FAQs on Routine Eye Exams:

 

What Happens during a Routine Eye Exam?

During a routine eye exam, one of our ophthalmologists will gather information about your health history as well as any specific vision issues that you have. After that, our care team will perform a comprehensive vision assessment. They will use a visual acuity test and tests to check your close-up vision. Our ophthalmologists will numb your eyes to perform a test to check for your eye pressure. Finally, our team will dilate your eyes in order to see your inner pupils. This can cause light sensitivity, but this will go away after a few hours. 

 

 

What are Common Eye Diseases?

Additional testing may be required if one of our ophthalmologists sees any signs of any eye diseases or conditions. Common eye diseases include:

  • Cataracts
  • Refractive errors
  • Retinal conditions
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy
