The Eye Doctor will perform several tests on your vision and will screen your eyes for retinal and corneal disorders. Afterwards, the Eye Doctor will discuss your test results, explain your prescription and give you a better understanding of your overall eye health.
We follow the American Optometric Association's recommendations for a comprehensive eye exam:
Internal & External Eye Health
An internal and external examination of your eyes for signs of possible disorders, such as cataracts or retinal problems.
Current Prescription Check
• An evaluation of your current eyeglass prescription.
• A test of your ability to see sharply and clearly at all distances.
• A test for your eyes' ability to focus light rays exactly on the retina at distance and close-up.
• A measurement of your internal eye pressure to test for glaucoma.
• A test for eye coordination and muscle control.
• A test to measure your eyes' ability to change focus.
• On your prescription, your eye doctor will list the vision correction necessary for your left and right eyes.
If there is a plus ("+") sign before your prescription, you are farsighted and have trouble seeing things up close.
If there is a minus ("-") sign before your prescription, you are nearsighted and have trouble seeing far away.
The higher the number is after the "+" or "-" sign, the greater the vision correction you need.
