Eye Exams in Palm Springs, California

Come see us in Palm Springs, California, for full visual eye exams using computerized equipment. A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision.

These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside your eyes. Some of the routine tests you will receive include:
 

Retinoscopy

This test helps us get a good approximation of your eyeglass prescription. The doctor will shine a light from a hand-held instrument into your eyes. The way the light reflects from your eye during the procedure is a good indication of what your prescription should be.

Refraction

 
 
 
 
 
This test determines the exact eyeglass prescription. During this procedure the doctor will put the phoropter (wheels of lenses) in front of your eyes and show a series of lens choices. Based on your responses, we determine your level of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism, as well as the lenses required to correct these problems.

Pupil Dilation

This test includes the use of dilating drops, which are medicated eye drops used to enlarge the pupil so that we can get a better view of the structures in the back of the eye.
