Eye & Vision Exams

To make sure that your eye health is at its best, you will need to have a vision exam regularly with an optometrist in Rancho Cordova, CA. Dr. Dora Szymanowicz specializes in providing eye exams to patients of all ages at her office. Whether they’re eyeglasses or contact lenses exams, Dr. Szymanowicz has the necessary experience to provide eye testing that evaluates the overall health of eye to help prevent serious eye problems from occurring.


Eye Testing

Our optometrist uses different tests to examine each patient’s eyes. These tests are used to evaluate the health of a person’s eyes as well as their vision.  A standard eye chart is a part of visual acuity tests that measure how sharp your vision is. A small handheld chart is used to test your near vision while the far chart on a wall is used for testing distance vision. Color blindness is tested early on in an exam to see how your color vision is. The cover test is done to check eye alignment and to look for a lazy eye. Ocular motility tests focus on how well a patient’s eye can follow a moving objection. Problems with eye movement can lead to eye strain.

Depth perception is tested with a stereopsis test. A pair of 3D glasses is given to a patient who then looks at a series of patterns to point out which pattern looks closer than the others.

Retinoscopy is done for an eyeglass prescription. During this procedure, the room is dimmed and the patient looks at an E and is asked if his or her vision is getting better or worse as the optometrist makes adjustments with a phoropter.

A glaucoma test may also be done with a “puff of air” test. This is relatively painless.

For those wanting contact lenses, an additional exam is done to determine the proper prescription and size of contact lenses needed.
