Comprehensive Medical Exam
Our comprehensive medical optometrists perform comprehensive examinations to evaluate the health of the eye. This involves a refraction, measuring the intraocular pressure, dilation of the eye, and thorough examination of the cornea, lens, optic nerve and retina. A comprehensive medical examination of the eye can detect conditions such as corneal disease, cataract, secondary cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, floaters, retinal tears and detachments, and many other conditions. Often times specialized imaging tests will be performed to aid in the diagnosis and treatment decisions. Our comprehensive medical optometrists have all completed an ocular disease residency training program after finishing optometry school. During an ocular disease residency, the optometrist receives specialty training to evaluate, diagnose, and treat medical diseases of the eye. These doctors work closely with our subspecialists and surgeons to manage the health of your eye. Your eye doctor will refer you to one of our subspecialists if further evaluation or treatment is necessary.
