Eye Examinations

During your eye exam, we will examine your eyes inside and out, using the latest in eye care technology. Your eyes can reveal an incredible amount of information about your general health, in addition to your eye health.

Lifetime Eyecare Center's specially trained and highly skilled technical staff will perform many detailed tests using state-of-the-art technology including:

  • Fundus photography-images the internal structures of the eye such as the retina, optic nerve, retinal blood vessels, and macula.
  • Visual fields-tests your side vision for evidence of brain tumors, strokes and glaucoma.
  • Tonometry-measures your eye's fluid pressure, an important test for glaucoma.
  • Corneal topography-detects irregularities in the cornea that can affect vision. Is important in contact lens care, and is critical in pre and post op care for cataract surgery and LASIK.
  • EPIC computer assisted refraction-the next generation in vision testing technology, using wavefront analysis to determine your best prescription for clearer, high definition vision.
  • Optomap retina scan-captures almost the entire retina in one image, often without the need for dilation (additional fee applies).
Dr. Hutchins will examine the external and internal structures of your eyes to diagnose diseases such as:
  • Cataracts-a loss of clarity of the lens inside your eye.
  • Glaucoma-when the fluid pressure in the eye is damaging the eye's nerve tissue, causing gradual, permanent vision loss, without symptoms or warning signs.
  • Macular degeneration-atrophy of the central detail vision of the retina causing gradual vision loss.
  • Retina diseases and disorders.
  • Diabetic eye disease.
  • Cardiovascular disease-can be revealed by the appearance of the retinal vessels.
Dr. Hutchins will review all of the information and test results to make a recommendation concerning your eye health and visual needs. This may include glasses, contact lenses, LASIK, cataract surgery, vision therapy or prescribing medications for eye infections, inflammation, or glaucoma.
