At Advanced EyeCare we offer comprehensive vision exams for our patients. These exams are thorough to ensure we completely understand your needs and can accurately prescribe a vision solution for you.
Our comprehensive vision exams begin by taking a full patient history. Many eye and vision-related problems can be tied to other health conditions, so you should include not only your vision history but pertinent medical history as well, including conditions that may run in your family.
Next, we will discuss any symptoms or problems you are experiencing. Your optometrist will use this information to get to the root of what’s causing the problem, as well as to determine if any additional tests are needed.
After we’ve gone over your history and symptoms, we will begin the preliminary testing of the following:
- Visual acuity
- Depth perception
- Color vision
- Peripheral vision
- Eye muscle movements
- Neurological responses
- Eye pressure
During your examination, we will complete a scan of your retina using digital retinal imaging, evaluate your overall eye health, and if needed, will determine the prescription for your new lenses. If the doctor feels there are any additional tests you need based on your medical history or the findings of the comprehensive exam, those will be completed. If needed, you may be referred to an appropriate specialist for further testing and treatment.
