Eye Exam Image

At Valley Eyecare & Eyewear Gallery, 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 provide treatment options and in many cases restore or 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. Somer Lyons will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your 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. Lyons 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 optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Lyons 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. Lyons may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

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

Eye Health

Evaluating your vision allows your eyes to achieve their best possible sight.  Evaluating the health of your eyes helps us keep you seeing well for the future.  As part of a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Lyons examines the overall health of the eye. Dr. Lyons evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using biomicroscopy. The internal structures of the eye are also examined thoroughly at each exam. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these tests and viewing all of the structures of the eyes, Dr. Lyons reviews the results and discusses an treatments with you.
