Routine eye examinations are generally performed by an optometrist. To access your vision the doctor may use several different tests. During a refraction, the doctor puts the instrument called a phoropter in front of your eyes and shows you a series of lens choices. He or she will then ask you which of the two lenses in each choice looks clearer. Based on your answers, your eye doctor will continue to fine-tune the lens power until reaching a final eyeglass prescription.
There are several different types of instruments the doctor can use to visually examine the eye, an example of which is the ophthalmoscope or the slit lamp. During this part of the exam the doctor is looking for signs of various eye and medical problems. Drops may or may not be used to dilate the eyes so that the doctor can obtain a better look at the back of the eye.
If a possible health concern is detected the optometrist may refer you to a specialist to further diagnose and treat the condition. Because early diagnosis is key, regular eye examinations are recommended.
I have benefited tremendously from the eye care I received from Brandon Eye Associates
