Our comprehensive eye exams include a refraction (which determines a patient’s best corrected visual acuity and visual potential), intraocular pressure assessment for glaucoma screening, a cataract evaluation, and a thorough examination of the eye which includes dilation. Dilation allows your eye doctor to examine the retina, optic nerve, macula and blood vessels. Dilation is necessary for most children to determine the most accurate prescription for eyeglasses. Our doctor will discuss the findings of your eye exam and advise you on follow up care if needed. In order to allow adequate time for routine testing, dilation, questions, frame selection and possible unexpected emergencies, patients are asked to allow 2 hours for their eye visit.
