Eye Exams

How does the visual system work?

We offer two types of eye exams; routine and developmental.

Routine Exams

Routine exams examine the health of the eye, including cornea, retina, intraocular lens and checks (refracts) if the patient has any need for prescription eyewear. This exam takes approximately 20 minutes.

During this exam, several tests are performed:

  • Visual Acuity
  • Color Blindness
  • Cover Test
  • Refraction
  • Slit lamp Exam
  • Glaucoma Test
  • Pupil Dilation


Developmental Eye Exams

Developmental Eye Exams are specialized exams done when a patient continues to have symptoms even after a refractive error has been detected and/or prescription eyewear is prescribed. This exam takes approximately 1 hour, and typically results in a recommendation for Vision Therapy.

During this exam, several measurements are performed in order to determine if the Visual System is functioning properly.

  • Eye Alignment - Near and Far
  • Focusing - Near and Far
  • Eye Teaming - Eye Tracking
  • Stamina of Eye muscles
  • Brain - Eye Interaction
  • Eye Fixation
  • Flexibility of the Visual System
