Color Blindness Test

A screening test that checks your color vision often is performed early in a comprehensive eye exam to rule out color blindness.
In addition to detecting hereditary color vision deficiencies, color blind tests also can alert your eye doctor to possible eye health problems that may affect your color vision.

Visual Acuity Tests

Among the first tests performed in a comprehensive eye exam are visual acuity tests that measure the sharpness of your vision.
These usually are performed using a projected eye chart to measure your distance visual acuity and a small, hand-held acuity chart to measure your near vision.

Refraction

This is the test that your eye doctor uses to determine your exact eyeglass prescription.
During a refraction, the doctor puts the instrument called a phoropter in front of your eyes and shows you a series of lens choices. He or she will then ask you which of the two lenses in each choice looks clearer.
Based on your answers, your eye doctor will continue to fine-tune the lens power until reaching a final eyeglass prescription.
The refraction determines your level of hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Modern versus invasive surgery

The invasive requires that the posterior capsule of the eye be left in to securely hold the new lens implant. In many of these patients, the capsule will inexplicably cloud over and obscure vision in the eye.
