We Test Much More than Your Vision
Regular eye examinations are a critical part of preventive health care for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a toddler, teenager or retiree – our professional evaluations of your vision and eye health will help keep you seeing sharp.
At Garden Grove Optometry, we’ll inspect your eyes thoroughly, inspecting for any vision conditions or signs of ocular disease.
Our office is fully equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic tools, and we welcome patients from the whole region to benefit from our first-rate, friendly service and highly accurate eye exams.
Eye care experts recommend you have a complete eye exam every year to asses your risk for potentially damaging eye conditions, as well as to keep on top of any changes in vision you may be experiencing.
What happens at a comprehensive eye exam?
Each and every patient at our Garden Grove, CA, practice, is a unique individual with unique visual demands. Depending upon your health issues, age and vision requirements, we customize our eye exams to match your needs.
Here’s a basic step-by-step breakdown of what your eye exam may include:
- Medical case history: this is the time to tell us about any ocular symptoms or vision problems you may be experiencing. We’ll also ask you for information about current medications, your overall health condition and family history of eye problems.
- Preliminary eye tests: we’ll assess your eye muscle mobility, peripheral awareness, color vision and reaction of your pupils to light.
- Accommodation (focusing) and Eye teaming/Binocularity: your eyes must function together efficiently in order to see well. These neurological screenings are a way to evaluate how your eyes work together to focus, and how effectively your eyes switch focus between near and far.
- Visual acuity and Refraction: Automated and manual (doctor-controlled) instruments will be used to determine the most accurate vision prescription.
- You’ll be requested to read a standard eye chart that tests vision at various distances. The normal measurement is defined as 20/20 vision. We’ll also use a phoropter to check refractive error and diagnose nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. This procedure is done by having you look through various lenses and tell us which give you the clearest vision. We may also use a retinoscope to measure how well light focuses on your retina with each of these respective lenses.
- Visual Field Testing: If necessary, we’ll use computerized equipment to assess your ability to see to your side, above and below.
- Review and Consultation: after we finish all of the testing and examinations, we will meet with you in our Garden Grove, CA, office to share our findings. Together, we will decide upon the ideal treatment plan or vision correction for you.
