What Does An Eye Exam Consist Of?

Eye Point Optometry’s eye exam includes the following tests and procedures:

  1. Visual Field Screening: This test can reveal missing areas of vision that can be related to eye diseases, but can also detect brain tumors, aneurysms, and strokes.
  2. Eye Pressure Check: Elevated eye pressure can lead to the development of glaucoma  (Don’t worry, we don’t do the air puff test!).
  3. Refraction: This is the procedure that allows Dr. Sellers to determine your glasses prescription…Which is better, one or two?  
  4. Dilation: In order to evaluate the full health of your eyes, dilation is recommended. With dilation, eye drops are used to enlarge the pupil allowing Dr. Sellers to more easily see the internal structures of your eyes. This aids in checking for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retina holes/tears, and other various eye issues.  
  5. Additional tests may be performed based on your individual needs or issues such as dry eyes. We may also recommend retinal photography for our diabetic patients and to document other findings such as moles and freckles.
