Routine Exams

Eye Exams Hazle Township and Stroudsburg

At Hazleton Eye Specialists, all routine vision care exams provide a comprehensive analysis of a patient's visual status. Typically, a thorough medical history is taken first. Patients are instructed to bring a list of current medications and dosages including vitamins over the counter medications, along with their eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. Patients will then have visual acuity (how well they see), pupil function, extraocular muscles and peripheral vision tested. A refraction, or test for eyeglasses prescription change, will be performed to determine if a new eyeglass prescription is needed. The doctor will then do a slit lamp exam which evaluates the health of the front of the eye. The intra ocular pressure (Glaucoma test) will be measured and then the patient's pupils will be dilated. New technology, called the Optos Retinal map is offered at this time to patients. This is a wide-field, non-dilated digital laser scan of the retina which allows a comprehensive evaluation of the retina (inside of the eye). This test is not covered by insurance but most patients elect to have it performed since it eliminates the need for dilation in most cases.
