At Vision Plus of Tukwila, 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 vision 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, Dr. Guo will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your 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. Guo will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrist provides regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Guo 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. Guo may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our 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. Guo to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
Medical Eye Health Evaluation
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a thorough eye examination. Our advance technology of OCT, retinal camera and Visual Field Perimeters in the clinic help our doctor detect early change of Glaucoma, diabetic retinal change and macular degeneration etc. Dr. Guo will evaluate your eye health and communicate with your primary care doctor, eye surgeons or retinal specialists for any further necessary treatment.
