An Adult Eye Examination

What To Expect

It is extremely important for every adult to have a comprehensive eye examination every year. Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting eye disease. Early detection of eye disease will help prevent vision loss and allow for a choice of treatment options.

At El Paso Eyecare we utilize the latest, state of the art technology to provide you with a comfortable, non-invasive and fully detailed examination of your eyes. An eye examination should take approximately one hour and we will be happy to answer any questions that you have .

An exam begins with preliminary testing that will be performed by a skilled optometry assistant. These tests will provide your optometrist with important information regarding the health, size and shape of your eye to better detect the possibility of optical diseases, refractive problems and other issues.

The Preliminary Testing Includes:

  • Autorefractor - an instrument that measures the shape of your eye which helps our optometrists determine the best corrective prescription options.
  • Visual Field Screening - this exam tests for any issues with peripheral vision and the possibility of eye disease.
  • Optomap Retinal Imaging - a specialized digital camera is used to take a high resolution image of the retina. This diagnostic tool is very helpful in the diagnosis of eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

The Doctor's Examination:

After the preliminary testing your optometrist will perform a thorough examination of your eyes which will include some additional testing.

  • Tonometry - this instrument tests the pressure in your eye which could indicate the possibility of Glaucoma.
  • Slit Lamp Examination - this state of the art equipment offers a magnified view of the front of the eye to screen for optical diseases such as cataracts, corneal issues and dry eye syndrome.
  • Ophthalmoscopy - this is used to examine different parts of the eye including the optic nerve, retina and macula.
  • Topography and Keratometry - these exams are used to measure the cornea for contact lens fittings and for LASIK surgery evaluation.
