An eye exam is the first thing we will do when you visit our optometry practice in Petersburg. During this, we will review your medical history, ask you to tell us your family medical history, and ask questions about any current issues that you are experiencing with your eyes.
We will then perform several eye tests. Our optometrists will check your eye function by evaluating your responsiveness to light, peripheral vision, eye muscle capabilities, color vision, and depth perception. As part of the comprehensive eye exam, we will also examine your overall eye health through tonometry and visual examinations. We will also look at your visual acuity to determine if you have a refractive error and need corrective eyewear to see properly.
Contact Lens Exams
Before prescribing contact lenses for you, we will first determine the level of vision correction you need. We look for farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. We will then determine what contact lenses are suitable for you. Our facility offers a variety of contact lenses, including specialty lenses who are hard to fit for contacts. We have lenses designed specifically for conditions such as keratoconus, dry eye, and astigmatism. In addition, we have toric lenses, rigid gas-permeable lenses, and soft contact lenses.
With the advancement of technology, you might find yourself spending most of your time on a computer or mobile screens. Unfortunately, with time, you might develop computer vision syndrome that has signs such as blurred vision, dry or scratchy eyes, headaches, eye discomfort, and strain. We can design a treatment plan to assist in relieving such symptoms. We will recommend measures to minimize computer eye strain issues, such as properly set up of your computer, adjusted lighting, eye rests, and blinking breaks.
We can also help with your sports vision. Our optometrists can help improve your visual acuity to better your athletic abilities. Many athletes do not realize they have a refractive error, so correcting this will improve your overall performance.
Eye Disease Screening
People with diabetes are more at risk for certain eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy. Our optometrists will look for this condition during routine eye exams. Early detection is essential for effective treatment.
Our eye doctors will also look for cataracts and other eye health issues.
