When you visit us for an exam, we’ll first have a no-pressure conversation about your medical history and current health. We are thorough so we are fully aware of any issues you may be experiencing and your goals.
Once we’ve carefully reviewed your case history and anything that may affect your individual vision needs, we’ll move forward with the exam.
Once we understand your ocular health on a verbal level, we’ll use specially designed equipment to examine your eyes.
We’ll use a digital Snellen chart to test your visual acuity, or how clear your vision is. Blurred vision or difficulty reading the letters on the chart may indicate a refractive error, such as nearsightedness. If you’re having trouble seeing clearly, then we’ll then use a phoropter to determine what power of lens is needed to give you clear vision.
Beyond testing your vision, we’ll also evaluate your eye muscle coordination, movement, and peripheral and binocular vision. We will also examine the tissues and structures in your eyes to test for common eye diseases, such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.
Your eyes are windows to your health, so comprehensive eye exams can also uncover underlying health issues. Diligence with your ocular health is paramount in protecting your vision.
After your exam, we’ll be completely transparent with you with anything you may need to know. If you need corrective lenses, we’ll help you find a stylish pair that you love.
