Routine eye exams at our practices are an essential part of maintaining healthy vision and identifying eye problems. Yearly eye exams have been recommended as a standard for good ocular health.
A comprehensive, dilated eye exam, is performed in order to look for common vision problems and eye diseases, many of which have no early warning. In a dilated eye exam, the pupils widen, giving your eye doctor a clearer view of the retina and optic nerve.
One of our ophthalmic technicians will take a careful medical history and take measurements of your eyes to determine their focusing power and whether any correction is needed. These results are shared with the doctor.
One of our ophthalmologists or optometrists will review your eye measurements with you, explaining in detail what each measurement means. If you wear contact lenses, we will also assess them at this time. The doctor will also look into your eyes to assess any abnormalities and diseases including corneal disorders, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, etc.
You will have a chance to ask any questions about your eye and vision health.View Video
“Dr. Doss is very friendly and professional as well as the rest of the staff that I have dealt with…all the techs are awesome.. and after there was a problem with my insurance providers I can’t say enough good things about Judy (front desk) and Lauren ( optician )…they worked so hard to get that mess straightened out for me..I have no reason to go anywhere other than vision first in Trussville.”
