Comprehensive Eye Exams

Thorough and Precise Vision Examination in Manhattan, NYC

Our sight is one of the most essential senses that play a crucial role in our daily lives. The ability to see the world around us seems so usual to us that it is easy to take it for granted. But imagine a life without being able to see your relatives and friends, to watch your favorite film or discover the planet’s most beautiful places… In the United States, 20% of all people over the age of 80 experience permanent vision loss. More females than males experience permanent vision loss. Three females for every two males experience visual acuity loss or blindness. We, at EuroOptica, are dedicated to providing convenient and comprehensive eye exams to help you maintain healthy vision.

Many problems with vision and eyes have no certain symptoms or signs, so it is important to have periodic examinations as a part of preventive health care. Remember that preventing vision loss with regular checking is simpler than treating serious problems. A comprehensive eye exam is a good method to ensure that your eyes are functioning well, so your vision is perfect. Our experienced eye care specialists recommend having a complete eye examination every two years to prevent various eye problems and find the best fitting eyeglasses or lenses or replace your current glasses if the vision correction is needed.

What does an eye exam include?

An eye exam contains a series of special procedures and tests to examine your eyes, plus evaluate the quality of vision and eye health. Our specialists conduct many different tests, ranging from simple ones, for example, reading an eye chart, to more complex tasks, such as checking the tissues inside your eyes with a powerful lens. We conduct a thorough eye examination for adults, which includes:

  • Patient’s personal or family health history to get the full anamnesis of ocular disease
  • Visual acuity testing with reading charts at a distance and near
  • Preliminary tests to define the response of the pupils to light, color vision, side vision, and depth perception
  • Evaluation of refractive status to determine the focusing power of eyes (this procedure helps to determine astigmatism, farsightedness, or nearsightedness)
  • Eye teaming, eye focusing, and eye movement tests to check out if both eyes work together well
  • Evaluation of eye health discovering all its structures and tissues
  • Additional procedures as needed

What to Expect?

Whether for kids or adults, eye exams are an important part of one’s general health maintenance. Our eyes should be checked on a regular basis to ensure that we are able to see as best as possible. For regularly scheduled eye exams, expect to answer some specific questions on any changes in your medical history since the last time you went to see your eye doctor. If this is your first visit, you’ll be asked to provide a more general medical history, including any vision problems your parents may have experienced, and a list of medications you’re currently taking. Additionally, you’ll have a series of vision tests that help determine the quality of your sight.

In general, a routine eye examination will take less than an hour depending upon the number of tests you undergo. These quick and easy procedures will help us to define your vision correction needs and find the best solution. We will provide you with precise results and give clear recommendations on how to improve your eye health.
