WHAT TO EXPECT
When you walk in, our courteous staff will greet you and begin creating or updating your record.



PRELIMNARY EYE EXAMINATION
Your first stop will be the prelimnary eye examination. Here an Optometric assistant or the Optometrist will use a series of sophisticated instruments to measure your previous prescription, objectively (Auto Refraction) measure the power curvature, axial length and pressure of your eye. Color vision, depth perception and field of vision will also be measured if necessary.

The optometrist will then take over and carry out the eye exam warranted. This may be a full primary eye care examination, contact lens assessment, contact lens after care examination, or a refraction.



EYE EXAMS: WHAT TO EXPECT
A thorough eye exam administered by our eye care practitioners typically includes all, or an appropriate combination of, the following components:



CASE HISTORY
We will ask you for information about your vision and health history, medications, symptoms of vision problems and other background information.



VISUAL SYSTEM EVALUATION
Using a number of tests and ophthalmic instruments, we conduct an external and internal exam of the various parts of your vision system, including the retina, optic nerve, blood vessels, muscles, pupils, cornea, lens, iris, conjunctiva, eyelids and eyelashes. We will assess the health of your eyes and look for the possibility of vision problems such as glaucoma, cataracts and corneal diseases. The optometrist will also look for general systemic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and neurological disorders, which can be detected in limited instances through an eye exam.



REFRACTIVE EVALUATION
We will conduct several tests to determine your ability to see clearly, focus your eyes and whether you need prescription eyewear.



BINOCULAR EVALUATION
We will conduct tests of what is known as your binocular or stereoscopic vision, which determines the ability of the eyes to work and focus together at both near and far distances.



DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT PLAN
Our eye care practitioners will make a final diagnosis and determine the treatment plan for you. The diagnosis includes the status of your vision system and any systemic health problems. We will determine any necessary treatments such as corrective eyewear, contact lenses or vision therapy and ensure the earliest possible intervention for eye and other health problems.
