Eye exam

At InSight Vision Center, we believe in a personalized and comprehensive approach to your eye health. Our eye doctors will conduct vision testing to determine whether you need a prescription for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses, but your eye test does not end there.

We will conduct an in-depth eye exam in Fresno to screen your eyes for eye diseases and eye conditions.

Annual Eye Exam

An annual eye exam detects several early signs of eye diseases that appear before the symptoms. As with other diseases, detection of these underlying conditions allows our eye doctors to take proactive measures to prevent loss of vision and address other serious underlying complications.

A comprehensive eye exam detects the early signs of these eye diseases:

InSight Vision Center recommends that you go through an annual eye exam regularly. This comprehensive eye exam will not only make a difference in your vision but also in your overall vision health, and quality of life.


When you visit our office in Fresno, CA for a comprehensive eye exam, here’s a rundown of what to expect:

1. History Taking

The team at InSight Vision Center will ask questions about your medical history including medications, family history, and the general state of your eyes. The eye doctor will review this information and then proceed to conduct the eye exam.

2. Performing Eye Tests and Procedures

  • The eye doctor attending you at InSight Vision Center will assess your internal eye health that includes optic disc, retina, and blood vessels. If you use glasses, the eye doctor will measure your glasses to verify the prescription of the lenses with the help of a Lensometer.
  • Using the slit-lamp method, the doctor will evaluate your external eye that includes lids and lashes.
  • Your color perception will also be determined.
  • The intraocular pressure (IOP) will be measured to screen for symptoms of glaucoma.
  • Your visual functions will be checked with and without eyeglasses/contact lenses using the visual acuity testing method.
  • Your eye alignment and eye muscles will be checked to ensure that there is proper coordination.
  • The optometrist will check the eye alignment and perform a refraction to determine the new glasses and contact lens prescriptions. Dilation drops may be administered at this time if the doctor feels it is warranted (for e.g. during a diabetic eye exam).
  • During the eye exam, your eye doctor may also request one of several diagnostic tests including fundus photography, corneal topography, OCT (Optical coherence tomography), pachymetry, visual field or color testing.
  • Visual field test may be performed to detect blind spots caused by eye diseases like glaucoma.
  • Your pupil function and its response to bright light may also be evaluated.

3. Discussing the Test Results and the Treatment Plan

At the end of your comprehensive eye exam, the eye doctor will discuss the results of the tests with you.

If there are abnormalities, the doctor will write you a prescription for corrective lenses. If your eye exam shows other abnormalities, the eye doctor will discuss further tests you may have to take to treat the underlying condition.

Eye Exam FAQs

Even if your vision is clear and you don’t need glasses or contacts, your eye exam can detect the early signs of eye diseases and even more severe diseases like diabetes and cancer. Seeing an eye doctor annually should be part of your annual overall health check-up.
How frequently you need an eye exam depends on your age, health, and risk of developing eye problems. Here is detailed information on how often you should have an eye exam.
An optometrist and ophthalmologist are eye doctors qualified to perform comprehensive eye exams. However, an optician is not a doctor and therefore is not qualified to perform eye exams.
List down all the eye problems you have (if any). Also, write down all the questions you may have for the doctor. Bring this list when you come to visit the eye doctor. Discuss your eye problems and your questions with the doctor. If you have eyeglasses or contact lenses, bring them along.
For a child’s vision to develop, there has to be good coordination between the eyes and the brain. If there are any functional or refractive eye problems in children, there can be a significant delay in this development. This can hamper the child’s physical coordination and even academic progress. That’s why an eye exam for children is so important.
An annual eye exam is recommended for elders because with age a lot of age-related eye disorders such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy crop up.
