Providing Comprehensive Eye Exams in Americus, Montezuma, and Leesburg, GA

What is a comprehensive eye examination? It is more than just checking for glasses and/or contact lenses (although those are part of a comprehensive eye examination). At Regional Eye Center, our eye doctors are also concerned about the overall health of your eyes and your body. A comprehensive eye examination helps us to monitor these. Our eye doctors examine patients of all ages, from babies to older adults and everyone in between. Depending on a person's age, medical history, and other risk factors, we may tailor the eye exam tests.

Visual Field Test

A visual field test measures the range of your peripheral or “side” vision to assess whether you have any blind spots (scotomas), peripheral vision loss, or visual field abnormalities.


Cover Test

In this test, the doctor will ask you to focus on an object. The doctor will then alternate covering one eye at a time. This allows our doctor to determine if your eyes are working together. In children, this can help detect a lazy eye
