What Tests Are Involved?
Our doctors perform a few basic evaluations to check the health and function of your eyes. These include:
External & Internal Examination
At Calgary Family Eye Doctors, we use the ICare Tonometer. This means no puff of air in your eye! This helps to keep your eye exam as comfortable as possible.
Visual acuity testing assesses how well you see.
The most common test used is a standard letter chart, called a Snellen chart, where we will get you to read lines of letters at a certain distance. We may also combine the letter chart with a phoropter to determine what prescription lens is required to correct your vision.
