Eye Exam Q & A

What does a comprehensive eye exam entail?

Each portion of the exam contains its own important details. These details include the following:

Patient history

At the beginning of your visit, Dr. Hynes will ask about:

  • Your health history, including past eye conditions
  • Your family eye health history
  • Any current vision problems
  • Any environmental factors that may be affecting your eye health
  • Any medications you’re taking

Visual acuity

During this stage of the eye exam, Dr. Hynes will have you do a visual acuity exam. Her goal is to measure how clearly each of your eyes can see. From this portion of the eye exam, you’ll learn what type of vision you have, such as 20/20, 20/40, etc.

Preliminary tests

During preliminary tests, Dr. Hynes will evaluate aspects of your vision and eye health, such as:

  • Vision check
  • Eye muscle movement
  • Pupil response to light
  • Peripheral vision
  • Dilation- advise to have a driver

Refraction tests

During a refraction test, Dr. Hynes will put an instrument called a phoropter in front of your eyes in order to determine what lens strength will best correct your refractive problems, such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism. The phoropter is made up of a series of lenses that she will change as you look through it.

Eye focusing and movement testing

During these tests, Dr. Hynes will assess how well your eyes focus, work together, and move. If she finds anything that is preventing your eyes from excelling in any of these areas, she will discuss with you.

Supplemental testing

During this portion of a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Hynes will discuss her findings with you. If applicable, you’ll go over possible treatment options together.
