Each patient visiting us for a comprehensive eye exam will have retinal screening photos taken. Often patients do not need dilation due to the high quality photos.
A routine eye exam begins by measuring visual acuity and performing a refraction to determine your best vision. How well you see at different distances (visual acuity) depends on how your eyes bend light to focus the picture properly (refraction). Eye doctors use the Snellen chart (a chart of letters or numbers of different sizes) to measure visual acuity. The degree to which you do not have normal vision is your refractive error. Your eyeglasses and contact lens prescriptions correct your refractive error. Common types of refractive errors are Myopia (nearsightedness), Hyperopia (farsightedness), and Astigmatism (the roundness of the eyeball).

These moderate powered lenses are useful for near tasks like reading, writing and handicrafts.
These lenses combine five special optical elements that create a larger, clearer, higher contrast image. One patient improved his gold score dramatically wearing them. Another explained, “This is the clearest I have seen in years.” They must be seen to be believed.
