Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my personal background important?
Your doctor will review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements to better tailor the examination to your needs.
What can I expect from the overall exam?
In addition to determining your prescription, or how well you see up close and far away, your eye examination will also check to make sure your eyes are healthy. We will test your color vision, depth perception, as well as check for any early indicators of possible eye disorders, such as cataracts, retinal problems and glaucoma. Ultimately, the elements of your exam will be determined by the doctor.
Why does the doctor ask me, "Which is better, one or two?"
Your doctor will ask these questions during the portion of the examination when your prescription is established. We will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which is clearer for you. As the differences become less noticeable, we will be closer to finalizing your prescription. For this reason, if you're having a hard time choosing between the options, it's a good thing!
What is the test with the puff of air for?
The puff of air measures the fluid pressure in your eyes. This is an important test, as high pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma.
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
High blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes and can lead to future vision problems.
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This test is used to determine how your pupils and eye muscles react, and is important in assessing neurological function.
Is it necessary for the doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
Pupil dilation is not always necessary. We will make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully exam the retina. Dilation can also help detect diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and macular degeneration.
