Comprehensive Eye Exams Q & A

Artisan Eye

What is a comprehensive eye exam?

A comprehensive eye exam is a thorough evaluation of your vision and eyes’ overall health. As opposed to a vision screening, which typically involves reading an eye chart, known as a visual acuity test, a comprehensive eye exam evaluates other components of healthy vision including eye teaming, focusing, and movements. In addition, the health of the front surface and inside of the eye is examined to ensure that you not only see well today but that your eyes are healthy to support life-long clear vision.  In addition, general health conditions that may impact the eye such as high blood pressure and diabetes may be detected through a comprehensive eye exam.

What can I expect during my comprehensive eye exam?

Your comprehensive eye exam will include tests to evaluate:

  • Visual acuity
  • Eye movement and tracking
  • Peripheral vision
  • Eye Alignment
  • Refraction (determination of glasses prescription)
  • Eye Pressure
  • The health of the front portion of your eyes including a dry eye assessment
  • Dilation
  • The health of the inside of your eyes  

How often should I get a comprehensive eye exam?

With the ability to detect eye and general health diseases at their earliest stages, many times before symptoms begin, Artisan Eye recommends you include a comprehensive eye exam as part of your annual wellness plan.
