A comprehensive eye exam can prevent future problems and safeguard your vision
Our comprehensive eye exams screen for a number of visual disorders, from the common to the more obscure. This includes the refractive errors that plague tens of millions of Americans: shortsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.
We're excited to offer equally compassionate, detailed care to patients of all ages. And we'd love to help your younger loved ones enjoy a brighter future through the invaluable gift of clearer sight. We'll comprehensively check to see that your youngsters' vision and ocular physiology is progressing as it should. Similarly, we’re on the lookout for complications that may pop up during any age range, including the later-life afflictions like cataracts and presbyopia (age-related farsightedness) that occur in one’s 40s and onward.
And, should we detect any such developing complications, it will be much easier, less time-consuming, and more comfortable for your loved one to correct it preemptively.
Additionally, accustoming our young ones to ophthalmological care will make it much more likely that they'll hold onto these positive habits into adolescence and beyond, potentially setting them up for a lifetime of ocular wellness.
How can we help give you crisper, clearer, more vivid vision and healthier eyes?
Our comprehensive exam at Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center in Roseville, CA may include numerous aspects, each designed to ascertain some facet of your (or your loved one's) visual capacity and function. These include, but aren't limited to, some of the following:
An acuity test, which involves reading from the Snellen chart (with letters of various sizes) that you've no doubt seen before.
Perimetry tests one's visual field, checking for the width of visibility, as well as the presence of any blind spots and the ability to focus on a central point.
And since stereoscopic vision is so important, we check the eye's alignment to make sure that they work together correctly to focus on the same object.
Finally, by using what's known as a slit lamp and possibly a pupil dilation test, we can examine all the physical structures of the eye to see that they work well individually and in concert.
