Your Eyes. Your Health.

We are dedicated to delivering exceptional eye care services for you and your family

Routine eye examinations are crucial for everyone, regardless of existing eye issues or potential risks.

Visual Function and Eye Health

Our comprehensive examination covers various aspects, including depth perception, color vision, peripheral vision, and pupil response to light. Additionally, we assess eye focusing, teaming, and movement abilities. In tandem, we conduct a precise examination of fluid pressure within your eyes to identify any indications of glaucoma.

Internal Examination

This comprehensive assessment involves the evaluation of the retina and optic nerve, conducted while your eyes are dilated.

Visual Acuity

Our doctors assess your vision using different lenses to determine whether glasses or contact lenses can enhance your visual acuity.

Tailored to your individual needs, the eye doctor may conduct one or more of the following tests:

A refraction exam is a fundamental component of a comprehensive eye and vision assessment. Refraction is the process through which you perceive objects in your surroundings. Any imperfection in the refraction of your eye can result in blurry vision. The two primary vision issues arising from refractive challenges are nearsightedness and farsightedness. During this straightforward test, the doctor may use a light to assess how it bends through your eyes, or a computerized test may also be employed to determine your refractive status.

The tonometry test, commonly known as an eye pressure test, is designed to measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) in your eyes. Given that elevated pressure levels may indicate glaucoma, this test is integral to a comprehensive eye examination. The procedure involves the application of eye drops to numb the eye, followed by the use of a small device by the doctor to gently touch the eye and assess pressure levels.

Visual Acuity is the ability to see clear, sharp images from various distances. To test this skill, the doctor will instruct you to look at an eye chart in various types of bright lighting. The smallest letters or numbers that you can clearly see determines your level of visual acuity.

Your visual field refers to the area you perceive while focusing on a specific object. For instance, when you look at a car, your eyes are centered on it, yet you’re also aware of surrounding elements like flowers on the ground or rain on the windshield. A visual field test assesses your ability to perceive and recognize objects within this direct area. This examination is crucial in identifying potential visual field impairments caused by specific eye conditions or neurological disorders. Please note that visual field testing is not part of standard comprehensive eye exams.

Developed by Optos, a UK-based retinal imaging company, the OPTOS Retinal Exam is a cutting-edge offering now available at BCC Optometry. This advanced technology provides an expansive and detailed image of the retina, surpassing the capabilities of traditional eye scans. The wide imaging not only offers significantly more detail but also enables the doctor to identify and diagnose retinal problems that may impact your vision. Please note that OPTOS Retinal exams are not apart of standard comprehensive eye exams.

The color evaluation assesses one’s ability to differentiate between colors, typically conducted using Ishihara color plates. These plates consist of round circles with colored dots forming a number. During the examination, the patient studies the image, presented either on paper or a computer screen, and identifies whether they can clearly perceive the number. This test holds significance as challenges in distinguishing between red and green often indicate signs of color blindness.
