Comprehensive

COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMINATION:

Having a comprehensive eye exam each year is the best way to enjoy good vision throughout your life. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.

Common Tests Used During Eye Exams:

Vision testing:

Vision testing involves making a person read standard sized letters at a specified distance. The doctors record the vision as a fraction e.g. 6/6 etc. The top number denotes the distance (in feet) at which the patient has been able to read the particular sized letter while the bottom number indicates the distance at which a normal person is expected to read the same letter. Near vision is tested separately in good illumination using special test charts held at normal reading distance. The testing is done with each eye separately. The doctors often test the vision using a pinhole. This gives an estimate of improvement possible with glasses. The patient in place of glasses cannot use the pinhole.

Retinoscopy:

This is a technique to obtain the objective measurement of your spectacle prescription. It can either be performed by an automated machine or it can be done manually with a retinoscope. The retinoscope shines a bright light into the eye, while the doctor is observing the reflection off your retina, he or she can determine your estimated prescription.

Refraction:

With help of reading of Automated Refractometer and Retinoscopy reading optometrist will do a proper subjective refraction over patient and depending on patients response he or she will give you, your glass prescription.

Cover Test:

During this test, your eye doctor will cover one eye at a time to detect any ocular deviation such as strabismus also known as an eye turn or lazy eye. Essentially, it measures how well your eye works together and helps detects problems including poor depth perception.

Slit Lamp:

During this test the doctor uses a special high power microscope to examine the structures of your eye, testing for infections or ocular diseases. You place your chin on a chin rest, while your eye doctor reviews your ocular structures through the microscope. This test is beneficial for detecting conjunctivitis and other common eye diseases as well as more serious ocular conditions such as cataracts and macular degeneration.

Tonometry:

This test is important to determine the eye pressure in the evaluaton for glaucoma. There are various ways to test the intraocular pressure (IOP) or eye pressure. Non-Contact Tonometry is typically performed by the technician. Many of you know this test as the “puff of air test.” Contact Tonometry is performed by your eye doctor by a probe that touches the eye. But because a numbing drop is used during this test, you won’t feel a thing. Infact, most patients prefer this method over the puff of air.

Dilated Fundus Exam:

During this test the doctor uses a special high power microscope to examine the structures of your eye, testing for infections or ocular diseases. You place your chin on a chin rest, while your eye doctor reviews your ocular structures through the microscope. This test is beneficial for detecting conjunctivitis and other common eye diseases as well as more serious ocular conditions such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
