Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, Doctor Anker or Doctor Pan will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Our Bellingham optometrists provide regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Our Doctors will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Bellingham office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform 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 our Doctors 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 Bellingham optometrists examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Doctor Anker and Doctor Pan evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, our Doctors review the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you.
