Are Digital Eye Exams the Best Eye Exams?

Digital Eye Exam vs Traditional Eye Exam

DR 37003553 digital eye exam

In this time of rapid technological innovation, many people think that new digital technology has got to be better than “old school” or “traditional” anything. Not so with digital eye exams vs. traditional eye exams. The quality of the eye exam is always determined by the expertise of the eye doctor who is using the instruments.

No matter what tools or technology is used for an eye exam, the optometrist has to interpret the objective measurements to come up with the best prescription and/or treatments for each unique person. And digital eye exams do not eliminate the patient’s need to pick between two different views.

Our eyes send the information on to our brain and bodies and that’s where good vision is created. Our eye exam is a comprehensive vision exam that evaluates your entire visual system — eyes, brain and body — to determine the best solutions for total vision, not just 20/20 eyesight.
