WHAT TO EXPECT

As with all medicine, early diagnosis and treatment can help people with their overall health. Just as with a physical, it makes sense to visit Dr. Wallace for a routine eye exam.

A series of tests will be performed to assess acuity, refraction and potential eye disease.

Dr. Wallace will begin by asking a series of questions about your medical and eye health history, including any noticeable eye problems. Next he  will evaluate your visual acuity by determining the smallest letters you can read on a standardized eye chart.

Dr. Wallace will also test for refractive errors. A refractive error means that the shape of your eye doesn't focus the light properly, so that the image you see is blurred. Although refractive errors are called eye disorders, they are not diseases.

There are four types of refractive error:


Myopia (nearsightedness): Close objects look clear, but distant objects appear blurred.


Hyperopia (farsightedness): Where distant objects will look clear but close objects are blurry


Astigmatism: Vision is blurred for both near and far objects.s.


Presbyopia: The eyes gradually lose the ability to change focus from distance to near.

Many people will have one or more of these refractive errors.

To correct a refractive error, Dr. Wallace may recommend glasses or contact lenses.
Your vision insurance may cover all or a portion of the cost for this service.

In addition, Dr Wallace will test:
Eyelid health and function, Coordination of eye muscles, Pupil response to light,Side, or peripheral vision, Intraocular pressure (the pressure inside the eye Anterior segment of the eye), the area in front of the lens, including the cornea and iris, the interior and back of the eye, including the retina.

After the examination Dr.Wallace will discuss the results with you. If there is any eye disease, treatments with medication, including eye drops, may be recommended. Your medical insurance may cover all or a portion of the charges for this service

In some cases, certain eye diseases require laser surgery or other surgical procedures. Some of the treatments are taken care of by your regular Eye M.D. Or, you may be referred to a subspecialist, such as a cornea or retina specialist.
