What does a comprehensive eye exam include?

Your optometrist will determine what tests are needed based on your medical history.

However, most comprehensive eye exams include the following:

  • Visual acuity to test the sharpness of your vision, usually with an eye chart
  • Visual fields test to check for blind spots in your vision
  • Retinoscopy to estimate your eyeglass prescription
  • Refraction to determine your exact eyeglass prescription

  • Retinal photo screenings to test for diabetic retinopathy
  • Tonometry to test for glaucoma
  • Ophthalmoscopy to examine the optic nerve, retina, and blood vessels

How often should I get a comprehensive eye exam?

We always recommend annual eye exams. A lot can change in a year. Your prescription may stay the same, but maintain good ocular requires an annual check up.

The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends children have their eyes examined at 6 months old, three years old, at the start of school, and every two years until age 18.

What about contact lens exams?

A comprehensive eye exam typically does not include a contact lens fitting. So you may need to schedule a separate contact lens exam.
