When should you see an ophthamologist?

Regular checkups are essential to your eye care. In many cases, early warning signs of eye disease can be detected and arrested before more serious conditions develop. Medical diseases cover a range of common conditions. These diseases include glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, amblyopia (lazy eye), ocular infections, dry eye syndrome, as well as other eye diseases.

What happens during an eye examination?

During your exam, our Doctors and our team of Certified Technicians will help assist you in your Eye Exam; they will ask about your current symptoms and review your medical history. Eye drops to dilate your eyes may or may not be used during the exam.

The eye doctor evaluates the following:

  • visual acuity
  • need for eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • eyelid health and function
  • coordination of eye muscles
  • pupil response to light
  • side or peripheral vision
  • intraocular pressure (pressure inside the eye)
  • the anterior segment of the eye (the area in front of the lens, including the cornea and iris)
  • the interior and back of the eye
