Our Rhodes Ranch eye testing is recommended for all of our valued patients once per year. And while the vital components of our vision test remain the same and continue to be highly efficient, we’re also pleased to give you the benefits of the latest technological advancements in the optical field. One such example is the Reichert digital vision chart. It is the goal of our eye doctor, Glenn Roter, OD, to provide you with the most accurate eye exam available.
You might wonder why advanced instrumentation is necessary just for a simple eye exam. Well, small discrepancies in how your vision is evaluated can yield big differences in the level of sharpness and clarity with which you will be able to see when you wear your new eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our Rhodes Ranch eye testing is based on the premise that seeing okay is not sufficient. We want you to see the best that you’re capable of. And that’s one way that we make that a reality: by utilizing modern equipment.
There are various methods that will comprise our Rhodes Ranch eye testing, including a visual acuity test, a vision field test, and a refraction test, all combine to allow Dr. Roter to diagnose if you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or any combination of those. Your peripheral (side-to-side) eyesight will also be gauged. If you currently wear eyeglasses or contacts, be sure to bring them with you so that you can be evaluated both with and without. And with the Reichert digital vision chart, you can be 100% confident that your corrective lenses will be ideal for you.
In addition to your vision, our Rhodes Ranch eye testing will also screen you for the most common eye diseases, because the health of your eyes is also of paramount importance to us. Diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts can affect anyone at any age, regardless of outside circumstances. Others, like diabetic retinopathy are applicable to those with type one or type two diabetes. And macular degeneration is a concern once you reach age 40. Bear in mind that these diseases don’t have any obvious symptoms until they reach an advanced stage, so it is vital to be tested yearly.
