Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Charlotte office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Bergin to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Charlotte optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Bergin evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Bergin reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at 980-319-1870 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
