Eye and Vision Exams

Eye Exam ImageAt Precision Eye Care, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrists are able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, our optometrists will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Our doctors will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists provide regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Our doctors will measure how each eye is seeing by using a distance digital eye chart and a near reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, our doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or vision therapy.

Eye Function Testing

While clear, central vision is important, it is only 1 of 17 eye skills used in vision.  Because these other skills directly impact our ability to read, learn, be productive, and our visual comfort, our eye examinations also evaluate eye functionality.  This testing exceeds the State of Texas's required elements of an eye exam, and are not routinely performed by all optometrists.  Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and visual effort and to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable our doctors to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.  If our doctors find abnormal eye functionality, they may schedule you to return for a more comprehensive binocular vision or perceptual testing evaluation.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrists examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry.  We evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we recommend that every patient receive an Optomap retinal evaluation each year.  Many retinal conditions may not produce any symptoms until it's too late.  If something abnormal is seen during the Optomap evaluation, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, our doctors review the results and discuss any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (979) 985-5305 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
