What to Expect During Your Exam

Our eye examination is exceptionally thorough and is designed to be a comprehensive checkup of the visual system and overall eye health.

1

Visual Acuity Test

The first thing we do is measure the sharpness of your vision using both projected and small hand-held eye charts.

2

Color Blindness Screening

We use a variety of color-based charts to rule out any color deficiencies in your vision.

3

Cover Test

This a very simple test to check how your eyes work together. The doctor will cover each eye and examine the uncovered eye.

4

Visual Field Test

Most likely, your doctor will want to check your peripheral vision to detect for blind spots that may be caused by more serious diseases or trauma.

5

Retinoscopy & Refraction

Most likely, your doctor will want to check your peripheral vision to detect for blind spots that may be caused by more serious diseases or trauma.

6

Pupil Dilation

This is the best way to examine the structure of the eye and to assess eye health. The doctor will apply dilating drops to enlarge your pupils.

7

Slit-Lamp Examination

A slit-lamp is like a microscope for your eye. By shining a light in your eye, the doctor can view the inside of your eye to examine the retina, optic nerve and more.

8

Optical Coherence Tomography

OCT is a non-invasive imaging test that we use to take pictures of your retina. It helps diagnose many eye conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and more.
