A cataract evaluation at Schein Ernst Mishra Eye involves several pain-free tests to determine your eye health. These cataract tests are very important to identify the presence, severity and position of any cataracts that may be affecting your vision. Plan to spend 3 hours at our office for this evaluation. We’ve streamlined multiple visits for a cataract evaluation into one comprehensive exam where you will be tested, educated and have the opportunity to schedule your surgery. We’ll provide snacks for you to have during this appointment or you are welcome to bring your own as well.
- Visual acuity test to assess your distance and near vision
- Refractive error measurement to determine your glasses prescription
- Assessment of your lenses to determine the presence any cataracts
- Evaluation of your retinal health (back of the eye) with dilation
- Eye pressure measurement to determine the presence of glaucoma
- Review of your overall health
- Topographer: used to evaluate your cornea for premium correction options
- Zeiss OCT: used to scan your retina
- IOL Master 700: to determine the power of yours lens implant
Depending on the outcome of these initial tests, your Harrisburg cataract doctor may request other testing if other eye issues are suspected.
Dilation is required to fully assess your cataract and eye health. You may want to have a friend or family member drive you home after your cataract evaluation.
