What Can I Expect at My Next Eye Exam?

eyechart2Regardless of your age or physical health, it’s important to have yearly eye exams. During a complete eye exam, your Cove Eyecare doctor will determine your prescription for eyeglasses and will check your eyes for eye diseases, determine how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex computerized instruments that provide detail digital images of the retina and the complete eye.

Some of the tests we may perform are:

  • Visual Acuity Tests
  • Color Blindness Test
  • Cover Test
  • Ocular Motility (Eye Movements) Testing
  • Stereopsis (Depth Perception) Test
  • Retinoscopy
  • Refraction
  • Autorefractors and Aberrometers
  • Slit Lamp Exam
  • The Glaucoma Test
  • Pupil Dilation
  • Visual Field Test

Cove Eyecare doctors recommend you have a complete eye exam every year.
