Eye Exams – What Happens When You’re in Our Chair

We perform a series of tests needed to evaluate your visual acuity and determine the overall health and condition of a patient’s eyes. Additionally, some diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy have no early stage symptoms and can only be detected during a comprehensive eye exam.

Tests performed generally include:

  •        Refraction (measures visual acuity)
  •        Dilated Exam (determines overall health and condition)
  •        Tonometry (measures the pressure inside the eye)
  •        Color
  •        Binocular Vision
  •        Binocular Indirect
  •        Slit Lamp
  •        Stereopsis
  •        Visual Field
  •        Pachymetry
  •        Fundas Photography
  •        Amsler
  •        Ophthalmoscopy
  •        Contrast Sensitivity

Children’s Eye Exams

Children’s vision care is essential to their development. More than 75% of what a child learns in school is taught visually beginning with the very basics of reading and written communications. The importance of visual acuity cannot be over stated when it comes to the academic growth of a child.

Before the appointment, we recommend you prepare your child by letting them know that they will be asked questions by the doctor about what they are seeing. Explain that eye drops won’t hurt and reassure them that you will be allowed to stay with them during the exam. Include here other procedural items that may frighten a child such as looking through the equipment. If you allow it, you can state here that the parent may remain with the child at all times.

Early eye exams for children are extremely important because vision problems often are related to poor performance in school. Research suggests that antioxidants and other important nutrients may reduce your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Until you reach your 20s, your eyes let in way more damaging light than older eyes.
