Eye Exam Explained

eye-exam-testingIf you’ve never had an eye exam, you may be wondering what happens during one.  Here are the steps which your eye doctor in Medford will complete:

  1. Your optometrist or a staff member will begin by asking questions about your health history, medications, and any problems you may be having with your eyes. In the exam room chair, your optometrist will perform tests to determine your visual acuity.  You may be looking at test charts through various lenses.  Your eye care professional will ask questions about the charts and will determine whether you are farsighted, nearsighted, have presbyopia, suffer from astigmatism or have normal vision.
  2. Tests for eye pressure, depth perception and color perception may also be performed.
  3. At the end of the eye exam, your optometrist or eye care professional will review your results and any treatment options available to you.

Eye exams are easy, painless and fast.  Since a thorough eye exam can help catch diseases and health conditions, they can be critical to maintaining good health.  Contact Medical Eye Center at 800-824-2688 or www.medicaleyecenter.com to schedule your eye exam today.
