Comprehensive Eye Examinations
A brief description of the comprehensive eye health examinations at Ranch Road Vision Source in Austin.
We provide complete eye care for children, teens and adults. As part of your examination, your visual acuity (the sharpness of your vision) will be assessed and a “refraction” will be performed to determine your eyeglass prescription. We will also assess your focusing ability for reading, how your eyes work together, and their ability to accurately focus at distance and near. Our comprehensive eye health examinations check your eyes inside and out for glaucoma damage, cataracts and all other eye diseases as well as high blood pressure, diabetes and other systemic diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and we pride ourselves on the accuracy of our eyewear prescriptions.
Our doctors will also evaluate the inner structures of your eyes, including the retina and optic nerve. In many cases we may recommend dilating eye drops, which cause the iris to open widely, giving the doctor a more optimal view of the internal structures of your eyes.The effects of the dilating drops usually begin to subside after a few hours; however, it is wise to bring good sunglasses to help you see in bright sunlight following a dilated eye exam. While your eyes are dilated, close work or reading may be difficult, and bright sunlight may be annoying.
Retina, Macula & Glaucoma Care
We use Optos Ultra Wide-field Retinal Imaging at our office. This allows us to digitally document the condition of your eye health. It also allows our doctors to better explain the condition of your eyes and since it is digital, the results are view-able immediately.
