Full Eye Examination

A full eye exam includes comprehensive vision testing to determine your current prescription for glasses, and a thorough eye health check including diagnostic tests for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Although you might have a clear vision, only a complete and regular eye exam can assess the health of your eyes. The following information will help you better understand the relevance of the different aspects of the optometric exam.

  • Case History: Medications, personal medical history, family history of ocular and systemic diseases, any visual concerns (frequency, duration, and severity).
  • Visual Acuity: Your ability to see small details clearly at both near and far distances is measured.
  • Refraction: The presence and degree of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (decreased vision due to corneal or lens irregularities) and presbyopia (diminished focussing ability due to age) are identified and the appropriate prescription determined.
  • Binocular Testing: The alignment or coordination of the eyes is important. Good muscle coordination allows stereoscopic vision for good depth perception.
  • Tonometry: Measurement of the inter-ocular fluid pressure in the eye; one of the important tests in the detection of glaucoma.
  • Visual Fields: Peripheral vision assessment will assist in the detection of glaucoma, neurological, and retinal diseases. Specialized computerized visual field testing may be required.
  • Ocular Health Assessment: A thorough health assessment of the structures of the eye will be performed allowing the detection of conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and changes due to systemic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol. A dilated fundus exam, for which drops are required, may be recommended for a more comprehensive retinal examination.
  • Retinal photography: Photography allows your Optometrist to keep a permanent recorded image of your retina for later comparison.
  • OCT: Optical Coherence Tomography: A non-invasive imaging of the retina that shows a cross-section and measures its thickness to help diagnose retinal issues such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.

We also provide pre and post operative examinations for laser corrective surgery. Our office has provided this service for patients from Herzig Eye Institute, TLC Laser Eye Center, Focus Eye Center and Bochner Eye Institute.
