What does the Optometrist do?

The exam typically begins with the doctor asking questions about the patient’s medical history and any current symptoms they may be experiencing. The doctor will then perform a series of tests to evaluate the patient’s visual acuity, depth perception, color vision, and peripheral vision.

Let’s improve our quality of life.

  1. Age-related eye diseases: As people age, the risk of developing eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration increases. Regular eye exams can detect these conditions in their early stages, allowing for earlier treatment and better outcomes.

  2. Changes in vision: Age-related changes in vision are common, and regular eye exams can detect changes in vision that may require corrective lenses or other interventions.

  3. Overall health: The eyes can provide important clues about a person’s overall health. Eye exams can detect signs of high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health conditions that may have ocular manifestations.

  4. Safety: Good vision is essential for safe driving, walking, and other activities. Regular eye exams can ensure that seniors can see clearly and safely perform everyday tasks.

What tests will I have to do?

During an eye exam, a variety of tests may be performed to evaluate the health and function of the eyes. Here are some of the most common tests:

  1. Visual Acuity Test: This test measures the sharpness of vision. The patient reads letters or numbers from a chart placed at a specific distance.

  2. Refraction Test: This test helps determine the prescription for corrective lenses if necessary.

  3. Eye Pressure Test: This test is used to measure the pressure inside the eye, which is important in detecting and monitoring glaucoma.

  4. Ophthalmoscopy: This test involves examining the inside of the eye, including the retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels, to detect any signs of diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or other eye problems.

  5. Color Vision Test: This test is used to detect any color vision deficiencies that may affect the patient’s daily life.

  6. Visual Field Test: This test measures the extent of the patient’s peripheral vision.

  7. Assessment of Eye Coordination: This test evaluates how well the patient’s eyes work together.

  8. Assessment of Eye Muscle Function: This test evaluates the strength and function of the eye muscles.

  9. Assessment of the Tear Film: This test checks for dry eye syndrome or other problems with tear production.

  10. Discussion of Symptoms and Health History: The optometrist or ophthalmologist will ask about any symptoms the patient may have and their medical history.
