We provide thorough eye exams using the latest technology, but we also take the time to listen to your needs and explain your options. Routine eye exams include: Physical eye health exam. The external and internal parts of the eyes are examined using special instruments like a slit lamp biomicroscope and/or binocular indirect ophthalmoscope and special focusing lenses, Your pupils may be dilated with eye drops for some of these tests. Refraction. This test determines your eyeglass prescription and aids in determining your contact lens prescription. We perform precise measurements in several different ways to determine the lens formula that will work best for you. Instruments used include a computerized autorefractor, phoropter, and retinoscope, however, an important part of prescribing lenses is for the doctor to understand how you use your eyes at work and for leisure. Binocular vision testing. We test your eye coordination to be sure your vision is comfortable and that your eyes work well together. This includes an analysis of the eye muscles used for movement, focusing, and depth perception. If you have a problem with binocularity, your doctor may correct it with prescription glasses or vision therapy.
