Professional Eye Examination
A comprehensive examination consists of over thirty different tests and can vary considerably depending on the age and visual needs of the patient. We use the most advanced equipment available to provide this thorough assessment.
A comprehensive assessment begins with a determination of the patient's visual needs and concerns. This is followed by a complete medical, ocular and family history.
Current visual status is determined by measuring the level of vision (visual acuity). This is frequently performed with existing spectacles or contact lenses.


An external examination of the eye is performed to evaluate the movements of the eye, the response of the pupils to light as well as health of the eyelids and surrounding tissues.
Internal examination is performed to assess ocular health. Most patients will be dilated to some degree for this testing. This allows evaluation for various eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Many systemic health problems such as Diabetes potentially have ocular side effects that can permanently impair vision.
Refractive assessment is performed to determine the spectacle or contact lens prescription. Many patients have visual demands related to their occupations and hobbies that require special prescriptions.
All patients over the age of eighteen should be screened for Glaucoma. This test is painless and is especially important in any patient who exhibits risk factors including other family member(s) with Glaucoma.
Once your visual examination is completed, the doctor will summarize the findings and will make any necessary recommendations
