What are Eye Exams Like?
When you visit our office for your exam, you will undergo a standard ophthalmic exam designed to measure the refraction and visual acuity of your eyes. Your doctor will inquire about your medical and ocular history and any noticeable eye problems.
Visual acuity (vision) is determined in each eye using the Snellen Chart. People with normal vision can read these letters. During a refraction test, the doctor puts several lenses in front of the eyes to determine if glasses are needed. During your visual acuity test, the doctor will ask you to read letters from the Snellen Chart, placed at a distance of 20 feet away. Eye movement, pupillary reactions and peripheral vision are also assessed.
What happens during a Eye Exam?
During your thorough eye exam, the doctor will check for abnormalities including color blindness, glaucoma, retinal changes, optic nerve abnormalities, strabismus, corneal abrasion, cataracts, corneal ulcers, diabetic retinopathy, amblyopia, macular degeneration, and corneal infection. The majority of eye diseases and abnormalities can be effectively treated if detected early, so it is important to make sure you visit us annually for your eye exam.
