What to Expect at an Optometry Visit
During your visit, we will ask about any eye concerns or health issues you’ve experienced during the past year that might affect your eye health. We will check your vision using an eye chart, test eye pressure using a tonometer for glaucoma screening, and perform vision measurements including a field of vision test to look at the quality of your peripheral vision.
We also check your eye movement and coordination and do a visual exam to make sure the external parts of your eyes are healthy. We use special equipment to look at the back of your eye, the retina, to make sure that this critical part of your eye is in good shape, especially for diabetics. While checking the retina, we will also check your optic nerve and make sure it's healthy.
Corrective Lens Prescriptions
If you need glasses or contacts, our eye exam will include a discussion of your correction options. We will also conduct thorough testing to determine the appropriate prescription strength to provide clear vision.
