What to Expect During an Eye Exam

Your eye doctor will perform several tests during your eye exam. These tests will help determine your overall eye health and can find any problems before they lead to permanent vision loss.

 

  • Visual acuity test: This is usually the first test we’ll do and it’s one that we’re all familiar with. We’ll use a chart and measure both distant and close visual acuity
  • Cover test: Performed along with the visual acuity test but while one eye is covered. This test for strabismus and binocular vision, which are both symptoms of a lazy eye.
  • Color Blindness Test: This screening test helps the physicians detect any color blindness problems
  • Ocular Motility Testing: Your eye doctor will have you follow an object with just your eyes to test for eye movement problems
  • Stereopsis Test: This test measures your depth perception and ability for your eyes to work together
  • Retinoscopy and Refraction: These tests are used to determine your eye prescription
  • Autorefractor and Aberrometer: Sometimes these tests will be performed before you see the eye doctor. You’ll rest your chin on the instrument, which will automatically estimate your eye prescription strength
  • Slit Lamp Exam: Your eye doctor will use powerful magnification tools to examine the structures of your eye such as your retina, cornea, optic nerve, and iris. This test is important to determine if you have eye health problems
  • Glaucoma Test: This is also known as the “puff of air test” and is vital to catching glaucoma problems
  • Pupil Dilation: Your eye doctor will place drops in your eyes, which dilate your pupils and allow the doctor to look inside your eyes for a thorough evaluation of your eye health
  • Visual Field Test: This helps test your peripheral vision and can determine blind spots caused by glaucoma or even determine specific areas of brain damage from stroke

If you have any questions about these test, feel free to ask! We always try to keep you informed and let you know what’s going on during your exam.

What to Expect After Your Exam

If you’re eyes were dilated, then you can expect to have difficulty with your nearsighted vision for a few hours. Your next steps will be determined by whether or not you need corrective devices or if you needed vision correction surgery.

Getting Fitted for Contacts

If you’re planning to get contact lenses, then after your exam is complete, you’ll be fitted with new contacts. Your eye doctor will determine which lenses will work best for your eyes and give you a pair of new contacts to wear for the week.

Your doctor will take a look at your eyes with your new contacts in to see how well they fit your eye shape. You’ll be scheduled for a follow up appointment in about a week in which the doctor will see how comfortable your contacts are. If you’re satisfied with your contacts, then we’ll discuss ordering a supply of new contacts for you.

If You Would Like Eyeglasses

For most people, we’ll give you a prescription for eyeglasses unless you specifically request contact lenses or if you come in wearing contacts. We can also order your new eyeglasses along with contacts. It all depends on what you need!

If you’re getting glasses, then after your exam is complete, we’ll give you time to look at the frames. We have friendly associates on hand to help you determine which ones will work best for your face, your budget, and your specific lenses. After you select your frames, we’ll order your new glasses and frames. We’ll also be able to tell you when to expect your new eyeglasses to come in.

Professional service and staff. I have been twice with different doctors and both were very thorough and efficient. The wait was a little long the second visit, but the place was buzzing, so very understandable. Eyeglass frames are a bit expensive as most are at any optician outside of Walmart, but I don’t mind paying a little more for higher quality and better fashion.read more

I am so pleased with Dr Stackhouse and the entire staff at Coastal Vision Center. Everyone is friendly, welcoming, professional and helpful. I have always been seen on time, everything explained as we go through the eye exams and solutions are recommended. Everything is done efficiently and easily. And I want to mention that everyone was friendly and personable. They made me feel comfortable about a procedure I needed and their knowledge and professionalism made it easy to trust that all would be well. Indeed all is well…and my eyesight is 20/20 again. I will definitely be seeing these great folks again for my yearly check up.read more

Saw me same day for eye issue. I just moved and had no doc here. Extremely thorough and professional evaluation by Dr Shelby, then saw Dr McClane who referred me to a retina specialist. I have long history of experience with all kinds of eye docs and these folks are professional and personal.read more

Very professional office. Opticians, optometrists, and ophthalmologists are available for any eye care needs you have. Not the cheapest, but if you value your eye health and vision, this is the place to go.read more

Dr McClane rocks! He is the perfect doc, quick at figuring out what is going on gives excellent care, it’s kind focused, professional and he has a really great staff. His associate, and intern on ophthalmology was stellar, I hope he keeps her! They have a fabulous assortment of glasses they are not pushy and reasonably priced. Now if only they would open up the swimming pool to patients… lol! Great group recommend them highlyread more
