Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye examination, our doctors at Theobald Family Eye Care, 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 or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Our doctors of optometry 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 optometrists 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. Our doctors will then perform a refraction, a test that determines the refractive power of they eye. Depending on the results of your vision test, corrective glasses and/or contacts may be prescribed.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye examination in our Duluth offices include testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable the optometrists at Theobald Family Eye Care to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye examination, our Duluth optometrists examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Our optometrists evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and an illumination source. 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 evaluations, our optometrists review the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you.
