The visual system is a delicate and complex part of the human anatomy. All parts of the eye and many parts of the overall body affect your ability to see. In our comprehensive eye health and vision examination, the health of your eyes is evaluated from cornea to retina.

You will find that your eye examination is a pleasant and interesting experience. Based on modern optometric techniques, the examination consists not of a single test but a series of tests, all of which are integrated with each other. The examination is divided into four sections:

1. A series of tests designed to determine whether your eyes are healthy and free from disease. We complete a thorough check for certain diseases that manifest themselves in the eye.

2. A number of objective tests are conducted, enabling us to observe and measure your eyes without your active participation. These tests also enable us to accurately examine small children and toddlers.

3. Next, a number of subjective tests are conducted with your active participation. We will ask you a number of questions and expect you to answer them as well as you can.

4. Additional tests will be performed to assess the muscular balance of your eyes, how well your eyes work as a team, and how well your eyes focus.

At the conclusion of the exam, we will explain the results of the tests and make recommendations for any preventative or remedial vision care you may need.
