What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

Overall, an eye exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your eye health and visual function. An Eyewear Experts optician will work with you to tailor the exam to your individual needs. It’s important to have regular eye exams to ensure the best possible eye health and vision outcomes.

  • Medical History – Your eye care professional will likely begin by reviewing your medical history, including any current medications, allergies, or existing eye conditions.
  • Visual Acuity Test – This test involves reading letters from a chart to assess your ability to see clearly and identify details.
  • Refraction Test – This test helps determine the prescription for your corrective lenses by measuring how light bends as it passes through your eye.
  • Eye Movement Test – Your optician will check your eye movements to make sure they are working together properly.
  • Eye Pressure Test – This test measures the pressure inside your eye and helps detect glaucoma.
  • Peripheral Vision Test – This test evaluates your ability to see objects in your side vision and is particularly important for detecting issues such as glaucoma.
  • Retinal Exam – Your eye care professional will examine the back of your eye using a variety of tools, such as an ophthalmoscope or digital retinal camera.
