Eye Exam in Napa Napa Pediatric Eye Exam

A comprehensive eye exam begins with a thorough ocular health history and medical history – which includes personal and family history. Certain ocular conditions have a genetic tendency and knowing family history alerts us of any potential risks to your vision and your general health.

We want to know if you are experiencing any vision problems and if you have vision goals and needs that you want to achieve. This helps us tailor the exam for you.

We provide eye exams using the latest technology, and we also listen to your needs and explain your options. Dr Sultan likes to place your options on the shmorgazboard table to see what appeals to your personal needs / your lifestyle. Routine eye exams include:

Physical eye health exam: The external and internal parts of the eyes are examined using special instruments like a slit lamp biomicroscope, binocular indirect ophthalmoscope and special focusing lenses. Your pupils may be dilated with eye drops for some of these tests or we might take retinal pictures of the back of your eyes which is faster and easier and images can be compared from year to year to look for any changes that can be a sign of impending potential problems. (See retinal photography section (next page).

Refraction: This test determines your eyeglass or contact lens prescription. We measure and adapt the lens formula that will work best for you and your needs. We use a computerized autorefractor, phoroptor and the doctor needs to hear how you use your eyes at work and leisure. Dr Sultan and his team will use this information and customize your prescription – for the way you use your eyes!

Binocular vision testing: We test your eye teaming to be sure your vision is comfortable and your eyes work well together. We analyze eye muscles and depth perception. The doctor may need to correct binocularity problems with prescription glasses, prism in your Rx or vision therapy.

Tonometry: measures the fluid pressure inside the eye which is a risk factor for glaucoma. This test may include:

  • I care - a new advanced test that is very gentle and replaces the puff of air test ( so many disliked)
  • Goldmann tonometry which is the gold standard that all measurements are compared to

Visual field test: The doctors does a screening of your peripheral vision with a computerized autoperimeter. This helps diagnose or rule out visual neurological disorders or injuries from soccer, football or mild concussions you never thought about.

Retinal photography: A special camera photographs the back of your eye. This test provide a baseline record of the retina, blood vessels and optic nerve. It also documents diseases and abnormalities and monitors them over time.

Macular Pigment Optical Density : measures risk for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is a leading cause of blindness. This measures the density of pigment cells in the macula and is recommended for all patients over 30 years of age. With more of our patients spending time in front of electronic devices ( computers, I phones and even sunlight), the specific portion of blue light can cause slow damage to the retinal receptors that can cause slow, irreversible retinal damage that can impair your vision./p>

Patients with a low macular pigment score may take nutritional supplements for protection against macular degeneration and blue light damage.
