Dr. Brian Mathie and Dr. Bradley Kubis are available for comprehensive eye exams and medical eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eyes, and external eye diseases. Dr. Roholt currently does not accept new patients for routine eye exams. Dr. Roholt’s schedule is limited to new patients for surgery and medical consultations only.
How should I prepare for my eye consultation?
There is no preparation prior to the exam needed.
What should I expect during my eye consultation?
When having a routine exam at Roholt Vision we do a thorough examination looking at all elements of the eye. Expect your eyes to be dilated so that the physician can exam the health of the back of the eye. Due to dilation, it is recommended that patients have a driver with them. If that is not possible, we recommend that you have sunglasses with you to help with the sensitivity to light after dilation.
What types of tests will be performed during my consultation?
Typical testing includes a refraction to determine best visual acuity and intraocular pressure measurements (IOP). There are no additional tests done on this visit unless there is medical necessity to order and perform the test(s).
Why is a regular eye exam so important?
The doctor exams each eye for signs of serious eye issues such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration to name just a few. Many eye conditions can be detected before any symptoms are noticed. An eye exam can detect other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases as well as certain types of cancer.
