Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but can be diagnosed during your eye exam.
During an eye exam, Drs. Henderson and MacIntyre will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision, 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. Drs. Henderson and MacIntyre will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
In addition to vision testing,we evaluate eye functionality. Our doctors 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 whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Henderson and MacIntyre to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
Regular vision evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. We provide regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam.
Dr. Henderson and MacIntyre evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests,the doctor reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at 704-817-3800 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
