Eye Exam ImageMedical Eye Exam v. Vision Eye Exam  

A Medical Eye examination is a comprehensive examination of the eye that reveals a complex abnormality of the eye and/or systemic conditions that may negatively compromise the visual system and require in-depth assessment, additional time, education, and monitoring

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Alice Cioara will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Cioara will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Charlottesville optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Cioara will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Cioara may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Charlottesville office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Cioara to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Charlottesville optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Cioara evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Cioara reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (434) 973-7996 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
