About Eye Exams

General vision tests are quite routine to the majority of people. Children commonly receive vision screenings at school, and acuity tests are also necessary when renewing your driver's license. However, vision screenings don't address your total eye health. Consequently, having thorough eye exams on a regular basis is extremely important. People between the ages of 18 – 40 should get their eyes examined every two years while those over 40 should schedule eye evaluations roughly every 2 – 4 years. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), children should have their first eye evaluations around six months old.

At inVision Ophthalmology Tuscaloosa, comprehensive ocular health exams involve multiple important testing approaches that enable our team to check your total eye health. These tests are particularly important since several vision-threatening problems, such as macular degeneration, often don't have any symptoms. Keep an eye on your ocular health by scheduling routine appointments with our experienced team. We routinely treat patients of all ages and offer pediatric exams at our office in Tuscaloosa, AL.

What to Expect During an Eye Exam

Most eye exams at inVision Ophthalmology Tuscaloosa take about 30 – 90 minutes. Your evaluation will start with a basic visual acuity test to measure how clear your sight is. If this test shows that you would benefit from corrective lenses, we will likely perform refractive testing to establish your prescription. Your exam may also include tests that measure your peripheral vision, as well as how your eyes work together. Your doctor may also perform a slit lamp test to see a magnified view of your eyes and detect a number of eye conditions. We might need to dilate your pupils in order to thoroughly examine the health of the retina, retinal blood vessels, optic nerve, and the macula, as well as to look for signs of glaucoma. Even individuals who get great results need to continue to schedule eye exams every 2 – 4 years so that if any problems do arise, they can be detected and treated early.
