Eye Exam Q & A
Is a comprehensive eye exam like a vision screening?
You might think that vision screenings are essentially the same as comprehensive eye exams — but they're very different things. In a comprehensive eye exam, the Inglewood Optometric Center team assesses your eye health and also determines your vision correction needs.
A vision screening is a basic test, usually performed in schools, that determines whether you might need vision correction. Vision screenings don't assess any aspect of eye health, and they can't accurately detect some vision problems.
The comprehensive approach gives you the vision correction you need, identifies eye diseases at their earliest stages, and helps you to be proactive about your wellness.
What can I expect during a comprehensive eye exam?
A comprehensive eye exam includes a large variety of tests, including:
- Reading an eye chart
- Refractive tests to determine your prescription
- Eye disease screenings (glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and others)
- Peripheral vision
- Central vision
- Eye teaming
- Eye movement
- Pupil light response
- Color vision
- Depth perception
Depending on the test results, the Inglewood Optometric Center team may perform additional tests or screenings to evaluate your eye health. If you want to wear contact lenses, they also measure your eyes to make sure the lenses fit properly.
The team performs comprehensive eye exams using the most advanced equipment, including the Topcon Maestro OCT and retinal camera, Haag-Streit Octopus 600 visual field equipment, Topcon Corneal Topographer, and the iCare tonometer.
In most cases, you don't need eye dilation for a comprehensive eye exam at Inglewood Optometric Center.
Do I need an eye exam every year if I have clear vision?
Because exams are about eye health as well as vision, you need annual comprehensive eye exams, even if you have perfect eyesight.
In many cases, eye exams can detect diabetes or high blood pressure before they cause any symptoms. The team can identify blood vessel changes inside your eyes and help you take steps to avoid disease and vision problems down the road.
