Why is my personal background important?
Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger will review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements to better tailor the examination to your needs.
What can I expect from the overall exam?
In addition to determining your prescription, or how well you see up close and far away, your eye examination will also check to make sure your eyes are healthy. Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger may test your color vision and depth perception, as well as check for any early indicators of possible eye disorders, such as cataracts, retinal problems and glaucoma. Ultimately, the elements of your exam will be determined by the doctor.
Why does the doctor ask me, "Which is better, one or two?"
Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger will ask these questions during the portion of the examination when your prescription is established. Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which is clearer for you. As the differences become less noticeable, Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger will be closer to finalizing your prescription. For this reason, if you’re having a hard time choosing between the options, it’s a good thing!
What is the test with the puff of air for?
The puff of air measures the fluid pressure in your eyes. This is an important test, as high pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma.
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
High blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes and can lead to future vision problems.
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This test is used to determine how your pupils and eye muscles react, and is important in assessing neurological function.
Is it necessary for doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
Pupil dilation is the standard of care for new patients and at regular intervals for existing patients. Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger will make the determination of necessity during your exam and consult you on the process. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully exam the retina. Dilation can also help detect diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and macular degeneration. In some cases, pupil dilation can be replaced by choosing to have OPTOS™ retinal imaging performed instead. Dr. Scott and Staci Ecenbarger will explain these choices clearly so you get the best exam experience possible.
