Routine Eye Exam in Harlingen, TX

Routine eye exams play an important role in maintaining not only your ocular health but also your overall health. During a routine eye exam many patients are able to update their glasses prescription which allows them to order new glasses or contact lenses. In addition to helping update any prescriptions, routine eye exams can help mitigate damage to vision caused by a serious eye disease such as glaucoma. Many vision threatening eye conditions are difficult to detect on your own. During your routine eye exam our eye doctors will conduct a series of tests with specialized equipment that can identify the early warning signs of vision threatening diseases. Early detection is vital in protecting your vision which is why routine eye exams in Harlingen are a good idea.

At Gulf Coast Eye Institute, we offer a routine eye examination that includes checking all parts of the eye. Your eye specialist will start by looking at the outer parts of your eyes followed by checking your eye muscles, performing eye reflexes, checking eyesight, and looking inside your eye to check the inner structures. Your doctor will advise you on how to maintain your eye health. In case of any abnormality, you will be informed, and the treatment will be started. Schedule your routine eye exam today.
