Annual eye exams and vision testing are recommended for patients of
all ages. During your annual exam, we provide the following:
Complete review of patient history
Visual acuity testing
Stereo acuity and Fusion tests are performed to evaluate depth
perception and eye teaming ability. Poor depth perception can be a result
of an eye turn (Strabismus), or neurological abnormality, which if left
untreated could lead to permanently reduced vision (Amblyopia). These tests are especially important
for children in detecting perceptual problems and poor binocularity that
could affect their performance in school and sports.
Intraocular pressure is checked mainly for Glaucoma (typically a
high eye pressure of fluid inside the eye which leads to optic nerve
Visual Field Exam: A computerized test to check central and
peripheral vision, helpful in diagnosing and following conditions that
affect side vision such as Glaucoma and other visual or neurological
Refraction: performed yearly to determine and monitor your
prescription for glasses or contact lenses, to ensure you’re seeing as
clearly as possible, and to detect any loss of best corrected vision
potentially caused by a visual anomaly.
Biomicroscopy: A detailed microscopic exam of all eye anatomy to
check for abnormalities, conditions, or disease.
Dilation: drops are used to dilate the pupil (window into the
eye) which allow a more complete and broader view of the peripheral
retina, where certain degenerations can make one more susceptible to retinal detachment. This test is
recommended for both baseline and yearly exams, especially if symptoms
are present such as flashes, floaters, veils or curtains in your vision.
Assessment and Treatment: We take the time to thoroughly explain
your eye health along with treatment and correction options tailored for
your specific case.
