An eye exam is more than just a test of your vision. It's a comprehensive check-up for your eyes, assessing both your visual acuity and overall eye health. During an eye exam, your optometrist can detect early signs of serious eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. These conditions can lead to vision loss if left untreated, making regular eye exams crucial for maintaining clear vision. But what exactly happens during an eye exam? What tests are involved, and what can they reveal about your eye health?

In this article, we'll guide you through what to expect during an eye exam, helping to alleviate any anxiety and ensure you're prepared for your next visit to the optometrist.

The eye exam process involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. These tests assess both near and far vision capabilities. Eye pressure tests are also conducted. These tests can help detect glaucoma, a condition that can lead to vision loss.A slit lamp examination is another part of the process. This allows the doctor to observe the structures of your eye under magnification. Pupil dilation is often part of an eye exam. It gives a better view of the eye's internal structures. Lastly, retinal examination helps in detecting conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or retinal detachment.

Vision and Refraction Tests

Vision tests are a crucial part of the eye exam. They assess your ability to see clearly at different distances.

Refraction testing is also conducted. We utilize a fully digital system to determine the prescription needed for eyeglasses or contact lenses and keep you seeing the clearest.

Eye Health Assessments

Eye health assessments involve a detailed examination of your eye's internal structures which includes the retina, optic nerve, and macula. We utilize digital retinal imaging that allows our optometrist to take pictures of the inside of your eye.
