What is an eye examination without a vision test? Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Your visit to our south Charlotte eye care office will include a visual acuity test and eyeglass refraction as part of a comprehensive eye exam. As many would recognize, the results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Gifford or one of his associates may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
In addition to evaluating vision, a comprehensive eye examination will include a thorough evaluation of the various structures of the eye and visual system. Our doctors evaluate for such external conditions as dry eye syndrome, conjunctivitis, and eyelid disease. Internal examination of the eyes with dilation of the pupils and digital retinal imaging is also performed. Additional diagnostic testing will also be employed when necessary.
