Eye examinations should be a routine and integrated part of your overall health examinations. An eye exam isn’t solely meant for people with weak vision, or those currently looking for glasses; it’s also meant for those with perfect vision and eyesight. Regular eye examinations help you identify the slightest changes in your visual acuity, which, in turn, allows you to proactively prevent your sight from worsening. At Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry, we use the results from eye exams to curate the ideal eye care routine.

Your Comprehensive Eye Exam Includes…

Medical History Discussion

To provide optimal eye care solutions, optometrists must have a baseline understanding of your general health and medical history. We achieve just that with our comprehensive eye exams. After all, your eye health doesn’t exist in a silo outside your body, everything is connected, and everything must be considered. The exam will start with a discussion of your medical history, including the following subjects:
History of eye diseases, infections, or other eye problems.

  • Existing vision problems or concerns.
  • Existing or past health problems — hypertension, high blood pressure, etc.
  • Whether you’re a smoker or nonsmoker.
  • Other risk factors for eye problems.

Eye Teaming Tests

Sometimes, your eyes don’t function correctly as a team, i.e., the two individual eyes may have different problems. Amblyopia (lazy eye) is a condition wherein your brain only processes inputs from one eye, making it a great example of your eyes not working well together. With eye teaming tests, the optometrist measures how well your eyes work individually and collectively, ensuring accurate diagnosis and treatments.

Eye Health Tests

At Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry, we provide a wide range of eye health tests to diagnose specific eye concerns. The optometrist administers a slit lamp test or pupil dilation test to examine the inner structures of your eye. They also administer tests to measure the pressure within your eyes to diagnose glaucoma, a group of eye problems that damage the optic nerves responsible for optimal vision. Our eye exams at Eastlake diagnose the root cause of all your vision problems to ensure accurate treatments.

Visual Acuity Tests

After the initial discussion, the eye doctor will take you through the first test — the Snellen Eye Chart. You’re probably already aware of this visual acuity test — you’ll have to read a chart with numerous letters and symbols, and the eye doctor will use these results to measure your ability to see from various distances.

Refraction Tests

“Refractive errors” are vision problems occurring due to your eyes’ inability to bend light correctly, leading to blurry vision. The most common forms of refractive errors are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (loss of vision with age), and astigmatism (blurry vision due to an irregular cornea). Optometrists diagnose the root cause of your vision problems with refraction tests and subsequently determine the ideal strength and type of corrective lenses necessary.

The Importance of Regular Eye Exams at Eastlake

At Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry, we provide a wide range of eye tests that accurately measure your eye health. Regular eye exams allow us to diagnose and treat possible eye problems as soon as they crop up. They also allow us to track your overall eye health over an extended period. If we notice any troubling signs or patterns, our eye doctors proactively diagnose and treat the issue at the earliest stage possible. Our ultimate goal is to ensure you maintain optimal eye health and visual acuity for your entire life. We strive to give the very best results and that's why patients come to us for eye exams.
