Our West Des Moines optometrist, Dr. Lisa Lansink, evaluates every aspect of your eyes and vision in the course of a comprehensive eye exam, beginning with a discussion of your medical history, known eye conditions, and questions about any recent changes or problems you may have noticed. we can then proceed to examine your:
Eye function - A variety of simple, painless tests let us see how well your eyes are tracking objects, focusing, perceiving colors and processing binocular vision (a must for normal depth perception).
Eye health - Retinal examinations under pupil dilation let our eye doctor look at the interior features of the eye, including the retina and optic nerves, while a device called a slit lamp reveals details at the front of the eye. Tonometry (pressure testing) allows us to measure the pressure of the vitreous fluid within the eye to see if excessive pressure puts you at risk for glaucoma.
Vision - By having you view an eye chart through a machine called a phoropter, our eye doctor can determine whether one or more refractive errors are affecting your visual acuity, adjusting the phoropter's lenses to find your exact corrective lens prescription.
All our patients, from infants to seniors, can benefit from a periodic comprehensive eye exam. If you or any of your family members are overdue for this critical preventative step, call 515.223.1000 for an appointment with our optometrist in West Des Moines!
