At Eagle View Eye Care, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able to provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at risk or not.
During an eye exam, your doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health.
Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Your doctor will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Lake Lanier optometrist provides regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Your eye doctor will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, your optometrist may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Sugar Hill office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, and responsiveness to light.
Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable your local eye doctor to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eye's ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Sugar Hill optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry.
Your doctor evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure.
After completing these short tests, your doctor reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you.

"My regular physician told me I am at risk for glaucoma (elevated eye pressure) so I got recommended to come here. The staff here made it well worth it, they did an abundance of checkups and got various base levels to really make sure everything was alright with my eyes. I had some questions and the doc made sure to do more than just answer my questions, with all the valuable information given to me I literally left feeling like an eye doctor myself.. would definitely suggest coming here"

"Dr. Black and his team are outstanding!! From ease of setting up the appointment, verifying coverage/costs, getting me in, seen, and out. Whole process was a breeze! Clean office, they wipe everything, Doc and staff are very nice and helpful. Had many questions about my eyes as it's been some time since I've needed new contacts. Dr Derek Black listened to my concerns, asked questions to make sure he best understood, and offered highly tailored contact reccomendations with many facts and knowledge. I also had many questions abt glaucoma, pink eye, and more even though I am not currently at risk. Him and his team not only really know there stuff, they have all the advanced testing capabilities, and were very helpful and kind, even joking - I know my questions got a bit annoying and irrelevant but they were very professional and helpful throughout - this is much appreciated. Usually dont leave reviews for optometrists haha but I highly, highly reccomend going to see them!!"
