Charles Brownlow, O.D., a practicing optometrist for 27 years and executive vice president of the Wisconsin Optometric Association, remembers one such exam a few years ago.

"I'd been seeing this particular patient -- let's call him 'Joe' -- for about 15 years," says Dr. Brownlow, "and one morning he came in for his regular eye exam.
...
"After reviewing his chart and listening to his symptoms, I knew something was wrong and that we had to take action," recalls Dr. Brownlow. "Thankfully, my education and experience paid off that day. Countless other patients have also benefited over the years when visiting an optometrist because they believe they have a routine vision problem, but leave the office with a far different diagnosis."
Dr. Brownlow moved quickly. He referred his patient to a general physician, who sent him to a specialist. The diagnosis: carotid artery disease, in which fatty deposits build up on artery walls where they can trigger fatal blood clots.
"Joe had a major blockage in the carotid artery on one side of his neck," says Dr. Brownlow, and the blockage was cutting down on the blood supply to the brain and eye.
...
"Regular eye exams are extremely important, because they can uncover major health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure," says Dr. Brownlow. "But a periodic eye exam is also necessary to assess the overall health of the eyes, to determine whether or not the patient needs vision correction with lenses or just to reassure you that all is fine."
According to Dr. Brownlow, the typical eye exam lasts about 30 minutes and begins with a case history, in which the doctor reviews the patient's medical background and asks about past vision problems.
...
"I think the best way to judge that is to think about how you feel when it's over," says Dr. Brownlow.
...
"Sure, the technology continues to accelerate every year, and both optometrists and ophthalmologists are now equipped with more tools than ever before," says Dr. Brownlow.
