Eye & Vision Exams

  

At Rouse Family Eye Care, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, your doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Your doctor will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our doctors provide regular vision acuity testing as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Your doctor will measure how each eye is seeing by using an computerized acuity system. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, our doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

               

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable your doctor to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our doctors examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination, tonometry, and retinal examination. Our doctors evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, your doctor will review the results and discusses an treatments with you. Contact us at (954) 384-6200 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

Ancillary Testing

An computerized iWellness evaluation is recommend to obtain a baseline reading of the retinas' nerve fiber layer thickness and macular health.  Automated threshold visual field testing is utilized to determine the extent of a patients peripheral vision and optic nerve health.  Photography of the retina and other parts of the eye allow the doctors to monitor eye conditions or obtain a baseline for healthy eyes.
