What To Expect During Your Eye Exam

During your eye exam, we start by reviewing your eye exam history so we can track any changes to your sight, your lifestyle and medical conditions which might affect your vision. We do this through forms you will fill out, as well as by using the latest advancements in technology to view your eyes in as much detail as currently possible.

You can expect a comprehensive eye exam to last about 1 hour. Your personal eye exam time may vary depending on which specific tests the doctor needs to ensure your eyes receive the best care.

The eye exam may include dilation, which involves special drops placed into your eyes which allow the doctor to fully see and analyze the structure of your eye. Then, you’ll go through visual tests designed to check overall, near, far and peripheral vision.

Contact us if you have any concerns about what to expect.
