Pre-Exam Testing

An eye tech will lead you through pre-testing before you see the doctor. During pre-testing your tech will ask you some basic questions about your current vision and overall health while also performing some basic pre-exam testing, results of which your doctor will review during the routine eye exam.
An Optomap Retinal Exam or traditional air puff tonometry test is used to examine your retina. Your retina can tell your doctor a deeper story about your overall health.
Performed for those patients with ongoing eye problems or age-related concerns to test for peripheral vision limitations and potential early stage signs of various eye diseases.
Vision test administered to determine the smallest letters you can read on a standardized eye chart (With and without your corrective lenses if applicable).

The Examination

The Doctor will review the information gathered by your tech and assess the results of your pre-exam testing. If you did not do the Optomap Retinal Exam your doctor will recommend pupil dilation at this time to evaluate the condition of your retina. Your doctor will perform a number of tests during your eye exam.
Examines the function of your eye muscles to determine if there is any weakness or problems with you ocular muscles. This test is pretty comfortable and only involves the normal movement of your eyes.
Your eye doctor must evaluate your eye alignment at distance and at near and your ability to converge an object as it is slowly moved towards your eyes. This test is also simple and takes less than a minute to perform.
This eye test measures your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. There is no discomfort for this test performed with the purpose of determining whether you have a need for glasses or contacts.
This test focuses both eyes simultaneously, checking for astigmatism and aiming for maximum vision balance using both eyes.
A low-powered microscope and high-intensity light source is used to examine your cornea, eyelids, iris, and all other front of the eye structures. Pupil dilation may be necessary for this test and there may be some direct contact with the whites of your eyes.
Each test performed will ensure protection, detection, and prevention of a wide range of eye diseases.
