Comprehensive Eye Exmaination

Comprehensive eye exams by a doctor of optometry are an important part of caring for your eyes, vision, and overall all health.

Periodic eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms, so you might not know a problem exists. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems can help prevent vision loss. Each patient's signs and symptoms, along with your doctor of optometry's professional judgment, will determine what tests are conducted. A comprehensive adult eye examination includes:

  • Patient and family health history.

  • Visual acuity measurement.

  • Preliminary tests of visual function and eye health, including depth perception, color vision, peripheral (side) vision and the response of the pupils to light.

  • Assessment of refractive status to determine the presence of nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.

  • Evaluation of eye focusing, eye teaming and eye movement abilities.

  • Eye health examination.

  • Additional tests as needed.
