An eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your eye vision and check for eye diseases. Your eye doctor may use a different types of instruments, shine bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses. Each test during an eye checkup evaluates a different aspect of your eye health.
Here are some eye vision tests that you are likely to encounter during a comprehensive eye exam or checkup:
1. Visual Acuity Tests
2. Color Blindness Test
3. Cover Test
4. Ocular Motility (Eye Movements) Testing
6. Slit Lamp Exam
7. The Glaucoma Test
8. Pupil Dilation
9. Visual Field Test
10. Other Eye Tests
An eye exam helps detect eye problems at their earliest stage — when they're most treatable. Regular eye exams give your eye care professional a chance to help you correct or adapt to vision changes and provide you with tips on caring for your eyes.
It depends in part on your age and also on your eyes and family.
If you’re younger than 40 and have no eye problems, your doctor might suggest you get routine tests every 2 years. Or he could tell you that you don’t need any tests. Ask what he thinks is best for you.
If you’re 40 or older, you should get your eyes checked every 1 to 2 years.
You need to check to see if you have serious, sometimes "silent" problems that can affect your vision, like:
• Age-related macular degeneration
The cost of an eye exam can vary significantly, based on where you live and other factors, including:
• Whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist
• The tests that are included in the exam
• Whether the exam includes a contact lens fitting or other contact lens-related service
