Eye Exam and Consultation

Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light.

The results will help our Doctors to diagnose any emphasize conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
Contact Lens Examination
If you wear or want contacts, you need a contact lens exam in addition to a comprehensive eye exam. Our doctor will perform this additional special tests during a contact lens exam to evaluate your vision with contacts.
- The first test will measure your eye surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for you. Doctor may also want to do a tear film evaluation to make sure you have enough tears to comfortably wear contacts.
- With the results of those tests, your eye doctor can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. An eyeglass prescription is no substitute for a contact lens exam because the two are very different. An eyeglass prescription measures for lenses that are positioned approximately 12 millimeters from your eyes; whereas a contact lens prescription measures for lenses that sit directly on the surface the eye. An improper fitting or prescription of contacts can damage the health of the eyes.
- Once you have the correct fit and prescription for contacts, you'll need to decide whether you want disposable contacts or extended wear, and if you want your contacts to be colored.
- Doctor will fit you with a trial pair of contacts and have you wear them for a few days. In about a week, you'll need a follow-up exam to make sure you have adjusted to your new lenses.
