Eye Examinations

 

We provide Comprehensive Eye Examinations for adults and children. We do much more than prescribe glasses and contact lenses! Our examination consists of:

 

  • Eye Health Examination: We dilate your eyes and use special instruments to examine the external and internal structures of your eyes. This allows for the detection of Cataracts, Glaucoma, Diabetes, Hypertension, Macular Disease and other conditions that affect the eyes.

  • Refraction: Refraction is a test that determines the prescription of your eyeglasses or contact lenses. We do this through the means of a computer called an Autorefractor, a handheld Retinoscope and a Phoroptor.

  • Binocular Vision Testing: We test eye coordination and we perform tests to evaluate you for Computer Vision Syndrome, Focusing problems, Eye Muscle Balance, and Depth Perception.

  • Retinal Photography/Anterior Segment Photography: A special Digital Retinal Camera takes photographs of the front and back of your eye. This provides a baseline record of your eye health exam, as well as, helps us discover High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Tumors and other diseases. It is also used to document and follow your disease condition over time.

  • QuantifEye Macular Pigment Optical Density Testing: MPOD measures your risk of developing Macular Degeneration. It is recommended for all patients’ 21 years of age and older. This test is evaluated with 10 other Macular Degeneration risk factors. Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Patients with detected low Macular Pigment level scores may take nutritional supplements, which may help to provide protection against Macular Degeneration and potentially restore the pigment layer.

  • Visual Field Analyzer: We use an Autoperimeter, which is a computer to measure your peripheral and central retinal sensitivity. It takes about 2 minutes per eye and helps us detect Retinal Diseases like Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, some Brain Tumors and Neurological Diseases.

  • Tonometry: A screening test for glaucoma which is a sight-threatening disease. We do not use “air puff” machine to screen for glaucoma. We use advanced technology called the iCARE tonometer. No dyes or drops necessary! Our patients have given us very positive feedback regarding this new technology. For more information, visit http://icare-usa.com/icare-tonometer/.

  • Optovue Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT):  OCT provides our patients with state of the art imaging for the detection of ocular disease.  This type of imaging visualizes the structures of the eye from the cornea to the retina.  OCT allows us to detect ocular pathologies at earlier stages, which allows for more favorable outcomes.  For more information, visit https://www.optovue.com/patients.
