Eye Exams

Jackson Davenport’s specially trained optometrists take pride in providing comprehensive eye care exams to families in Summerville. Our exams evaluate your visual acuity and examine the complete health of your eyes, from front to back. Annual exams assist in the protection of your eyes, detecting any problem areas, and treating those problems at the earliest stage possible. It is important to note that eye and vision problems often do not have obvious symptoms, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist.

It is vitally important to maintain routine eye exams. The American Optometrist Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not. During a complete eye exam, one of our Jackson Davenport optometrists will determine any prescription needs you may have for eyeglasses or contact lenses and check your eyes for common eye diseases, and overall health.

Our eye exams can detect:

  • Early signs of serious health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and risk of stroke
  • Risk of future vision loss
  • Glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and detached retina

Eye exams include a consultation with your doctor to discuss any special needs or questions, followed by a routine eye examination with eye muscle movement tests, cover tests, vision tests, and more.

Good vision is essential for children to reach their full academic potential as roughly 80 percent of what children learn in school is presented visually. Jackson Davenport’s optometrists are experienced and trained in providing eye care to our younger patients. We recommend all children should have their eyes examined at age 3-4, and again at the start of school. According to the American Optometric Association, all children should have their eyes examined at 6 months of age, at age 3, and again at the start of school.
