Routine Eye Exams

What is a comprehensive eye exam?

 

A comprehensive eye exam focuses on your eye health and vision. At Elhosn Eye & Aesthetics, we customize comprehensive eye exams according to your age, your risk factors for eye disease, and your individual needs. The goal of comprehensive eye exams is to help your eyes stay healthy as you age. 

 

What happens during a comprehensive eye exam?

 

In general, we dilate your eyes for a comprehensive eye exam. Eye dilation is simple: just a couple of drops in your eye. It widens your pupils so we can examine the back structures in your eye, including the retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels around the retina. 

By examining these structures, we can check for damage related to glaucoma and other eye diseases. Some other things that we check during your exam include:

  • Eye lens (cataract check)

  • Eye pressure 

  • Visual acuity

  • Pupil light response

  • Depth perception

  • Color vision

  • Peripheral vision

  • Eye movement

  • Eye focusing

  • Eye teaming

 

After your comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Elhosn or Dr. Villas can issue a prescription to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia.
