Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, Dr. David Schmolly and Rachel Carver will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Our optometrists will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Each eye will be measured by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, the optometrist may prescribe corrective glasses or contact lenses.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. David Schmolly and Dr. Rachel Carver to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. David Schmolly and Dr. Rachel Carver examine the overall health of the eye. Our optometrists evaluate eye health by visually inspecting all parts of the eye. We may dilate the pupils in order to examine the internal structures of the eye. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of an ocular disease or condition, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. David Schmolly and Dr. Rachel Carver review the results to determine the appropriate follow-up plan and to discuss any treatment options if necessary.
