Comprehensive Eye Examinations
Regular dilated comprehensive eye examinations are recommended by the National Eye Institute and the American Academy of Ophthalmology to ensure the health of your eyes. During a comprehensive eye examination the eyes are evaluated for vision problems and eye diseases. The frequency of eye examinations is determined by your age and by the health of your eyes. A complete exam will last forty five minutes to one hour. Examination will include:
- Review of medical and family history
- Visual Acuity
- Refraction to determine the need for corrective lenses
- Pupil, peripheral vision, eye alignment and motility evaluation
- Intraocular pressure
- Bio-microscopic examination of the front of the eyes
- Dilation of the pupil and examination of the vitreous, optic nerve, macula, and retina.
- If an abnormality is detected, ancillary testing may be performed to help with diagnosis and treatment.
