Eye Healthcare and Exams

Eye Health Care and Exams

Screening or routine eye health examinations serve to diagnose previously undetected vision disorders that can potentially threaten one’s vision. As part of a routine eye health exam, our doctors examine your eyes to assess your vision, determine the need for glasses as well the general health of your eye. A comprehensive eye exam consists of the following elements:

-Review of patient’s overall health and medical history, family history and ocular history
-Visual acuity and refraction to determine eyeglass prescription
-Basic eye tests such as ocular motility, pupil reactivity and peripheral vision
-Intraocular pressure to screen for glaucoma
-Examination of the eye itself, including dilation of the pupils to examine the retina
-Common eye conditions that we screen for in a routine eye exam include cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and dry eye syndrome
-Because the eye exam consists of several components, as well as pupil dilation, please allow for 60 to 90 minutes.
-If you are a contact lens wearer looking for a contact lens fitting, please note that this will be a separate appointment from your routine eye health appointment. A contact lens appointment will ensure proper fit of your lenses as well as lens care.

Everyone needs routine eye health exams. To schedule an exam with an eye doctor at Physicians Eye Care please call 410-964-8285 or 410-644-9515.
