A comprehensive eye exam 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.
