Our eye exam in Pelham includes a variety of tests that will determine your vision needs as well as gauge your eye health. Annual eye exams are recommended for all of our valued customers. As your vision changes with time, so too will your prescription lenses. And common eye diseases form and progress without any signs to alert you. At Metro Optics, we’re committed to early detection of such problems and helping you to achieve the best corrected vision you’re capable of.
Among the tests designed to measure your vision are one for visual acuity, which is essentially reading from an eye chart. A retinoscopy and a refraction test are also essential. If you need prescription lenses, it will be decided along with what strength you require. Your peripheral vision is checked via a visual field test. And our eye doctor will also examine your eye muscle movement, the whites of your eyes, and your eyelids for any possible abnormalities. All parts of your eyes are checked during our eye exam in Pelham, including your corneas, irises, lenses, and anterior chamber. Screening you for eye diseases involves such tests as tonometry for glaucoma, which measures your internal eye pressure; and a slit-lamp exam for cataracts. These are the baseline tests, and others may be done in order to reach a conclusive diagnosis. Some eye diseases, like diabetic retinopathy, are only applicable in specific circumstances (if you have type one or type two diabetes). Macular degeneration is only a concern from age 40 and up. And if a new or updated prescription for glasses or contacts is called for, we will fill it for you right here, so you can be confident in the quality of the final product.
