Comprehensive Eye Exam

Caring for your eyes is more than just having someone “check your eyes.” Dr. Teles believes that with state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to more thoroughly examine you and your family’s eyes, mixed with old-fashioned personalized communication and care, is the key to long-term eye care.

Many vision and eye problems can be prevented with early detection. At Looking Glass Optical Dr. Teles takes the time to explain the eye health and eye care solutions available. All our patients appreciate this way of communication because of the personalized attention they receive.

Complete and Comprehensive Exams

A complete and comprehensive examination is a two-part process:

Eye Exam:

Assuring good eye health with periodic eye exams.

As part of each eye health exam, Dr. Teles will examine your eyes for cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases, dry eye syndromeallergic eye disease and other eye disorders. Computerized photos of detected eye conditions allow Dr. Teles to share his findings with a patient in real time. This technology provides clear explanations and a cutting edge learning experience.

Vision Analysis:

Evaluation of clarity and comfort in the way you see.

The vision examination is comprehensive. Good vision is more than 20/20 clear distance eyesight. Computer vision syndrome is a good example. So many computer users come into the office with “perfect 20/20″ vision but complain of headaches, code or text running together, eye fatigue, general fatigue, neck ache, eyes watering, etc. One can have “perfect 20/20″ but still have focus fatigue and eye coordination problems as part of CVS, Computer Vision Syndrome.

Another common example is the child with dyslexia or reading problems. They also frequently present with 20/20 but have vision perception issues, eye coordination or tracking problems. (See the section on Vision Therapy.)

Enjoying clear comfortable near vision while reading, and computing is equally important to knowing that one’s eyes are free of disease. That is why tests for dynamic focusing and eye coordination skills are administered as a part of every comprehensive exam.

Caring and testing for details of entire visual function allows for detection and recommendations that can have positive, far-reaching effects on sports, reading comprehension, efficiency at one’s job. Additionally, if parents are nearsighted, special tests are now available that allow early detection and treatment to prevent and slow up nearsightedness in young children.
