Eye and Vision exam

Information Is Gathered

Our eye doctor will need some information from you to help decide on the right course of treatment for any problems you are experiencing with your vision. We will provide you with forms to fill out pertaining to your current and past medical conditions. Make sure to summarize any vision difficulties you are dealing with on these forms. If you take any medication, let us know about this as well. If you have vision insurance, provide us with the details listed on your insurance card so we can correspond with your provider to ensure payment is acquired.

Your Eyes Are Examined

The health of your eyes can make a difference in your vision. If a health condition is found, it is treated by our practitioner. This can aid in improving your vision in some cases. Checking your eye health is done with the use of machinery that examines your eyes for flaws. You simply look into the device, and the machine provides information for our eye doctor. If you wish to have your pupils dilated so that more detailed tests can be done, be sure to have a plan for getting home afterward, as the drops placed in your eyes tend to blur your vision.

Your Prescription Strength Is Determined

You need to read an eye chart for our eye doctor to help determine your prescription. In addition, a series of glass panes is placed in front of your eyes to see if your vision sharpens with their presence. Our practitioner will give you a prescription that you can use to purchase contact lenses or eyeglasses.

Glasses or Contacts Are Ordered

Our optometrist will order contact lenses or eyeglasses in the prescription strength needed. Our staff will help you with the selection of frames if necessary. Be sure to ask about colored contacts and designer frames if you want to significantly alter your appearance.
