A VERY THOROUGH EYE EXAMINATION By Dr. James Ivanoski, Optometrist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin
First, a very comprehensive health history is taken. This includes current vision concerns, eye pain or discomfort problems, current medical conditions, past eye injuries or problems, current medications, past eye or general surgeries, allergies, and a social history. This history helps us to customize our care to your specific needs.
The vision is carefully evaluated during the examination. Vision is checked for distance or reading problems. Color vision is evaluated. Peripheral vision is checked. A careful evaluation for need of glasses or contact lenses is performed (refraction).
Eye alignment is evaluated. We check to make sure the eyes are moving properly. The pupils are checked for abnormalities. These tests are done to make sure the nerves that control the eye muscles are working properly.
A very thorough eye health examination is performed. The eye is evaluated from the outside to the inside. The intraocular pressure is checked to evaluate for glaucoma. Eyelid mechanical function, tears and tear drainage, and the ocular surface are checked with a slit lamp biomicroscope. The lens is evaluated for cataracts. The optic nerve and retina are checked for problems like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or macular degeneration.
Finally, we discuss our findings and any treatment if necessary. Most people would agree that vision is the sense we value the most. Our expertly trained technicians and eye doctors look forward to helping to protect your sight.
