WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN EYE EXAMINATION?

Visual acuity test:

We let you read letters/numbers on a chart to determine your visual acuity without spectacles and we determine where and how we can improve your vision.

 

Eye muscle control:

Eye muscle control and flexibility are measured to make sure your binocular vision function is sufficient.

 

Retinoscopy:

The optometrist gets an objective measurement of your prescription.

 

Refraction and balancing of two eyes:

The goal of the subjective refraction is to achieve clear and comfortable binocular vision.

 

Slit-lamp examination:

Look at the external health of the eye.

Ophthalmoscopy:

Look at the internal health of the eye.

 

Colour-blindness:

Our color blindness test helps you test grey, blue, red-green, and blue-green color blindness.

 

Visual field test:

Visual field testing is one way we measure how much vision you have in either eye.

 

Glaucoma test (intraocular pressure):

Your ophthalmologist uses eye drops to numb your eye, then touches your cornea with a special lens.

 

Other tests if needed:
