At Tennessee Eye Care, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy eyesight, which is why we offer comprehensive eye exams for our East Tennessee patients. Our goal is to provide informative and educational content to help you understand the various tests we perform to evaluate the overall health of your eyes and determine your visual acuity.

Key Components of Our Eye Exams

  1. Overall eye health examination: Using a special magnifying lens, we examine the front and back of your eyes to check for signs of eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

  2. Visual acuity measurement: We assess your ability to see at various distances by having you read letters or numbers on a chart. This test helps us determine your level of visual acuity and whether you need corrective lenses.

  3. Eye muscle control and focus assessment: By having you follow a small light or the doctor’s finger as it moves in different directions, we can evaluate how well your eyes move together and focus.

  4. Prescription determination: To find the ideal prescription for glasses or contact lenses, you’ll look through a phoropter, a device containing various lenses. As you view an eye chart, the doctor will switch the lenses to determine the best combination for your vision.

  5. Additional tests: Depending on your individual needs, we may perform a color vision test to assess your ability to distinguish between different colors, as well as a tonometry test to measure the pressure inside your eyes and check for glaucoma.
