Pre-exam tests

Before you meet with the optometrist, our technicians will perform a series of pre-exam tests to gather important information about your eyes. These tests may include measuring your visual acuity, checking your eye pressure, and assessing your color vision. These tests provide valuable insights into your eye health and serve as a baseline for the rest of the exam.

Visual acuity test

One of the most common tests during an eye exam is the visual acuity test. You will be asked to read letters or symbols from a chart located a certain distance away. This test helps determine the sharpness and clarity of your vision. Our optometrist will carefully assess your responses to accurately determine your visual acuity and identify any vision deficiencies or abnormalities.

Refraction test

The refraction test is crucial in determining your exact prescription for corrective lenses, such as glasses or contact lenses. During this test, you will be asked to look through a series of lenses while reading letters or numbers on a chart. By carefully refining the lenses, our optometrist will determine the appropriate prescription that will optimize your vision.

Eye health evaluation

Maintaining good eye health is essential, and during the eye exam, our optometrist will thoroughly evaluate the overall health of your eyes. This evaluation may involve the use of specialized equipment to examine the various structures of your eyes, including the cornea, iris, and retina. If any abnormalities or signs of eye diseases are detected, our optometrist will discuss them with you and recommend appropriate treatment or further evaluation if necessary.

Pupil dilation

In some cases, our optometrist may recommend pupil dilation to obtain a more comprehensive view of the internal structures of your eyes. The dilation process involves applying eye drops that temporarily enlarge your pupils. While this may cause temporary blurred vision and increased sensitivity to light, it allows our optometrist to thoroughly examine the back of your eyes, including the optic nerve and blood vessels. The effects of pupil dilation usually subside within a few hours.

Intraocular pressure test

An intraocular pressure test, also known as a tonometry test, is performed to measure the pressure inside your eyes. High intraocular pressure can be a sign of glaucoma, a serious eye condition. This test is quick and painless, involving the use of a small device that gently touches your eye or emits a puff of air. Our optometrist will carefully monitor your intraocular pressure to ensure the health of your eyes.

Color vision test

The color vision test evaluates your ability to perceive and differentiate colors accurately. Our optometrist will present you with a series of colored plates or dots and ask you to identify the numbers or patterns within them. This test is particularly important for detecting color vision deficiencies that may affect everyday tasks, such as driving or reading. If any issues are identified, our optometrist will provide appropriate recommendations or interventions.

Discussion and recommendations

After completing all the necessary tests, our optometrist will discuss the results with you and provide personalized recommendations based on your specific eye health and vision needs. This may include prescribing corrective lenses, such as glasses or contact lenses, or recommending further treatment or evaluation for any detected eye conditions. Our optometrist will take the time to thoroughly explain the results and address any questions or concerns you may have.
