Evaluating Ocular Health

Eye Exam Processes and Information

Study Provides Clarity

During a complete eye exam, both your vision and ocular health will be measured and evaluated with distinct tests.

Tonometry: Measuring the fluid pressure in the eye; an important test in detecting glaucoma.

Peripheral vision:
 Identifying how well you see targets which are not directly in front of you will assist in the detection of neurological and retinal diseases.

Corneal topography:
 This provides the most detailed information about the curvature of the cornea. It is useful in evaluating and correcting astigmatism,
monitoring corneal diseases, and detecting irregularities in the corneal shape.

Retinal exam under dilatation:
 Dilatation with eye drops enables the Optometrist to obtain a much better view of your retina, optic nerve and vessels in the back of your eye. From this simple exam, the Optometrist is able to gather a lot of important information. In fact, some systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes are first discovered during a dilated eye exam.


Retinal photography: Allows your Optometrist to keep a permanent recorded image of your retinas for later comparison. This can assist in the detection of ocular diseases that have no visual symptoms.
