Our Austin optometrist team work patiently with you to ensure that your prescription is accurate, precise and best suits your vision requirements. Both distance and near vision (reading/ computers) requirements are evaluated. Binocular vision is carefully assessed to check eye coordination, muscle control and focusing ability. The eye health evaluation includes determination of the intraocular pressure and the peripheral vision testing, two very important risk factors in glaucoma. Dilation of the pupils enables the doctors to comprehensively view the interior structures of the eyes to detect disorders of the the retina which include diabetes, hypertension as well as other systemic diseases. Endothelial corneal scans to determine the health of the cornea especially with long term contact lens usage and pre LASIK. Visual field testing aids in detecting early signs of ocular and neurological diseases.
