A comprehensive vision exam is so much more than your typical eye refraction for a prescription. At Johnson i-Care we believe in being thorough and precise. We utilize an array of tools spanning from tried and true classics to the latest in cutting edge digital technology. When you arrive for your vision exam, you may be surprised at the level of detail we will gather, to assess not only your current eye health but also your overall well-being. We choose to be proactive because in many cases, our eyes are the first window in which symptoms begin to present themselves well before the rest of our body catches on, not only of severe vision conditions such as macula degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts, but also of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease, to name just a few.
During your comprehensive vision exam your eye doctor may perform several tests and evaluations. This is to provide you with not only the most accurate assessment of your eye possible but also to ensure that if a new prescription is needed, that it is on point and as accurate as it can possibly be.
Some of the tests that you may have done include assessments for:
Visual Acuity, Retinoscopy Refraction, Visual Field, Pupil Dilation, Slit Lamp Exam, Color Blindness Evaluation, Ocular Motility Test, Glaucoma Screening, Cataract Assessment and OCT Retinal Imaging Scan as well as the latest digital exam called Clarifye.
Not all of these tests may be performed at your visit, however, having the option and the ability to perform these tests as needed are what make the eye exam you get at our Hendersonville, TN office one of the most comprehensive exams around.
