WHAT TO EXPECT

Tests may vary, but common tests performed by the doctor include:

Baseline Computerized Measurements

Helps the doctor obtain baseline measurements of your eyes for your vision needs.

Digital Retinal Photography

Pictures taken of the inside of your eyes to monitor for changes over time or help monitor eye diseases, such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy.

Blood Pressure Screening

Your general health can affect your eyes, including high blood pressure, so checking your blood pressure is important and will be measured when you come in.

Visual Acuity Reading

A measurement of how well you can see at far and near distances with different eye charts. This will be performed at every visit.

Eye Movement

The doctor will do a variety of tests to get an idea of how well your eyes move together.

Refraction

This allows the doctor to determine your glasses prescription.

Eye Health Evaluation

The doctor will use different instruments and lights to magnify and evaluate the surface and inside of your eyes. This allows the doctor to check for dry eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, high blood pressure and many other conditions.

Eye Pressure Test

The pressure of your eyes is important to measure and monitor over the years. Glaucoma is a common eye disease and obtaining the eye pressure is one measurement used to evaluate for glaucoma risk.

Additional Testing

Some additional test might be needed for contacts lenses.
