Routine Exams

Our experienced optometrists are trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage eye disorders that affect your eye health or vision.  They will use a wide variety of testing and procedures to evaluate your eyes. A routine eye exam includes:

A complete eye health history, which consists of current visual state, visual complaints, general health and relevant family medical history.

  • Tonometry to measure the eye’s intraocular pressure which is a test for glaucoma.
  • Visual Acuity Tests that measure the sharpness of your vision.
  • Pupil response to test the constriction or dilation of the pupil.
  • Cover test to check how your eyes work together.
  • A combination of lensometry, autorefraction , retinoscopy and refraction to determine your eyeglass prescription.
  • Biomiocroscopy, which utilizes a slit lamp to get a highly magnified view of the structures of your eye to thoroughly evaluate your eye health and detect any signs of infection or disease.
  • Ophthalmoscopy which examines the retinal tissue, blood vessels and nerve functions.
  • Pupil dilating drops which enlarge your pupils to provide a better view for the most thorough evaluation of the eye’s internal structures.
  • Routine eye examinations are recommended yearly to diagnose and treat eye health symptoms and visual concerns.
