Eye Exam

The vision and eye health assessment at our office can be broken down into two parts.

Part One: Vision Examination

The first part is the vision examination. It involves the use of lenses to determine the best prescription and vision possible for each individual patient.

Vision Examination

Specific testing involved

  • Complete medical and ocular history
  • Visual acuity (sight testing)
  • Binocular vision evaluation (how the 2 eyes work together)
  • Refraction (precise prescription determination)
  • Internal and external ocular examination with pupil dilation if required (for the detection of eye diseases and signs of possible systemic diseases such as: hypertension, diabetes, macular degeneration, and glaucoma)
  • Eye pressure evaluation
  • Final diagnosis, recommendation and prescription

Part Two: Eye Health Examination

Second, is the eye health examination. Having 20/20 vision is no guarantee of having healthy eyes. This portion involves diagnostic eye health tests that allow the doctor to evaluate the present and future status of the eyes. The necessary follow up along with further testing required is the basis of preventative eye care. A prescription will be issued so that individual eye wear recommendations can be made.
