What to expect during your visit?
- Patient History – You will be asked about your general and eye health.
- Vision Testing – You will read from a chart to test your visual function.
- Tonometry – The pressure in your eyes will be measured.
- Dilation – Your pupils will be dilated. Dilation makes your pupils open wide so that the doctor can get a clear view of the inside of your eye. Dilation will make your eye sensitive to light and typically lasts up to 3 hours. Many patients prefer to bring someone to drive them to and from appointments.
- Eye Exam – Your doctor will perform a thorough examination of your eyes.
- Other Testing – Depending on your eye condition you may require additional testing.
