Below, we've also included a list of the most commonly asked questions about coming in for an eye exam.

 What occurs during my exam?

 Comprehensive exams are typically completed with dilation. At the time of your visit the doctor will look at the full spectrum of your eyes. The doctor will complete a refraction to determine your glasses prescription. Your eyes can be the gateway to your health, helping to diagnose high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and other medical conditions.

 What is a refraction?

 A refraction is the procedure done by the doctor to obtain a glasses/contact lens prescription. The question "Which is better, one or two?" is frequently used to help fine tune your vision. The doctor will release a prescription if necessary. This procedure is not covered by all insurance companies. Our refraction policy is available for review in our forms section.

 Why is my health and lifestyle information important?

 Every individual can expect to have their history reviewed in detail by the doctor to help determine the type of examination needed. Your environment and lifestyle plays a role a significant role in your visual and ocular health.

 Why do you have to dilate?

 Dilation enlarges your pupil which allows the doctor to obtain a full view of the retina. In some cases, dilation may not be needed.  After the drops are instilled you will notice an increased sensitivity to light and blurred near vision lasting approximately 2-4 hours.

 What is that blue light?

 The instrument using the blue light is called a Tonometer. At Eye Specialists, we use the process of applanation to measure the pressure in your eyes. A combination drop of yellow dye and numbing agent is instilled in each eye. Measurements are completed after the tip of the probe gently touches your eye. This is used in lieu of the ‘puff of air’ for pressure checks.
