Eye Exams in Birmingham, AL

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.

The Eye Doctors at VisionFirst Eye Center’s provide the following eye exams and treatments:

  • Diabetic Eye Exams
  • Plaquenil Eye Exams
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Dry Eye

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

You will have a chance to ask any questions about your eye and vision health.
