What is a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

A comprehensive eye exam checks both your visual acuity and assesses your eyes for eye diseases. Additionally, your vision doctor will assess how well your eyes are working together and closely examine the health of your retina, adjacent blood vessels, and the optic nerve.

Why is a Comprehensive Eye Exam Important?

Many people think a visit to their eye doctor is to make sure they can see clearly, but it’s also extremely important to check for eye diseases. Certain conditions, like macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy, can permanently damage your vision — however, an annual comprehensive eye exam can detect these diseases before symptoms emerge. This means you and your doctor can proactively protect your sight before long-term damage is done.

At Levin, we have everything we need to find oddities in your vision and protect your eye health. Our Optos and autorefractors will get a crystal-clear look at your eyes and their vision. Our OCT can find any issue in or around the retina, and state-of-the-art tech like our Oculus Pentacam® or Argos® biometer can gather highly specific information on your cornea, eye curve, eye length, and more. Our team has the expertise to use your eye exam results to their fullest potential — and ensure that your every need is met.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is a vision test the same as an eye exam?

No, a vision test measures your ability to see over specific distances. You know at least one part of this test: it’s where your vision doctor repeatedly asks, “Which is clearer, number one or number two?”

A proper, comprehensive eye exam is a total evaluation of your eyes, which includes your sight and eye health — it includes tests for eye pressure and health problems, and is used to detect conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, myopia, and diabetic retinopathy.

What types of eye exams are available?

There are a few different eye exams available, which are tailored for different patient needs. Pediatric eye exams, for instance, are designed specifically for children and adolescents, and include tests for conditions that commonly impact that age group, like myopia, strabismus, and amblyopia. Diabetic eye exams are given to patients with diabetes, to check and see if their diabetes has impacted their retina and other back-of-the-eye tissue.

What is an astigmatism eye test?

This test gauges whether a patients’ eyes have an irregular shape, and measures how light rays bend as they enter the eye through the cornea. This tells us how severe your astigmatism is, and allows us to correct for the condition in your visual prescription.

What is an eye refraction test?

The eye refraction test is how we determine your prescription. This involves the patient looking through a phoropter to pick out the best lens choice for their vision prescription.

What is an eyeglass or optical eye test?

Optical eye tests describe a series of several tests — which includes the eye refraction test — to measure what prescription will fully correct your vision with eyeglasses and correct for refractive errors like astigmatism or myopia.

What is a visual acuity test?

This measures the sharpness of your vision, and is performed using the famous Snellen letter chart, which the patient reads at a standard 20/20 distance. This test identifies how well you can see at both near and far distances and is one of the most well-known and enduring features of any eye doctor appointment.
