What can I expect during an eye exam?

Comprehensive eye exams include three primary components:

Consultations

In a consultation, Dr. Amin or Dr. Hardy will discuss any concerns you have, your family history, and any current or past vision conditions.

Eye Function Testing

This will include testing your depth perception, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral and color vision, responsiveness to light, and making sure your eyes can focus and work together properly

Eye Health Exam

In this exam, your doctor will inspect the outer and inner structures of your eyes as well check for pressure in your eyes. Pressure can point to the possibility of glaucoma.

All of these aspects of your comprehensive eye exam can help Dr. Amin or Dr. Hardy determine the overall health of your eyes and make the best recommendations for treatments if needed.

What are corrective lenses?

Corrective lenses, such as contacts or glasses, help correct vision problems. The standard for normal distance and reading vision is 20/20. If your vision is higher than this fraction, your doctor will prescribe corrective lenses to try to get your eyes back to this range.

Depending on your vision needs, your doctor might recommend either contacts or glasses. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, prescription glasses might be a more comfortable solution. Advanced Vision & Achievement Center offers a wide selection of prescription glasses, including sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV light.

Advanced Vision & Achievement Center also offers a wide range of corrective and cosmetic contact lenses.

Are there different kinds of contact lenses?

There are two general types of contact lenses: soft or rigid gas permeable (RGP). Soft contact lenses enable oxygen to pass through to your cornea and are often easier to get used to than RGP options.

RGP contact lenses are typically more durable than soft contacts, and they often provide crisper vision. This type of contact lens can take more time to get used to than soft contact lenses, but RGP lenses can be more resistant to deposit buildup and less likely to tear.

Depending on the type of contact lenses you use, you will need to change them daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. You can also get specialty contact lenses, including bifocals and lenses that can help you see colors and gauge depth perception better. Dr. Amin and Dr. Hardy also offer cosmetic contact lenses that can transform your eye color or camouflage any eye irregularities you may have.
