Comprehensive Eye Exams

new hope eye examA thorough "A to Z" exam entails a complete review of your ophthalmic and related medical symptoms. We will gather your ocular and medical history before checking your vision, with and without corrective eyewear. Then we will test for pupil function, color vision, stereo vision, and intraocular pressure.

We will check your eyes for glasses or contacts, if needed, and use a special instrument called a Slit Lamp to study the front part of your eye. The back of the eye including the optic nerve, the macula, and the retina will be checked with dilation drops or a "snapshot" by the Optomap System. Dilation will cause reading vision to blur for 4-6 hours along with light sensitivity. We recommend bringing sunglasses and someone to drive you home, if possible.

Our eye care professionals see children five years of age and older.
