Our Rahway eye doctor is Dr. Michelle Y. Williams. Dr. Williams is an expert and highly-trained optometrist who enjoys working with patients of all ages. It is generally recommended that adults who have excellent eye health and physical health have comprehensive eye exams every one to two years. During a comprehensive eye exam your eyes will be tested to see if there are any vision refraction problems, or any developing eye diseases or disorders. Testing for eye diseases is very important because many serious eye diseases show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. For example, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. However glaucoma often has no warning symptoms in the early stages of the disease. Unfortunately, patients develop vision loss without even realizing that they have it. And vision loss to glaucoma, generally cannot be restored. For this reason, regularly scheduled testing for eye diseases is extremely important for eye health.
During our comprehensive eye exam you will receive a slit lamp examination and a dilated eye exam, as well as a refraction exam to check your vision. Our eye doctor will also check your eye pressure. During the refraction exam our eye doctor will be able to determine if you have any signs of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. If these problems are detected, our Rahway eye doctor will be able to write an eyeglass prescription or a contact lens prescription that will easily restore your excellent vision. During the second part of the eye exam you will be given medicated eye drops that will cause your eyes to dilate; this way our eye doctor will be able to see the inside of your eye. Eye diseases and disorders that will be looked for include: glaucoma; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; macular degeneration: retinal tears: and other diseases of the cornea, macula, and retina. If any eye problems are detected, our eye doctor will be able to help with treatment. If you need to be seen by a specialist in an area, our optometrist will be able to refer you to an ophthalmologist who will be able to provide you with advanced vision care.
