Our friendly and knowledgeable staff strives to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventive 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 doctor will be able to provide treatment options and in many cases restore vision or prevent vision loss.
Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, your doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision or visual discomfort, 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. The doctor will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists will provide a vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. The doctor will measure how each eye is seeing by using advanced modern technology. In addition to eye exams and vision testing, your doctor will provide various other tests to determine the health of your eyes. Depending on the results of the vision test, the doctor may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our North Hollywood office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine the health of your eyes. The test results enable the doctor to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our doctors examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination. Our doctors will evaluate your eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a intense light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. After completing these short tests, the doctor will review the results and discuss treatments with you. Contact us at 818-982-0076 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
