Our Morristown optometrist will ask if you have been experiencing any symptoms or issues with your eyes. Symptoms might include:
Our optometrist will also need to know if you are taking any medications, what your work environment is like, and how you are doing with your overall health. We will also discuss your family health history, and if you have had any previous eye or vision conditions. Our optometrist will use all of this information when prescribing treatments or providing recommendations.
Vision Testing - In order to help you have the clearest vision possible, our Morristown optometrist provides regular vision acuity testing. By using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart, we can measure how well each eye is seeing. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, our optometrist may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing- Another part of our comprehensive eye exams in Morristown involves testing the eye functionality. Several tests are performed to evaluate the following:
Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist will examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. The health of the eye is evaluated by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, your pupils may have to be dilated. Increased eye pressure can indicate glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. If after completing these tests it is determined you need further diagnosis or treatment, we have an ophthalmologist on staff that will be able to help.
