A Vision screening and an eye exam in Broomfield are both important tools used to maintain eye health. However, they’re very different and are done for very different reasons. Vision screenings are very basic tests while comprehensive eye exams are very thorough. You should get a comprehensive eye examination every year unless otherwise directed by your eye doctor at Sowash Optometry Group.
