At Wood Vision Source, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but can be diagnosed by an optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early, your eye care doctor is able to provide treatment options and, in many cases, restore vision or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye examinations, depending on age and whether you are at-risk or not.
Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, your eye care doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination.
During a comprehensive eye exam the quality of your vision will be measured at distance and for reading. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for typical distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, your eye doctor may prescribe corrective glasses or contacts.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, a comprehensive eye exam includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. These tests are are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly as a team.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, the overall health of the eye will evaluated through a visual examination with highly magnified lenses, state of the art retinal imaging and measuring of eye pressure. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Your eye doctor will review the findings and discuss any necessary treatment options with you.
