which frame works best for you. We also provide different kinds of coatings for your eyeglasses like anti-reflective codeine that helps cut down on glare spots. If you are both farsighted and nearsighted you may benefit from bifocals or progressive lenses. At Kilgo Eye Care, we offer an array of styles, frames, and colors of affordable eyeglasses, so you can find the pair that best fits your lifestyle and preferences.
Contact Lens Exams
If you need lenses to see better but don’t want to glasses, then contact lenses may be the right option for you. There are many different types of lenses available today to address your needs. These include extended wear, disposables, rigid gas-permeable, and soft daily wear lenses. During your contact lens exam, precise measurements are taken to make sure you leave with the size and strength lens that’s right for you.
