Because of good eye health and vision is part of having a good quality of life, a comprehensive eye examination is necessary no less than other health checks. Even more important, early diagnosis of any ocular or systemic health problem allows for earlier therapy to prevent progression. At A Matter of Sight, we feature a different series of techniques and tests for performing a comprehensive eye exam ranging from simple tests, like having you read an eye chart, to more advanced tests.

During a comprehensive eye exam at A Matter of Sight, examinee’s eyesight is evaluated, common eye disorders are diagnosed, and the retina, optic nerve, and small blood vessels in the eye are examined for signs of physical disease or other chronic conditions that may be overlooked. The comprehensive eye exam at A Matter of Sight includes:

  • Visual Acuity Test (How sharp is your vision?)
  • Cover Test (How well do your eyes work together to track moving objects?)
  • Color deficiency test (detecting color vision deficiencies)
  • Eye movement
  • Slit Lamp (3D view of your eyes)
  • Refraction: choosing lenses to fine tune a prescription for the sharpest vision possible
  • Goldmann tonometry: accessing the risk of glaucoma by measuring the pressure inside your eyes
  • Pupil dilation: eye drops that enlarging your pupils with eye drops to help detect cataracts, macular degeneration and other serious conditions
