Not all 'eye examinations' are the same!
One of the reasons our patients come back to us year after year is that they have come to appreciate the most thorough eye examination possible, and the explanations we are trained to give.
Each of our comprehensive examinations includes, but is not limited to:
- Review of your ocular and medical history, including any medications you take
- Computerized measurement of refractive error (glasses prescription)
- Automated visual field (peripheral vision) testing
- Measurement of visual acuity (sharpness)
- Manual measurement and fine-tuning of refractive error
- Eye muscle balance testing, including how well the eyes work together
- External eye health examination, including use of the biomicroscope, or 'slit lamp', for a highly magnified view of the structures of the front section of the eye, as well as contact lenses and how they interact with the eye tissues
- Evaluation of the internal eye, where we can often see changes to the retina and blood vessels that help in the diagnosis and management of potentially life-threatening disease; dilating drops may be used when necessary to allow for the most thorough evaluation of the internal tissues. Dr Walker was the first clinician locally to use retinal photography, which provides detailed images of the inside of the eye for evaluation and management of ocular disease
After the examination, if you demonstrate a need for vision correction, we are well qualified to assist you with the provision of whatever you request, whether it’s eyeglasses, sunwear, contact lenses or refractive surgery. We are proud to be the only office in the area with two Board certified opticians to take care of you.
We are committed to providing you with the highest level of service and most comprehensive examination you will ever have. The health of your eyes and visual system, which are related to many systemic conditions, such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure, is far too important to us to rush you through the exam process. We take the time to insure that you receive the most thorough exam possible, and that you fully understand everything that is found during your examination before you leave.
