An eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eyediseases. Your eye doctor may use a variety of instruments, shine bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses.
A vision screening is a relatively short examination that can indicate the presence of a vision problem or a potential vision problem.
Contact Lens Examination
If you wear or want contacts, you need a contact lens exam in addition to a comprehensive eye exam.
Digital retinal imaging uses high-resolution imaging systems to take pictures of the inside of your eye. This helps our optometrists assess the health of your retina and helps them to detect and manage such eye and health conditions as glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
Glaucoma screening is often done with tests that look at changes in the optic nerve, changes in the pressure of the fluid in the eye, and changes in visual fields.
The screening does not replace a full eye examination. It will, however, reveal any potential problems you may have before you renew your driver's licence.
Binocular vision: The ability to maintain visual focus on an object with both eyes, creating a single visual image. Lack of binocular vision is normal in infants. Adults without binocular vision experience distortions in depth perception and visual measurement of distance.
Vision therapy is an individualized supervised treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies which have various causes, such as: inadequate sensorimotor development.
