Vision Wellness Exam

A routine eye exam, Dr. Fose or Dr. Strong will take into consideration patient history, work environment, special visual circumstances, and any patient concerns to determine any need for corrective lenses due to refractive errors such as:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia

Our doctors will also evaluate your overall eye health and visual function, including but not limited to:

  • Visual acuity
  • Eye tracking
  • Eye coordination
  • Eye alignment
  • Peripheral vision
  • Focusing ability
  • Eye pressure - NO air puffs! :)
  • Anterior structural health
  • Posterior structural health

Retinal Imaging is also recommended as part of your annual eye examination to assist the doctor in documenting and detecting early changes in ocular health.  Earlier detection means more treatment options and better outcomes.  Most insurance plans cover retinal imaging or photography with a small copay. 

"A picture is worth a thousand words." -- Dr. Fose

ver time, this can affect our eye health and vision performance. Computer Vision Syndrome symptoms include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Eye strain and discomfort

  • Neck and/or shoulder pain

The doctors at Blue Valley Vision of Overland Park can develop a treatment plan to help relieve your symptoms. This may include specialty eyewear, light vision therapy, or adjusting patient behavior while working with technology.

Children:

It is important to start children with annual eye exams by age 5 in order to improve their educational experience and screen for any potential health issues.  Many functional vision issues go un

detected and can make learning more difficult for a child.  School screenings and regular physician physicals do not monitor for these conditions.
