Your eye examination at Northeast Vision Services provides a comprehensive analysis of your visual system and ocular health - it will last about 45 minutes. In addition to assessing your vision and determining your prescription, we will evaluate your eye muscles, focusing system, and peripheral vision. The health of your eyes will also be fully assessed, allowing your doctor to monitor for conditions such as:
- dry eye disease or blepharitis
- macular degeneration
- diabetic or hypertensive retinopathy
In order to get the best views of the internal structures of your eyes, we recommend dilation of the pupils. This will increase your light sensitivity and can impact your ability to focus your eyes well for up to a few hours after your examination. Some patients choose to bring a driver; some bring sunglasses for comfort.
Our office also provides more specialized examinations. For our contact lens wearers, a contact lens evaluation to assess fit, comfort, vision, and detailed corneal health is added as part of the comprehensive eye exam. We are also glad to set aside time to work with patients who are interested in trying contact lenses for the first time, or who are revisiting them after many years.
We can provide a consultation regarding options for corrective surgery, such as LASIK, PRK, or ICL. Once cataracts start to affect your vision, we can review lens implant options to best meet your visual needs and assist you in finding a surgeon to work with. If it is determined one of these procedures is right for you, our doctors will be a part of your care team throughout the process. Post-operative exams can often be completed at our office through the co-management process for your convenience.
Please feel free to contact us for a more problem-focused examination regarding the health of your eyes. Our doctors will be happy to see you for problems including:
- eye infection or pink eye
- foreign body in the eye
- flashes, floaters, or sudden changes or loss of vision
- evaluation of chronic conditions like dry eye, glaucoma, or ocular allergy symptoms
If you have any sudden changes or concerns about your eye health, please call our office at (614) 882-9131!
