A COMPLETE EYE EXAM IS NOT JUST A VISION TEST

peninsula eye doctor The health of your eyes and a lifetime of good vision take more than a rushed check for glasses. Your eye exam consists of various tests to evaluate the health of your eyes and determine the prescription lenses needed for the best possible sight. Our goal is to give you clear, comfortable and efficient vision. We assess the optical and functional status of your eyes. We also ask about your medical history and use several instruments to evaluate the health of your eyes. Dr. Guhl routinely tests for cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal problems. Diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes and others can be detected in the eye.

GOOD VISUAL SKILLS

Good visual skills are necessary for efficient information processing. When processing visual information is difficult, one may "try harder," straining without even knowing it because the effort is subconscious. If the visual system is inefficient, every task can seem difficult, using more energy than required. Here are some terms that can educate the patient about their own vision.

  • Tracking - the ability of the eyes to move smoothly across a printed page or while following a moving object.
  • Fixation - quickly and accurately locating and inspecting a series of stationary objects, such as words while reading.
  • Focus Change - looking quickly from far to near and back without a blur.
  • Depth Perception - judging relative distances of objects-how far or near they are.
  • Peripheral Vision - monitoring and interpreting what is happening in the surrounding field of vision.
  • Binocularity - using both eyes together as a team-smoothly, equally and accurately.
  • Maintaining Attention - keeping focused on a particular activity while interference, such as noise, is present.
  • Visualization - accurately picturing images in the "mind's eye," retaining and storing them for future recall.
  • Distance Acuity - clearly seeing, inspecting, identifying and understanding objects viewed at a distance.
  • Vision Perception - understanding what is seen.
