Conducting an eye exam or visual screening is the most effective way that our ophthalmologist can check for most eye conditions. Checking a patient’s vision and detecting problems can require a number of steps. Your NYC eye doctor may perform tests such as:
These measure the accuracy of vision with the use of a standardized chart placed 20 feet away. The doctor tests each eye and expresses its acuity as a fraction. This information can be used to optimize vision correction solutions.
Refraction errors are common vision concerns and can be corrected with the help of eyeglasses or contact lenses. During this test, our Manhattan eye doctors will try out different lenses to see which provide the best vision correction.
This is used to determine how the retina of the eye focuses light. It is sometimes used to help determine what vision correction prescription is required.
Often used in the detection of blind spots, this assessment tests the vertical and horizontal peripheral vision field.
A bright lamp and magnifying glass is used to examine the lens, iris, and the cornea, a thin layer of tissue responsible for processing light into visual information.
This evaluation tests the pressure inside the eye. High pressure can indicate the development of health concerns like glaucoma, which can lead to vision loss.
Regular eye exams and visual screenings are important to ensure that eyes are in excellent health. Many common eye diseases, including glaucoma and macular degeneration, can be effectively managed if detected early enough. Patients can see the world more clearly with the help of Dr. Schottenstein.
