At Philip E. Stein, OD, we strive to provide the best eye care possible, during your comprehensive eye examination in Arizona you can expect:
During vision testing, your optometrist will perform vision testing at all distances using an eye chart. This measures the sharpness of your vision.
During color vision testing, your eye doctor will test for any possible eye health problems that may be affecting your ability to see all colors properly.
During glaucoma screenings, the “puff-of-air test” also known as non-contact tonometry is typically used to check the pressure inside of your eyes by blowing air onto the surface and checking resistance. Of even more importance is evaluating the appearance of the optic nerve by the doctor. This can uncover whether nerve damage is occuring, regardless of whether the intraocular pressures are in the normal or abnormal ranges.
Additional testing may also be performed including binocular vision/eye teaming evaluations, examination of the inside/outside of the eyes and more depending upon your eye health and any findings.
Typically, comprehensive eye examinations take about 30 minutes, however depending upon your eye health, eye care needs and any additional recommended testing it can vary.
When it comes to healthy adult patients, we recommend a comprehensive eye exam annually for everyone. Those with any eye-related conditions may need to visit more frequently.
