Consistent Eye Exams for Your Health
Eye exams are a window to your health. At Desert Eye Associates, we place a strong emphasis on consistent eye exams. We recommend scheduling a comprehensive eye exam once every 2 years so our team can thoroughly examine your eye health.
Even when you can see clearly, you may be more at risk for issues like dry eyes and age-related conditions like cataracts. For those with a higher risk of certain eye conditions, we may recommend additional eye exams.
During your visit, we will review your personal health, perform preliminary tests, and evaluate your eyes to help you find the right eye exam schedule.Request Appointment
Medical Eye Care
An eye exam is about more than just updating your prescription—it’s about getting a complete understanding of your eyes. A comprehensive eye exam can include several tests that help fully evaluate your vision and eye health.
Some of the conditions we test for and help manage include:
- Macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Dry eyes
- Allergic conjunctivitis
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
Annual Wellness Exams
Along with medically focused eye care, we also offer annual wellness exams for our patients. An annual wellness eye exam is an important part of your general health care. Think of it as your yearly physical for your eyes. It helps determine if you need vision correction and also screens for undiagnosed systemic eye problems that could lead to future health issues.
During the exam, we’ll conduct a range of tests and procedures to check if your eyes are in good health. These can be as simple as reading an eye chart or as complex as using advanced technology to get in-depth images of your eyes.
Diagnostic Testing for Eye Disease Management
Our offices around California are equipped with modern diagnostic technology to help our team identify and manage different eye diseases, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.
Our diagnostic technology includes:
- Retinal imaging
- Corneal topography
- Threshold visual field testing
- Ultrasound testing
- Laser interferometric biometry

Consistency Is Key
Consistent eye exams are a pillar of good eye health. They help us get a clear understanding of your eyes and recommend different treatments and tests based on your needs. From updating your prescription for new glasses to checking for early signs of eye disease, regular, comprehensive eye exams are a crucial first step.
