All Towne Vision Optical
Doctors of Optometry are State Licensed, highly
qualified, experienced, dedicated and caring.
Doctors of optometry diagnose, treat and assess
ocular health as well as determine if vision
correction is needed.
Comprehensive Eye Examination
Annual eye exams are
recommended as a part of preventative health care.
Individuals can be unaware of problems because there
are often no obvious signs or symptoms. It is
important to detect and treat vision problems early
in order to maintain good vision and eye health. Eye
exams may include:
– Checks the patient’s
general health, medication usage, family history
and symptoms, etc.
– Evaluates how clearly each eye is seeing. Also
known as the "Snellen Chart", this tests
distance and near vision. Normal distance visual
acuity is 20/20. If you have 20/20 vision, you
are seeing clearly at the appropriate distance.
This is only an indication of visual clarity and
other skills that contribute to overall vision.
– Evaluates specific aspects of visual function
and eye health.
– Measures the curvature of the cornea, the
clear outer surface of the eye. This is
important for determining the "base curve" of
the contact lenses.
– Determines the appropriate lens power to
compensate for nearsightedness, farsightedness
Eye Focusing, Eye Teaming,
and Eye Movement Testing
– Asses accommodation, ocular motility and
binocular vision to determine how well the eyes
function individually and together.
– Ability of both eyes to work together. The
brain fuses the images each eye sees in order to
create one clear picture. Eye coordination is a
developed skill and done properly, keeps the
eyes in proper alignment. Poor eye coordination
is often successfully treated with eyeglasses or
the correction of other eye conditions, such as
nearsightedness and farsightedness.
Eye Health Evaluation
– Examines the external parts of the eye,
including the cornea, eyelids, conjunctiva and
surrounding eye tissue. In addition, the
patient’s pupils may be dilated to evaluate the
internal parts of the eye, including the lens,
retina and posterior section. Doctors will also
measure the pressure within the eye to detect
– Additional testing to confirm or rule out
possible problems, and to provide clarification
or further assessment.
