Eye Exam Image

At Vision Enhancement Center of Optometry, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able to provide treatment options to prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Duong Nguyen 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. Nguyen will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Riverside optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Nguyen 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. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Nguyen may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises (vision therapy).

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Riverside 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. Nguyen to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Nguyen will visually examine and use a higher-powered magnifying microscope to view the front and the back segments of the eye.  The doctor will inspect the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light.  To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils.  Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these tests, Dr. Nguyen reviews the results and discusses any treatments with you.

Dr. Nguyen is pleased to offer high-resolution digital retinal photography* as a great alternative to pupil dilation to screen for any eye conditions and to carefully monitor changes in eye diseases.
