A comprehensive adult eye examination may include, but is not limited to the following tests:
- Analysis of the patient’s individual visual needs at home, work, school and social environment to accurately determine the patient’s visual demands and appropriate recommendation for preventative care.
- Diagnosis of the refractive status or prescription (focusing power of the eye)
- Binocular vision assessment (ability to see using both eyes together)
- Assessment of the health of the eye from external and internal (a dilated eye examination may be indicated)
- Neurological assessment of the visual system
- Eye pressure testing
Additional ocular testing may be needed based on the results of the previous tests to confirm or rule out possible underlying issues, to clarify uncertain findings, or to provide a more in depth assessment. These can include, but are not limited to tests such as retinal photography, gonioscopy, corneal topography, optic nerve or macular scans (advance OCT), automated visual field testing.
