Dr. Richardson will explain the exam as he works so you'll   understand what each procedure is for.

The Basic Visual Exam checks the health of your eyes on the inside and out.  When Dr. Richardson looks inside your eyes, he is also checking your blood vessels, retina, and optic nerve. 

During the refraction, you will help the doctor by choosing between different lenses.  This is the classic, "One? or Two?" part of the exam.  The lenses help the doctor measure several different curves on your eyes which he will use to calculate your eyeglass prescription..

He will also measure your depth perception, focusing ability, and any need for additional power when reading.
