Freedom comes in the form of an eye exam. Getting your eyes checked is vital to routine eye care. Our vision changes over time, whether or not you need bifocals. Eye care is more important than wearing glasses. Eye care plays a role in our overall wellbeing. Deteriorating vision can be a early warning of other health problems. Doctors can identify problems in their early stages by getting vision exams on a regular basis.
- Visual Acuity – You are probably the most familiar with this test. From a distance, you can see the letters in one eye and read the letters. The letters gradually decrease in size as the lower you go down the chart
- Retinoscopy – The optometrist uses a phoropter, which is a device that can be used in a phoropter. With all its moving parts, it seems that your optometrist will use a variety of lenses in front of your eyes to determine your optimal prescription
- Refraction Test – The optometrist performs two pairs of lenses using the phoropter once more. If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, this test will determine whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism
- Keratometry Test – The optometrist will determine the shape and curve of your cornea
- Peripheral Visual Test – Our peripheral vision is what we see on either side of the equation when looking forward (central vision). Humans have poor peripheral vision, according to the majority. It helps us detect movement and provides visual clues to our surroundings. This exam measures how much peripheral vision we have. A narrowing of our peripheral vision may indicate injury or disease
- Measurement of Intraocular Pressure – The optometrist will blow a puff of air into your open eye. The machine will determine the temperature, your eye's resistance, to the puff of air
The day also promotes other ways to care for your eyes. For example, take a break from the computer and take your eyes off the screen. Our eyes are strained by so much computer time. Make sure your settings aren't too bright. By adjusting your screen, you can minimize glare coming from a window or other light source. In addition, adjusting font settings on your computer can also reduce strain.
