Comprehensive Eye Exam

Galleria Vision Center

How should you prepare for a comprehensive eye exam?

Preparation isn’t required for an eye exam. Nevertheless, you should consider a few things before scheduling an appointment.

An eye exam involves a series of tests to check your vision, so you might experience some eye sensitivity immediately afterward. If you’ve scheduled your appointment in the middle of the workday, you may have difficulty looking at a computer screen or seeing clearly in general.

Dr. Joe needs to know as much information about your medical history as possible to make the best diagnosis and understand your health patterns. If this is your first visit with Galleria Vision Center, make sure you have all relevant medical records available.

If you’re over 40, you should speak with Dr. Joe about scheduling regular visits. If you’re under 40, Dr. Joe suggests scheduling appointments when you’re experiencing eye issues or if you have a known family history of eye disease that needs monitoring.

Contact the team at Galleria Vision Center to learn more about your individualized scheduling recommendations.

What happens during an eye exam?

During your eye exam, Dr. Joe tests your eyes’ functionality and sensory capacity. To do so, she’ll perform a visual acuity test, where you’ll be asked to read an eye chart, moving from the largest to the smallest letters. This enables her to determine your prescription.

Dr. Joe also checks the health of your pupils by shining a bright light directly into your eyes, forcing the pupils to respond by constricting. Some other tests that your optometrist can perform during an eye exam include:

  • Side vision
  • Eye movement
  • Moving object tracking
  • Phoropter tests to check the need for glasses or contact lenses
  • Tonometry to measure the pressure in your eyes

In most cases, Dr. Joe will require a slit lamp to magnify and illuminate your cornea, eyelid, lens, and iris. This helps her track irregularities.

What are some common eye diseases or conditions?

The team at Galleria Vision Center can identify the presence of many eye conditions during your eye exam, including:

  • Retinal disorders
  • Refractive errors
  • Cataracts
  • Optic nerve disorders
  • Macular degeneration
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Diabetic eye conditions
