Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often times, eye and vision problems do not have obvious signs or symptoms, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, Dr. Meharry is able provide treatment options, and in many cases, restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends annual comprehensive eye exams.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Candria Krywko 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. Dr. Krywko 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 Scottsdale optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Krywko 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, Dr. Krywko may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Scottsdale 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 Dr. Krywko 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 Scottsdale optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Krywko 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, Dr. Krywko reviews the results and discusses an treatments with you. Contact us at (480) 994-1872 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
