Although our clinic specializes in pediatrics and vision therapy, we also provide primary eye care services for patients of all ages.
In addition to binocular vision and visual perceptual evaluations, we also provide comprehensive eye exams which are important in catching ocular disease, as well as a variety of developmental vision problems that can be difficult to detect without careful and early examination by an optometrist.
Parts of an Eye Exam
- Refraction: The process of determining the optical correction necessary to provide the best possible vision for our patients is called “refraction” and is performed using a machine called a Phoropter.
- Dilation: Eye drops are used to affect the iris muscles in order to open the pupil, creating a larger window for the doctor to better examine all ocular structures inside the eye. Without regular dilation, the doctor is unable to view the entire retina, unless special imaging techniques are used.
- Ocular health examination: The doctor can use several instruments to view all of the structures in and around the eyes in order to assess the health of your eyes.
