The eye examination determines the prescription for your individual needs. A comprehensive eye examination in our office starts with a health history, eye health, vision requirements, general health and family genetics.
An eye co-ordination test is performed to make sure both eyes are working at far and close distances. Depth perception and color vision are also evaluated.
A refraction is performed to determine your new prescription. The computerized auto-refractor checks visual acuity. Tests are performed to determine astigmatism correction as well as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia. Several tests are used to evaluate the ability to focus from far to near and maintain near focus for tasks, such as reading and computer work.
The health of the front of the eye is then examined with a biomicroscope. Pupil responses are tested to determine neurological status. An eye pressure test is performed to help determine glaucoma risk.
A wide angle ophthalmascope is used to look into the back of the eye to search for signs of cataract, glaucoma, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other eye health and systemic diseases.
Dr. Schneider will explain the possible solutions to your visual needs.
Contact Lens Examination Those wearing contact lenses require several additional tests and follow-up visits to insure the best vision possible and to maintain optimum eye health. Your contact lens evaluation will include:
Analysis of your vision needs and lifestyle
The quantity of your tears
The curvature and health of your cornea
Current medical conditions, including allergies
Current medications especially those that may affect contact lens comfort
Discussions of the various contact lens types
Selection of lenses based upon your needs and conditions
Determination of disposability and wearing schedules
Your adaptation to your lenses, including positioning, movement, comfort, visual acuity, and ocular health.
The doctor will determine your need for soft, gas permeable, astigmatic, or bifocal contacts. Contact lenses can be ordered to change eye color for cosmetic reasons. The doctor and office staff will ensure that you have the proper fit and will provide you with the information necessary for successful wear and care.
Successful contact lens wear is a result of knowledge, experience, and having many options from which to choose. The doctor and his staff have over 30 years of contact lens fitting experience and will draw on that experience to provide you with successful contact lens wear.
Eye Health Management:
Eye Health Examinations for Infections and Injuries Dr. Schneider treats eye infections such as pink eye, flashes, floaters, eye pain, and sudden vision loss. He is licensed by the State of Ohio and the state of Kentucky to treat most eye diseases with oral medications and eye drops.
Diabetic Eye Health Management All diabetics should have a thorough eye examination each and every year. Most diabetics do not have a vision change large enough to cause symptoms or warrant a prescription change every year. It is necessary to determine the status of the health of the eye every year. The pupils will be dilated to insure a thorough assessment of the structures inside the eye particularly the retina. Much of the damage caused by diabetes to the back of the eye can be prevented or controlled with scheduled eye examinations. Dr. Schneider will co-ordinate care with your family physician, help you choose a retinal specialist if needed, and be available for any follow-up care when necessary.
Cataract Co-management As an optometrist, Dr. Schneider does not perform surgery, which means that you will receive an independent evaluation of your ocular lenses. Every eye examination involves an inspection of your ocular lenses for cataract. If your cataracts are affecting your daily activities, Dr. Schneider will discuss the various options available and assist you in choosing a surgeon.
