MORE THAN JUST A GLASSES PRESCRIPTION
EYES ARE THE WINDOWS TO YOUR HEALTH
A comprehensive eye exam (CEE) is a physical for the eye. A CEE assesses ocular, visual and binocular system as well as eyeglass prescriptions. A CEE can help in detection of systemic conditions like Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Sjogrens Syndrome, Gastrointestinal Conditions like Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis and many more. Through a CEE our team can detect, treat and manage eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, etc.
Our Comprehensive Eye Exams includes (but not limited to):
1- A detailed Case History, including past and present visual and medical issues.
2- Assessment of patient visual needs at home/work/school/play.
3- Assessment of vision and refractive status (aka – glasses prescription)
4- Assessing Binocular Visual System: how the eyes work together as a team.
5- Assessing Neurological, ocular motility and peripheral visual system.
6- Assessing Color vision and stereoscopic (3D) vision.
7- Assessing Anterior eye health
8- Assessing pressure inside the eye; screening for Glaucoma
9- Assessing posterior eye health with dilation; looking inside the eye at the Optic Nerve and Retina.
10- Analysis of the results from the eye exam. Educating the patient on the results and making professional recommendations/treatment/management plans to improve the vision of our patients.
Further testing may be required based on the results of the previous tests.
