Healthy eyes and sharper vision start with our comprehensive eye exams. First, we talk through any vision concerns and discuss your daily activities, such as computer use, reading, driving, and work tasks.

Then we examine your eyes for near and distance clarity and overall function, determine your glasses prescription and evaluate your ocular health. This includes testing for common eye diseases such as dry eye, cataracts, and macular degeneration. We will address your current concerns and detect issues that may affect your vision in the future.

Your questions are encouraged at every step in our exam procedure.

Special Eye Charts

There are some special eye charts that are used for various other purposes than the Snellen chart.

The first one of these special eye charts is the Astigmatic Mirror that is used to diagnose astigmatism.

If astigmatic looks at the lines near the center, some of the lines look darker in some directions than others.

A typical astigmatic will see the lines near the horizontal clearer and darker than the vertical ones. Horizontal lines may look spaced wider than the vertical ones, too!

Another one of the special eye charts is the Amsler Grid that is simply a square mesh of horizontal and vertical lines looking like this.

Focus one eye at the dot in the center

  • can u see the dot ?
  • can u see the four corners ?
  • are all the small squares visible ?
  • is there any curving of lines ?

Here is the Amsler Grid as it might appear to a person who is afflicted with age-related macular degeneration
