Regardless of your age or physical condition, our optometrist recommends a regular eye exam to evaluate your eye health. During your exam, our optometrist will evaluate the health of your eyes with tests with diagnostic equipment. Our expert for contact lenses in Fairfax, VA, explains what you can expect during your eye exam below.
To assess the quality of your vision, we will measure:
We will also screen you for common eye diseases and evaluate your overall eye health. Our doctor may dilate your pupils for some of these tests.
Another test will measure your peripheral vision (the ability to see movement and motion out of the corner of your eye while looking straight). This can help assess the health of your optic nerve. Using a tonometry device (a puff of air), we will also measure your eye pressure to detect signs of glaucoma, and obtain advanced digital images of the back of your eye to check for diabetes complications and macular degeneration. Through this combination of tests, we will have insight into your eye health and our doctor will be able to treat you effectively!
