Comprehensive eye exam

  Ophthalmologists use a wide variety of tests and procedures to examine your eyes. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a special lens to visualize the microscopic structures inside of your eyes.

   A comprehensive eye exam can take an hour or more, depending on the problem and a complexity of tests required to fully evaluate your vision and the health of your eyes.

   To obtain a better view of the eye's internal structures, eye doctor may instill dilating drops to enlarge your pupils. Pupil dilation is very important because it allows for the most thorough evaluation of the health of the inside of your eyes. When your pupils are dilated, you will be sensitive to light and will notice difficulty focusing up close. Though transient in nature, these effects may last for up to several hours.
