An eye examination involves a series of tests to evaluate your Vision and check for eye ailments. Your eye doctor may use different types of instruments, shine bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses. Each test during an eye checkup evaluates a different aspect of your eye health.
Ophthalmologists use a wide variety of tests to examine your eyes. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to visualize the tiny structures inside of your eyes.
Here are some eye vision tests that you are likely to encounter during a comprehensive eye exam or checkup:
1. Visual Acuity Tests
2. Color Blindness Test
3. Cover Test
4. Ocular Motility (Eye Movements) Testing
6. Slit Lamp Exam
7. The Glaucoma Test
8. Pupil Dilation
9. Visual Field Test
10. Other Eye Tests
Most of the eye ailments are non-symptomatic and an eye examination helps detect any such problem at an early stage, if not treated might result in vision loss. Regular eye check-ups allow a doctor to correct the vision or help you adapt to vision changes and ensures prevention of further damage.
It depends on your age, eye conditions and family history.
If you’re younger than 40 and have no eye problem, your doctor might suggest you get routine tests every year.. If you’re 40 or older, you should get your eyes checked every 6 months to 1 year.
You need periodic check up to make sure that you do not have any serious, sometimes "silent" problems that can affect your vision, like:
• Age-related macular degeneration
