TYPES OF EXAMS EYE & VISION EXAMS
Primary Eyecare and Optical of Meridian performs vision and comprehensive eye exam for our patients. We begin by checking your personal and family medical history to look for factors that may increase your risk for certain eye diseases. Next, you will be asked about any potential symptoms you may be experiencing, such as eye pain, itching, redness or burning, or vision problems like blurriness. We use eye charts and special instruments to evaluate your vision during each portion of the comprehensive eye exam. Using a series of tests designed to ensure you enjoy the clearest vision possible, we measure your visual acuity, or clearness of vision, at different distances to look for issues that could indicate your need for glasses or contacts.
Contact lenses offer significant benefits to patients who require eyeglasses on a regular basis. Today’s contacts feature many different styles and features so that anyone can wear contacts and safely and comfortably improve their vision. Like a normal vision exam, we use special instruments and vision tests to determine the amount of correction you’ll need to see clearly. Unlike eyeglasses examinations, a contact exam will use special instruments to carefully evaluate and measure your cornea, the clear surface portion of your eye where the contact lens will rest. Precise measurement of the corneal curvature is essential to ensuring the best fit and most optimal vision. Once you’re determined to be a good candidate for contact lenses, our doctors and vision care professionals will discuss your contact lens options.
The eye health portion of your vision and comprehensive eye exam focuses on the health of your eye and the eye anatomy. This test evaluates different areas of your eye, including the surface and the interior portion. It also evaluates the light-sensitive retina at the back of your eye as well as the optical nerve, the part of your eye that sends visual information from your eye to your brain. Optomap Retinal Imaging may be performed to take pictures of the back of your eye so they can be evaluated for changes that could indicate potential eye disease. The pressure inside your eye will be measured using a device called a tonometer to check for signs of glaucoma and to avoid permanent vision loss.
