Comprehensive Eye Exams in Somerville, NJ
We want our Somerville community to see the beauty in all things, which is why Dr. Timko always uses state-of-the-art technology and tailored solutions to thoroughly examine each patient’s eyes and vision.
What Makes an Eye Exam “Comprehensive?”
A comprehensive eye exam is more than just a vision screening. Dr. Timko will use advanced diagnostic technology to examine your eyes and the delicate structures within them. This helps us catch eye conditions even before they present any symptoms. We’ll also use this time to update your vision prescription to make sure your eyewear gives you the comfortable clarity you deserve.
During this time, Dr. Timko will also get to know you personally so that she can personalize your eye care to your needs. Whether you have a job that requires significant amounts of screen time or hobbies that require freedom from your glasses, we’ll learn all about your lifestyle and preferences to find solutions that work for you.
Why Are Regular Eye Exams So Important?
A lot can happen to your eyes in a few months, let alone a year, and these changes affect more than just your vision. By staying up to date on your eye exams, Dr. Timko is able to catch different eye diseases early. As a result, she can take prompt action to preserve your eyes and sight while protecting them from further damage.
Our Specialized Eye Exams
Patients of all ages and health concerns require different approaches to their exams. A standard eye exam — although comprehensive — may not be enough for patients with a specific condition. Our specialty eye exams pay special attention to different eye conditions and their associated signs, symptoms, and concerns.
Contact Lens Exam
If you wear or are interested in wearing contacts, a contact lens exam is required in addition to your routine check-ups. Through in-depth testing, we’ll evaluate your prescription and front-of-eye health and take measurements of your eyes. Using this information, we’ll find the right pair of contacts for your eyes and ensure they have the right fit.
Pediatric Eye Exam
Using child-friendly technology, Dr. Timko can examine the eyes of our younger patients to look for age-specific conditions. She enjoys learning about her younger patients, including their favorite things to do, so she can find them a solution for clear vision and healthy eyes that won’t disrupt their daily activities.
Diabetic Eye Exam
Having diabetes can increase your chances of developing certain eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy. To avoid irreparable damage, we offer diabetic eye exams to give special attention to your eye health and the areas of your eye that are affected by diabetes: the retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels.
