During an eye exam, our doctors 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 conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Our doctors will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Langley Optometrists provide regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Our doctors will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. 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 doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Vision Development and Performance
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Langley office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Langley optometrists examine the overall health of the eye through using fundus photography and state of the art retinal imaging. Our doctors 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. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, our doctors review the results and discusses treatments with you. Contact us at 604-455-0477 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
