Eye & Vision Exams

Eye Exam Image

At Drs. Barnes and Carter, LLC, 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 to 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, Tanya Carter will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you 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. Tanya Carter 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 optometrists provide regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Tanya Carter 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, Tanya Carter may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

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

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Tanya Carter evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests,Tanya Carter reviews the results and discusses any treatments with you. Contact us at 973-744-6466 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "The best, most thorough eye exam I've ever had was at the spotless, new-looking offices of Drs. Barnes and Carter. Even though my vision insurance doesn't cover much here, I will be going back for contacts and glasses because it was simply the best experience I've had at the eye doctor. They even ship the contacts directly to you in a day or so, for the same price you'd pay at 1-800-Contacts or at a site online"
  • "Took my uncle & aunt for checkups was very impressed with the staff so I made an appointment for me"
