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.
