Eye Exam Information

Evaluating Your Vision

Although you might have a clear vision, only a complete and regular eye exam can guarantee the health of your eyes.

The following information will help you better understand the relevance of the eye exam you may experience during your visit at your Optometrist.

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

 Your Optometrist will carefully measure for the presence of myopia, (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (warped vision due to corneal irregularities) and presbyopia (diminished focussing ability due to age) and calculate an appropriate prescription.

Keratometry: Measuring the curvature of the eye’s surface is an important test for detecting glaucoma, as well as being crucial for the fitting
of contact lenses.

Eye movement: Evaluating how well both eyes are aligned or coordinated when working together is important. Coordinated eyes allow you to have stereoscopic (3D) vision and accurate depth perception.
