What to Expect During an Eye Care Exam
If you’ve never had an eye exam before or haven’t been in a while and aren’t sure what to expect, there are a few steps in the eye care exam that are routine for all patients. For new patients, we will have your fill out your medical history and provide a list of any medications you are currently taking. We will also discuss any vision problems you might be having.
Second, you will complete a few vision tests, including reading from an eye chart and looking through a series of lenses to check to see if your current prescription is correct. This test also helps determine if you need glasses if you do not currently wear corrective lenses. Your optometrist may dilate your pupils with special drops in order to see the structure of your eyes. You’ll be asked to sit for an applanation tonometry test that sends a puff of air onto your eye to test for glaucoma. A cover test will also be performed to test for eye alignment. Finally, a slit lamp exam allows the doctor to look at the surface of the eye to detect any anomalies. This comprehensive exam typically takes less than an hour.
Once complete, our caring doctors will discuss the current condition of your eyes and any requirements for corrective lenses. If you do need glasses or contacts, you will then pick out the ones that are best suited to your budget and personal preference.
