Eye Tests & Examinations
A comprehensive eye test or examination can take an hour or more, depending and the number and complexity of tests required to fully evaluate your vision and the health of your eyes.
Among the first tests performed in a comprehensive eye exam are visual acuity tests that measure the sharpness of your vision.These usually are performed using a projected eye chart to measure your distance visual acuity and a small, hand-held acuity chart to measure your near vision. Many people don’t go to the optometrist unless they have blurred vision, and if they don’t wear glasses they miss that opportunity to get their eye health checked. We encourage people to go to the optometrist regularly so that if there are any early signs of problems, they can be detected and treated before they become major issues.
