Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam, Dr. Rebecca Lee 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. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Lee will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Pleasanton optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Lee will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Lee may prescribe corrective glasses or contacts lenses.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Pleasanton office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs 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 Dr. Lee 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 Pleasanton optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Lee evaluates 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. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils to ensure that the doctor is able to evaluate the retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels comprehensively. After completing these short tests, Dr. Lee reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (925) 462-1100 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
