Eye Exam

What Happens during an Eye Exam?

Eye exams go beyond just ensuring that you have a certain level of vision or if you need to get glasses. That happens during a vision test. When you have an eye exam, the eye doctor will thoroughly examine your eyes to make sure you don't have any conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, or cataracts, among other things.

If this is your first visit, you may go over your recent eye health history. You might be asked about your family history and whether you're experiencing any problems with your eyes.

What Do They Test?

We will test your visual acuity, which can include how well you can see out of each eye. If you need glasses or contacts, we will do measurements to make sure you get the right prescription. We may also do various tests to see if you have developed any hidden eye diseases.

How Long Does the Exam Last?

You can usually expect the eye exam to take an hour or so. After the eye exam, a member of our optometry team can explain all of our findings and prescribe any medication you need.

Eye exams are important for diagnosing certain conditions. While these conditions can happen at any age, especially if you have a genetic predisposition to it, many happen as you get older. That's it is recommended you have regular appointments, usually every year. This way, an eye doctor on our team will be able to make sure that it hasn't worsened.
