Eye Exam

When we conduct one of our comprehensive eye exams, the first portion of the appointment consists of evaluating the health of your eyes. Our optometrist uses a specialized magnifying glass to look into your eyes. This helps us detect issues like diabetic retinopathy. We use a machine that blows air into your eye to check the pressure in your eyes. If you have an abnormal reading, it could indicate glaucoma. During your eye exam, we also look for signs of cataracts and other issues. 

Vision Exams

The vision portion of your eye exam evaluates how well you can see. Our optometrist will ask you to look into a pair of lenses. We ask you to read the letters one line at a time, so we can determine the extent of well or poorly you can see. Through this test, we can tell what your prescription for contacts or glasses is. Next, we evaluate your vision for astigmatism. We ask you to look through lenses that show you two different images. You have to decide which one looks clearer. From this information, we can identify if you have a refractive error and the extent of it. Often, we can establish whether you have an issue with your eyes based on your results.

Contact Lenses Exam 

If you need any type of vision correction, our optometrist will give you a prescription for corrective eyewear. We use the prescription we determined for you during your vision analysis. We even incorporate whether you have astigmatism or not because in severe cases, you may need to have specialized contact lenses.

During this portion of the exam, our optometrist will have you look through a specialized device. This machine will determine the dimensions of your eyes. Once we know these sizes, our optometrist pairs you with contacts. You may also get fitted for eyeglasses at this time. The eyeglass fitting consists of our optometrist determining the dimensions of your face, so your glasses fit comfortably.
