Eye & Vision Exams
We strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventive and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. The American Optometric Association recommends bi-yearly eye and vision exams if you are not at risk, and yearly vision exams if you are at risk.
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 to provide treatment options and, in many cases, restore vision or prevent vision loss.
Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, Dr. Bermudez 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. Dr. Bermudez 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. We provide regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Bermudez will measure how each eye is seeing by using an eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction. 20/20 is the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Bermudez may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Dr. Bermudez will perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests will be completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Bermudez to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Bermudez will examine the overall health of the eye through a slit lamp examination and tonometry. Dr. Bermudez will 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. We use tonometry to measure eye pressure because increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma. After completing these short tests, Dr. Bermudez will review the results and discuss any necessary treatment options with you.« Back to Services
