Visual acuity test – A standardized eye chart is used to determine near and far vision in both eyes (with and without current glasses or contact lenses).

Computerized visual field testing – This form of testing assesses your total field of vision. Many eye and general diseases (such as brain tumors, vascular problems, glaucoma and diabetes) show visual field defects as an early sign.

Eye muscle coordination testing – This tests your eye muscle control and assures your eyes are working together. Lack of eye muscle control is an often-overlooked reason for reading difficulty or crossed eyes in children.

Eye focus testing – By testing the ability of your eyes to focus from far to near and near to far, we can fine tune your prescription to enhance vision performance and comfort.

Refraction – This determines the prescribed amount of lens power in your eye glasses or contact lenses for seeing clearly and comfortably.

Glaucoma testing, tonometry (eye pressure testing) – Evaluation includes peripheral vision testing, examination of your optic nerves and testing your eye pressure. These tests are important in diagnosing glaucoma, which results from too much fluid pressure in your eyes. This can lead to vision loss or blindness if not treated. There are no symptoms of glaucoma until later stages. It can only be detected through an eye examination.

NFA (Nerve Fiber Analysis) – High-tech automated analysis of your nerve fiber layer thickness to closely monitor glaucoma suspects.

Slit-lamp biomicroscopy - This is a microscopic examination of your eye (including the iris and cornea) and detailed examination of your retina. It is very critical in healthy contact lens care.

Dilation of your eyes – Dilation uses drops to enlarge your pupil for close internal eye health analysis. Internal examination includes evaluation for cataracts, glaucoma, optic nerve damage, retinal diseases and signs of general health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and others.

Binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy – This involves looking inside your dilated eyes for an overall view of your retina. This is especially useful for detecting retinal holes and detachments, which often have no symptoms.

Direct ophthalmoscopy – This provides intense magnification to examine smaller areas in the back of your eye, particularly the optic nerve and blood vessels.

Macular Pigment testing – New technology to measure a risk factor for Macular Degeneration. If measured macular pigment levels are low (indicating high risk), a supplement may be recommended to measurably increase protective macular pigment. Normal levels of macular pigment will facilitate the health of your eyes and increase peace of mind.

Dry eye evaluation and treatment – Symptoms of this condition are grittiness, burning, redness or watering. Treatment options will be discussed.

Orthokeratology – a procedure to reduce near-sightedness using a series of specialized gas-permeable contact lenses to reduce the dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The procedure is as safe as wearing contact lenses and is reversible.
