Let's talk Eye Exams

An eye examination is a full, comprehensive assessment of your vision and your eye health.

What is involved in an eye exam?

  • A review of your general family and personal health history
  • A thorough examination of your eyes, both exteriorly and interiorly, for signs of eye disease. This can sometimes show signs of general health problems such as diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Eye pressure test to check for glaucoma in adults
  • Recording your level of vision at near and far distances, without glasses
  • Tests to determine the presence of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, depth perception problems and in people over age 40, a test to check for presbyopia (an age-relate condition that affects reading vision)
  • A check of eye coordination and eye muscle function to be certain the eyes are working well together
  • Our thorough exam includes a discussion of the exam's findings and any treatment prescribed, as well as personal advice about such matters as good vision on the job, eye safety, maintaining eye health, prescription lens choices and environmental factors, such as lighting, affecting a person's eyes and vision.
  • OCT scan if requested or advised
  • Visual field exam if advised
