What to Expect
Many people skip having an annual eye exam because they don't know what to expect. Let us shed some light on the topic.
Dr. Raye, as well as the technicians and assistants who provide support, should make your eye exam experience easy and straightforward. During your eye exam, Dr. Raye might ask you questions about your general health and lifestyle to tailor the exam to your specific eye health needs. Then, he typically will perform an eye exam that measures:
Your overall vision
Your color vision and depth perception
Early indicators of potential problems, such as glaucoma, retinal issues, or cataracts
Your general eye health
Provide you with a written summary of your eye exam test results at the end of the exam.

What does an Optometrist do?
An optometrist is a state-licensed healthcare professional who examines, diagnoses, treats, and manages diseases and disorders of the visual system. Ask your Independent Doctor of Optometry* to explain the process throughout your experience, and answer any questions you might have.
The optometrist typically will provide:
Vision correction
Eye care
Identification of vision problems
Contact lens fitting
Management of eye diseases
Diagnosis of related systemic conditions
If you have other eye problems, the optometrist also might treat (or refer you for further treatment for) eye infections, red eyes, or dry eyes.
