Do you see clearly? That’s great but it doesn’t necessarily mean your eyes are in perfect health. Only a comprehensive eye exam performed by a qualified Optometrist can determine this. Thanks to state of the art equipment such as retinal cameras, various ocular diseases can be detected and treated.
Visual Acuity Test
Measures the eye’s ability to focus clearly at various distances.
Visual Field Test
Visual field testing checks for compromised or lost peripheral vision, often undetected by the patient. This is a critical test for diabetics, hypertensives and those with high prescriptions or macular degeneration.
Fundus Photo (Retinal Imaging)
High quality digital photo of the retina, the surface tissue at the back of the eye which is required for sight. This image will be used for future comparisons and early detection of defects or diseases, some of which may have no symptoms until vision is permanently lost.
Determines the corrective power required to improve your vision to its best possible clarity. The presence of myopia, hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism and/or presbyopia is determined and appropriate eyeglasses or contacts can be prescribed.
Measures the internal pressure of the eye; essential to diagnosing glaucoma.
Measures the curvature of the cornea. A keratometer is used to determine the ideal shape (base curve) of your contact lenses as well as screen for certain corneal diseases.
Determines the exact shape of the front surface of your eye which helps diagnose corneal diseases and fit contact lenses.
Dilated Retinal Exam
Using dilating drops the Optometrist expands the size of the pupil. This allows a better view of the inside of the eye, providing important information for your health care. In fact, many holistic issues like hypertension, diabetes and some cancers are detected during an eye exam.
Evaluates the eyes' ability to work together. Besides seeing clearly, eyes must track and team well to create 3D images and comfortable vision during reading, sports and general activity.
