A comprehensive eye exam for us can take up to an hour and will include an external and internal eye health evaluation. Tests for visual field defects, glaucoma and cataracts will be preformed This will be followed by a careful measurement of your prescription, call the refraction, and a binocular vision assessment will be taken. More in-depth testing will be preformed if necessary.
Some of our patients may need to be dilated, so you should plan on getting a ride home. Or you could opt for an Optomap Retinal Scan. This revolutionary diagnostic tool allows us to view a majority of the retina. The Optomap allows the technician to capture a 200 degree high-resolution image of the retina in a single shot, without dilation. We recommend this scan to all our patients.
Problem focused exams for eye emergencies are also available. We treat a number of ocular diseases. We can prescribe certain oral and topical medications and can perform minor procedures, such as superficial foreign body removal, punctal dilation and occlusion. If there is a problem beyond our scope, we will refer you to a trusted doctor for further treatment.
