What is my optical specialist looking for during a routine exam?

Your optometrist will use a variety of high-tech equipment, procedures, and tests to get a clearer picture of your sight and your overall ocular health. The first step is looking at the shape and structure of the outside and inner surface of the orbitals. The doctor will also ask you about your overall health and whether you have experienced any changes in sight or discomfort behind or around the orbitals. Family history is also very important to go over, tell your provider if you have a family history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, or cataracts. The rest of your exam will be structured around testing your visual acuity and prescribing any glasses or contact lenses if they are needed.

Are routine exams painful?

Sometimes the exam can be uncomfortable, but most patients would say it is not painful. The only uncomfortable area of the testing can occur if the clinician has the patient look into a bright light or the inner pressure is measured. Some may feel an uncomfortable feeling if they need a dilation performed. Dilation helps the clinician get the best view of inside the orbital so they can investigate the integrity of the inner structures.

What is the difference between nearsightedness and farsightedness?

When someone can see normally, the light being focused falls directly on the retina. If someone is nearsighted the light falls directly in front of the retina and causes a person to see close objects clear but far away objects are blurred. This happens when the physical length of the orbital is longer than the optical length. School aged children are usually diagnosed with nearsightedness due to the growth of the orbitals as they age. This also require the child to get frequent glasses or contact lenses changes. Farsightedness occurs the physical length is shorter than the optical length which causes the visual light to land behind the retina, it is presented at birth and sometimes children outgrow it. People can see objects far away, but close objects are blurry.
