🔴 What's included in the Comprehensive Eye Examination?


Visual Function Evaluation determines the quality of your vision (how well you can see) and measures important visual skills.


Refraction is the process of determining the prescription for your glasses.


Ocular Health Evaluation includes the measurement of intraocular pressure (eye pressure), assessment of the anterior structures of the eye (lids and lashes, cornea, conjunctiva, sclera, iris, lens), and assessment of the central region of the posterior structures of the eye (central retina, macula, optic nerve). During the ocular health evaluation we provide an in-depth assessment of degree of damage caused by systemic health conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc), high-risk medications, as well an in-depth assessment of risks of ocular disease due to family history (glaucoma, macular degeneration, etc). In addition, we provide an in-depth assessment of surgical need for LASIK, corneal, cataract, and retinal surgeries.


🔴 What additional services may be done during your Comprehensive Eye Examination?


Dilation is the process of instilling three dilating eye drops to enlarge the pupil to examine the internal structures of the eye for signs of disease, which is important for your health and well-being. Without dilating the eye, your doctor may not be able to detect cases in which the retina is diseased, physically compromised, or harboring cancerous growths.  As such, early detection and diagnosis of certain eye conditions, along with timely and effective treatment, may not be possible.


Anterior Structure Photos of your lids, lashes, cornea, conjunctiva, sclera, iris, and lens are acquired during your exam and stored in your records to document your findings and monitor any possible progression of eye disease along the years.


Posterior Structure Photos of your macula, retina, and optic nerve are acquired during your exam and stored in your records to document your findings and monitor any possible progression of eye disease along the years.
