Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam our doctors will visit about any concerns,questions, and symptoms you may be experiencing with your vision . Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Hurley will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our doctors provide a regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. They will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision is the goal we try to achieve for our patients. The doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or vision therapy if needed .
Eye Function Testing
Also to vision testing, an eye exam in our Rigby office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to check depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together . The test results enable Dr. Hurley to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Rigby optometrists examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry.They 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, they review the results and discuss any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (208) 745-0181 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
