Optometry/Routine Eye Exams
Our experienced optometrists are trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage eye disorders that affect your eye health or vision. They will use a wide variety of testing and procedures to evaluate your eyes. A routine eye exam includes:
A complete eye health history, which consists of current visual state, visual complaints, general health and relevant family medical history.
- Tonometry to measure the eye’s intraocular pressure which is a test for glaucoma.
- Visual Acuity Tests that measure the sharpness of your vision.
- Pupil response to test the constriction or dilation of the pupil.
- Cover test to check how your eyes work together.
- A combination of lensometry, autorefraction , retinoscopy and refraction to determine your eyeglass prescription.
- Biomiocroscopy, which utilizes a slit lamp to get a highly magnified view of the structures of your eye to thoroughly evaluate your eye health and detect any signs of infection or disease.
- Ophthalmoscopy which examines the retinal tissue, blood vessels and nerve functions.
- Pupil dilating drops which enlarge your pupils to provide a better view for the most thorough evaluation of the eye's internal structures.
- Routine eye examinations are recommended yearly to diagnose and treat eye health symptoms and visual concerns.
