We know it is important to be thorough. That's why we offer comprehensive eye examinations that will uncover hidden, symptomless, potentially sight-threatening eye disorders and diseases that are not found by a simple vision screening.
Medical History: Since the eyes are part of the body, they can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions. We must know about your general health and your medication including non-prescription medication prior to treatment.
Neurological Screening: Evaluating the way your eyes and pupil work together and individually can tell us if the nerves and muscles controlling your eyes are working properly or require more investigation.
The Refraction: Both Automated and doctor-controlled instruments, plus the patient-directed methods are used to obtain the best glasses prescription for you.
Visual Field: Your ability to see to the side and above and below will be tested with computers, if and when necessary.
Eye Health Testing: This takes up most of the examination. The microscope is used, the pupils are often dilated and the inside of the eye is viewed using proper instruments. We can detect early signs of glaucoma, cataracts, hypertension, even diabetes.
Consultation: All patients, parents or guardians will be provided with an explanation of the findings, their significance, the treatment plans and other options. Your questions will be answered and the solution to any difficulties will be reviewed.
