Many of our clients think they only need to visit the optometrist for an eye exam in Lloydminster if they have poor vision. However, optometrists do more than measure your eyesight. During your eye exam in Fort McMurray, your doctor will look for early signs of eye diseases, as well as other medical conditions like diabetes.
Typical services within an eye exam at The Eyewear Place might include:
Internal and external ocular examination: The doctor will examine both the inside and outside of your eye. The doctor may dilate your eyes to better view the inside.
Eye pressure measurement: This tests for glaucoma. It measures the pressure it takes to flatten a small, circular area of the cornea.
Complete medical and ocular history: Your doctor will go over your medical and ocular history to give context to the exam.
Visual clarity: This measures your visual acuity at different distances from about 6 metres to 40 cm. You’ll recognize this as the test where you read a chart with letter of different sizes on it.
Binocular vision evaluation: This measures how efficiently you use your eyes and how your brain interprets the visual information it collects.
Refraction for glasses: The optometrist will switch between a series of lenses and ask you which lens offers you greater clarity.
Your optometrist might also evaluate:
Visual field measurements (for glaucoma, stroke, and other neurological impairments)
