The experience begins at pre-testing. We will get to know your eyes a little better through briefly discussing any eye related concerns you may have for the visit and your ocular history. Next, a variety of tests are performed with our state-of-the-art testing equipement. The tests may include:



Using an autorefractor, your refractive error is estimated by analyzing how light is focused on the retina. 


Intraocular Pressure Measurement

This is the "air-puff" machine that you may recall from your previous eye exams. If you are not a big fan of the "puff," a different method can be used to carry out the testing.  This is important for screening and monitoring conditions like glaucoma.


Retinal Imaging

Retinal imaging offers a detailed glimpse into the inner workings of your eyes, the retina. While a typical fundus camera captures approximately 30° to 50° of your retinal area, our Ultra-Widefield WRI-1 fundus camera from Cellview captures up to 133° in just one take. 

The Exam

Here are some of the areas the optometrist will examine in the exam room:

  1. Visual acuity test:This test measures your ability to see and read on an eye chart at a specific distance.

  2. Refraction Test: This test determines your prescription for eyeglasses. 

  3. Binocular Vision Assessment: This evaluation assesses how well your eyes work together as a team. 

  4. Slit Lamp Examination: The optometrist uses a specialized microscope called a slit lamp to examine the structures of your eyes, including the cornea, iris, lens, and retina. It helps detect any abnormalities or signs of eye diseases.

  5. Pupil Dilation: In some cases, the optometrist may dilate your pupils using eye drops to get a better view of the retina and optic nerve. This allows for a more thorough examination and aids in detecting conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or retinal tears.

  6. Additional Tests: Depending on your specific needs and any identified concerns, the optometrist may perform additional tests, such as dry eye assessment.
