Routine Exams and Medical Emergency Visits

In a Routine Eye Exam, the Optometrists examine images taken with the Retinal Imaging System, which allows them to see almost 15% more than with a direct ophthalmoscope. There is no discomfort in a nonmydriatic Retinal Imaging Screening. Retinal Imaging is becoming the norm, although some Optometrists may choose to dilate the eyes. In addition to the Retinal screening, visual field testing, color testing, and refraction tests for eyeglasses are performed. A soft touch tonometry device will measure your intraocular pressure screening for Glaucoma. In addition, an anterior slit lamp microscope will screen the external eye for any disease. If any abnormality is found during this exam then you may be referred to an ophthalmologist for further care. Vision plans usually pay for these visits. Best Ophthalmologist Fort Myers.

An emergency ocular exam (by an Ophthalmologist or an Optometrist) centers on disease management. A vision plan does not pay for this type of visit. During that visit, specialized equipment may be used to determine the cause of a red eye or infection. Special dyes are instilled to view your cornea to rule out conditions of the anterior surface of your eyes. If you have flashes or floaters, a digital retinal image of the back of your eye may be taken, or your eye may be dilated.  A Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopy and possibly an OCT test may be ordered.  Best Ophthalmologist Fort Myers.
