Eye Exams

A comprehensive eye examination should occur at an early age to insure proper eye and vision development. Ongoing eye health examinations at regular intervals are equally important as many eye diseases and vision changes can occur without warning signs.

During a comprehensive eye exam, eye charts are used to measure the sharpness of your vision. The classic example of an eye chart is the Snellen eye chart, which generally shows 11 rows of capital letters. You will be asked to read the smallest line of text that you can make out. The standard for visual acuity is "20/20". Some patients are not able to achieve this level of vision due to certain eye conditions, while others can achieve even better levels of vision than this standard.

At Northern Waters Ophthalmology, we believe in a thorough eye exam, which means we also check for color vision deficiencies and test your eyes to see how they work together. To ensure your eyes are healthy, we recommend seeing an eye doctor for a comprehensive eye examination on a regular basis.
