Eye Examination

Home Up Ocular Side Effects











A thorough and complete eye examination is accomplished with many   diagnostic procedures including "state of the art" computerized instrumentation. Most people are familiar with vision-screening techniques that measure visual acuity to determine a need for glasses or contact lenses. But, a comprehensive exam also tests for depth perception, muscle function, eye coordination, eye health and systemic diseases. We offer all this with personal and friendly care.

Several procedures are used to detect eye disease, including:


Health History: General health, working environment, avocations, genetic & hereditary factors and medications can influence your eye health.


External  Evaluation: The doctor uses a slit-lamp biomicroscope to detect pathology of the anterior part of your eye including corneal problems, infections and cataracts and for contact lens fittings. Eye doctors also use the biomicroscope with special lenses to evaluate conditions associated with glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic, hypertensive retinopathy, corneal disease and foreign bodies, cancer, herpes, & many more.


Internal  Evaluations: Using a Monocular  or a Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope, the doctor sees through the pupil to the retina at the back of the eye to detect cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, heart disease, diabetes, ocular tumors, central retinal vein/artery occlusions,   neurological and vascular diseases. Before evaluating the internal eye, the doctor administers eye drops to dilate the pupils, thus allowing easier viewing of the retina.


Visual Efficiency Testing: A series of test to evaluate the eye teaming, eye coordination, and focusing skills. Helpful in the evaluation of computer screen problems, vision problems affecting learning, and to provide more efficient & comfortable seeing.


Additional Testing: The eye doctor screens for glaucoma by testing the fluid pressure in the eye with a tonometer (usually Goldmann or NCT.) To measure loss of central and peripheral vision (often associated with glaucoma, strokes, tumors and other diseases) the doctor utilizes a computerized fields testing instrument. Other visual tests measure contrast sensitivity, color deficiency, and light sensitivity-indicators of eye disease. If disease is present, additional tests may be performed and evaluated. Fundus photography is very beneficial for providing a panoramic view of the inside of the eye and offers more accurate analysis and allows for future comparisons.

Its important to visit an eye doctor on a regular, yearly basis, and to be alert to symptoms of eye disease. Many eye and systemic diseases can be detected and treated more effectively in the early stages.
