Exceptional Eye Care for Your Entire Family
Comprehensive Eye Exams
At B-Town Eyecare, a comprehensive eye exam allows the doctor to evaluate your visual system as well as the overall health of your eye internally and externally. This exam will allow the doctor to determine your ocular health status, prescription, and address any visual concerns you may have. We recommend our patients to have their eyes checked annually for preventative measures.
The eye exam is a multi-step process that may include the following tests:
Visual Acuity – measures the sharpness of your vision
Color Vision Testing – to rule out color blindness
Cover Test – determination of whether or not both of your eyes are working together and confirm whether or not you have a “lazy eye”
Ocular Motility – how well your eyes follow a moving target
Stereopsis – depth perception test
Refraction – measuring the prescription that you need for your new glasses or contact lenses
Slit Lamp – using a microscope to examine the structures of your eyes in detail
Tonometry – Measuring the pressure inside your eyes to check for glaucoma. We use the iCare tonometer and the Goldmann Tonometer for this testing. We no longer use the “air puff” (i.e. NCT) testing method.
Dilation – Drops enlarge the pupil to allow the doctor to view the internal structures of the eyes; this allows to check for retinal pathology
Contact Lens Evaluations
Contact lenses are a medical device which require proper fit and care to maintain healthy eyes by an eye doctor. Dr. Bansal will help you determine the best design and modality of contact lenses specifically suited for your eyes, prescription, and lifestyle. There are many choices available today for patients who wear contact lenses. Contacts are more comfortable to wear than ever, and new advances continue to make contacts an option for people with various types of refractive error.
Contact lenses are medical devices that must be monitored and properly cared for to avoid complications. When contact lenses are worn as instructed, the risk to your eye health and vision are low. However, medications, environmental factors, other health concerns, non-compliance, over wear, or individual response may affect the success of your contact lens experience.
