Need an emergency eye exam? We will usually be able to accommodate you the same day. Also available are evening and weekend appointments.
A basic eye exam usually begins with the experts at Vision World taking a medical history and asking questions about your general health and past and current eye problems. During the examination, three areas of eye function are assessed: visual acuity and refraction, binocular vision (how the eyes work together), and eye health.
Dr. Daniel Kretch O.D. may conduct a refraction test which helps determine the extent of a patient's refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism), as well as the proper prescription for glasses and contact lenses.
A retinal camera is often used, as well as a hand held ophthalmoscope, to determine the health of the back of the eye, the retina. This examination can help to detect eye disease such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma and systemic disease such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
