Types of Eye Exams
At Medina Eye Care, we focus our eye exams on evaluating your eye health, function, and vision. In conducting a comprehensive exam, we will conduct the following tests.
Consultation and Eye Exams
When conducting an eye exam, our eye doctor will ask you some questions regarding your symptoms or any other issues that you are currently experiencing. We will ask questions about your medical history, family history, and any medications you are using. Later on, our eye doctors will consider your information in designing a treatment plan that suits you and your conditions.
Eye Function Testing
An eye exam at our Medina Eye Care practice will entail testing the functioning of your eyes. In this case, our optometrist will conduct different tests to evaluate your responsiveness to light, peripheral vision, eye muscle capabilities, color vision, and depth perception. We will also conduct other tests to determine if you can move and focus your eyes properly.
Our eye doctor in San Antonio offers vision acuity tests when conducting a comprehensive vision exam. In this case, we will measure the vision of your eyes using a reading eye chart and a wall eye chart. Depending on the results we will get from the vision exam, we might prescribe contact lenses or corrective glasses.
During an eye exam, we will also conduct a general examination of the health of your eyes. In this case, our doctor will inspect your eyes using special magnification equipment. We might dilate your pupils so that we can examine your internal eye components. We will look for any eye issues or diseases. For example, if we notice an increased eye pressure, that will indicate that you have glaucoma.
Eye Exam Mechanisms We Use
Our state-of-the-art vision technology offers comprehensive eye illness diagnostic capabilities to our eye doctors. The diagnostic capabilities include using instruments to detect cornea issues and diseases. Also, through an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) test, our eye doctor can examine your eyes and determine eye issues that you might have.
Additionally, we can determine what frames work best for your face if you wear glasses. We offer a wide variety of frames and sunglasses.
