COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAM
A comprehensive eye examination is an eye exam performed by an optometrist. It involves a thorough examination of all aspects of your vision. The optometrist will then recommend a treatment plan, customised to your individual needs. This includes prescription lenses, eye exercises, eye drops or ointment, and even surgery if the problem is serious.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM AN EYE EXAM
An eye exam may vary slightly depending on your age or specific needs, but most commonly include these tests:
Visual Acuity: This is a test to measure the sharpness of your vision.
Colour Blindness: A screening test to check your colour vision to rule out color blindness.
Cover Test: This is the simplest and easiest way to test if your eyes work well together.
Ocular Motility or Eye Movements: This test determines how well your eyes can follow a moving object as well as fixate on different targets. Issues with eye movement can cause eye strains and lead to difficulties in reading.
Intra Ocular Eye Pressure: this test involve testing the pressure in your eye. It helps with the diagnosis of conditions like Glaucoma.
Slit Lamp Exam: This is a specific test your optometrist uses to examine the structure of your eye under high magnification. This helps detect a wide range of eye conditions and diseases including cataracts, corneal ulcers and diabetic retinopathy.
Comprehensive eye exams have many more tests, but these are the most common and cover a wide spectrum of potential eye conditions.
