A comprehensive eye exam is an evaluation of your complete eye and vision health. We’re proud to offer comprehensive eye exams for adults and children. You may wonder what is involved in getting a comprehensive eye exam, our exams include the following:
Complete eye and health history. Dr. Gill believes that most disease is caused by physiological, environmental or lifestyle imbalances. We’ll ask you some questions about your current health and lifestyle, and any medications you are taking.
Visual Acuity to assess the sharpness of your vision, usually using the “Big E” or Snellen chart.
Visual fields test to determine if you have blind spots or peripheral vision issues.
Cover Test, a test to determine how the eyes are working together and detect any ‘eye turn’ or strabismus.
Retinoscopy, autorefractor to approximate your eyeglass prescription.
Refraction to fine tune the final eyeglass prescription using a phoropter.
Slit Lamp exam to detect common eye diseases and conditions including dry eyes, cataracts and glaucoma. This instrument allows Dr. Gill to examine the structure of your eye to assess its health.
Glaucoma test, known as tonometry, measures the pressure within your eye.
Optos retinal imaging. Optomap is the only true, clinically validated, ultra-widefield technology that can capture 200° view of the retina in a single capture. With the use of this technology, we can detect many eye diseases that can otherwise go undetected.
