At Eye Care Associates, 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 vision 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, Dr. Daniel R. Hardin will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your 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. Dr. Hardin 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 Richardson optometrist provides regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Hardin 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, Dr. Hardin may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Richardson office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral 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 Dr. Hardin to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Richardson optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Hardin 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 the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Hardin reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (972) 231-9595 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

I have been going to this establishment for a few years now and have seen both Dan and Tara Hardin. Both are highly professional and thorough yet very personable. The optical dispensary is staffed by very friendly and helpful staff members that have made sure that every need I have had was taken care of. I could not recommend this palce any higher for your eye care needs.
