Our comprehensive eye exams include a thorough prescription and health evaluation. Both of these are important to detect vision problems; since many problems can occur without you even realizing it.
The exam begins with a patient history. During this history you will need to know your family's history on eye conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration, etc. You will also need to know all medications you are currently taking since some medications can cause side effects to your vision.
Your acuity will be checked. Your acuity is how well you are able to see with each eye with or without glasses or contact lenses. You will be asked to read letters at both far and near to determine your distance and reading acuities.
Health checks will also be done such as; evaluation for glaucoma, cataracts, retinal health, dry eye syndrome,and internal and external eye health. The exam also tests for, color vision, depth perception, eye movements, peripheral vision, and any others which may be required based on your history or the doctor's recommendation.
The refraction will also be determined during your eye exam. The refraction is the procedure needed to determine your prescription for your glasses or contact lenses. You will not be dilated to determine your prescription, however dilation may be necessary for other health related conditions.
Once all of the tests are complete and if you need an updated prescription, our experienced staff will assist you in picking out appropriate frames and lenses.
