Eye exams are the first step on the path to healthy vision. As part of a preventive visit, an eye specialist called an ophthalmologist will check your eyes and vision using objective and subjective methods. This eye exam serves not only as prevention, but also as an important basis for establishing a treatment strategy based on the patient’s individual needs. It can also reveal other diseases the patient might have, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Each patient can select whether they would like a basic screening or a comprehensive eye examination.
The eye and vision examination is painless and completely contact-free.
Objective vision examination methods
During the objective eye exam, an instrument is used to measure your vision requirements. A specialist checks and measures.
Basic eye exam
You can add supplementary instrumental measurements included in the comprehensive eye exam to your basic eye exam.
Comprehensive eye exam
The comprehensive eye exam also includes all measurements taken in the basic eye exam.
Subjective vision examination methods
The results of the objective eye exam serve as a fundamental starting point for the ophthalmologist and optometrist. During the subjective stage of the examination, the doctor checks the visual function of the eyes, focusing on the specific needs of each patient.
