Eye Exams Q & A

What happens during an eye exam?

Hunter Vision has one of the most extensive diagnostic suites in the country. When you come in for an eye exam, you get a wide range of tests to pinpoint the best way to correct your vision and eye health problems. These include:

  • Autorefraction - reads your glasses prescription automatically
  • Lensmeter - verifies current prescription
  • Phoropter - adjustable lenses to measure your prescription with your input
  • Pentacam® - highly detailed corneal measurements
  • Fundus camera - eye imaging without dilation
  • Retinal OCT - 3D retina scan 
  • Lenstar - measures all parts of your eye using light rays
  • Anterior chamber OCT - laser scanner to find perfect lens size

Hunter Vision evaluates your prescription with hyper precision through these tests, determines the best lenses for perfect custom eyeglasses or contact lenses fit, and screens for several eye health issues like diabetic eye disease and dry eyes. 

The suite of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment at Hunter Vision provides the very best in expert evaluation. At Hunter Vision, eye exams give a whole new meaning to “comprehensive,” as they evaluate every aspect of your vision and eye health. 

How often should I have comprehensive eye exams?

Hunter Vision recommends comprehensive eye exams once a year for most children and adults. However, if you have eye health problems or if you’re in a high-risk group for eye problems, you may need twice-yearly visits instead. The eye care experts recommend an exam schedule for your situation.

How do I prepare for comprehensive eye exams?

In most cases, you don’t need any special preparation. However, if you already wear contact lenses or eyeglasses, bring them along to your visit. 

If you’re taking any current medications, bring a list of those drugs to your appointment. It’s important to tell your providers about even over-the-counter medicines like artificial tears because it helps them assess your health issues.

You can drive home after your comprehensive eye exam with no worries about light sensitivity or blurriness because the cutting-edge equipment evaluates your eyes without dilation.
