Listed below are the medical test preformed in our Comprehensive Eye Exam:
Every comprehensive eye exam includes a high-technology pre-test which consists of: an auto refraction (refractive error estimate), auto keratometry (corneal curvature), non contact tonometry (eye pressure), and a digital retinal scan of the eye.
Medical and Visual Case History
Obtaining detailed a medical and visual history. This is important in establishing and documenting all medical and environmental influences that can affect vision.
The visual assessment of a patients’ corrected and uncorrected vision is documented as a baseline measurement at each office visit. This is recorded for both distance and near vision and is monitored for changes over time.
Binocular Vision Testing
Binocular testing is important to rule out strabismus, amblyopia and/or lazy eye. It involves determining how well your eyes coordinate together and how they recognize depth perception. This part of the eye exam is performed via Cover Testing, Near Point Convergence Testing, Broad H Testing and Stereo Acuity measurements.
Colour Vision Testing
Colour Vision Testing is performed on pediatric patients and all firemen/policemen to rule out colour decencies. Some eye diseases can be detected by measuring and monitoring changes in colour vision?
Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy
This part of the comprehensive eye exam involves careful detailed examination of anterior ocular structures including the cornea, the natural lens, and conjunctival tissues. The process of a slit lamp examination is to evaluate for the presence of cataracts, dry eye, and contact lens induced anthologies such as infections or trauma.
Dry Eye Assessment
Every comprehensive eye examination at Village Creek Optometry will include a detailed assessment of the ocular tear film surface. This includes staining the cornea a painless and quick process, to visualize the extent of corneal dryness or damage in the eye. Based on the results of a corneal assessment, a multi-step, Personalized Dry Eye Treatment Plan may be developed
Dilated Fundus Examination
A Dilated Fundus Examination includes a detailed and careful examination of the internal ocular structures–the retina, the optic nerve, the retinal blood musculature, and the macula–to rule out retinal abnormalities and to detect for early signs of Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Degeneration.
Every comprehensive eye examination at Village Creek Optometry involves Patient Education and Counselling. During this part of the examination, We will thoroughly discuss the results of the individual test results and the health and lifestyle implications of the results. We will also develop a treatment plan that will address the patient’s underlying eye condition and establish a follow-up care schedule.
Lens Education and Counselling
We will guide and educate patients on the optimal lens selection, based on your prescription, frame selection and lifestyle.
Also, our vision care specialists will also educate and counsel first-time and existing contact cleanse wearers on safe and long-term contact lens wear. We will review lens care and replacement schedules as prescribed to ensure that your contact lens use is safe and enjoyable.
