Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN EYE EXAM AND A VISION SCREENING?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN EYE EXAM AND A VISION SCREENING?1
A comprehensive eye exam is administered by an optometrist and can detect not only vision problems but problems with eye health and general health as well. A vision screening is typically performed by a general medical practitioner such as a pediatrician or a nurse. While a vision screening can help identify vision issues, it can miss many important issues that a comprehensive eye exam can identify. This is why everyone is encouraged to get annual eye exams. Schedule your eye exam today.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN AN EYE EXAM?
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN AN EYE EXAM?1

IS A CONTACT LENS EXAM DIFFERENT THAN AN EYE EXAM?1
A normal, comprehensive eye exam will allow your optometrist to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses. During your contact lens fitting, detailed measurements of your eyes will be taken to determine the right contact lenses for you. There is an additional fee for a contact lens fitting and evaluation for all contact lens patients (both new and established patients). Schedule your eye exam today to have all of your questions about contact lenses answered.
WHY SHOULD I GET AN EYE EXAM?
WHY SHOULD I GET AN EYE EXAM?1

CAN EYE EXAMS DETECT OTHER HEALTH ISSUES?
CAN EYE EXAMS DETECT OTHER HEALTH ISSUES?1

WHEN SHOULD I SEE AN OPTOMETRIST?

HOW DOES MY VISION CHANGE WITH AGE?
HOW DOES MY VISION CHANGE WITH AGE?1
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
WHAT IS A REFRACTION TEST?
WHAT IS A REFRACTION TEST?1
Your optometrist uses a refraction test to determine your exact eyeglasses prescription. Through showing you a series of lens choices through a device called a phoropter, your optometrist determines the amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism that you have and the lenses needed to correct these vision problems.
WHO CAN WEAR CONTACT LENSES?
WHO CAN WEAR CONTACT LENSES?1
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.
HOW DOES AN OPTOMETRIST TEST MY EYES?
HOW DOES AN OPTOMETRIST TEST MY EYES?1
An optometrist uses several tests and tools to evaluate your eye health and your vision. Your eye exam usually will include a glaucoma test, a retinal screening, a visual field screening, an extraocular muscle test, and a refraction test. The results of these screenings and tests help your optometrist evaluate your vision and overall eye health.
HOW IS VISION MEASURED?
HOW IS VISION MEASURED?1
Vision is measured through a series of tests performed at an eye exam. Visual acuity is commonly measured by a series of two numbers, the first number representing the distance from which a person can clearly see something, and the second number representing the distance from which a person with normal vision can see that same thing. This measurement is typically obtained during an eye exam by having a person read from an eye chart with various sizes of letters.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD NEEDS GLASSES?
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD NEEDS GLASSES?1
Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
