Eye Exam Image

At Ferguson Optical, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on your risk level.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, the doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your 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. The doctors will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists provide a regular vision acuity test as part of our comprehensive eye exam. Our doctors will measure how each eye is seeing by using a distance eye chart and a reading eye chart.  Depending on the results of your vision test, our doctors may prescribe corrective glasses or contacts.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate 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 properly. The test results enable our doctors to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of our comprehensive eye exam, our optometrists examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. The doctors visually inspect 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 may discuss possible treatments with you. Contact us today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
