Experience Computerized Eye Exams at Eye Express in the Bronx
Here at Eye Express, we incorporate computerized technology to assist the evaluation of eyeglass prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health. Computerized eye exam instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. A computer-based vision exam provides more features than a traditional slide projector displaying the letter chart. By using a computer monitor during a Bronx Eye Exam with a direct lighting source, it creates ideal contrast between the black
letter or object against a white background. Because contrast can be manipulated on a computer, your eye doctor can assess contrast sensitivity, a different measure to assess vision. Low contrast testing can reveal vision problems that aren’t easily detectable through high contrast testing. Another benefit of using computerized eye exams is that a computer chart offers very crisp letters, as well as the option to randomize and rearrange the line size and sequential order to avoid patient memorization while reciting letters.
At Eye Express in the Bronx, our vision examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort. Keeping your eyes healthy is important and an annual eye exam can help detect a number of eye diseases or conditions before they become more serious problems. Adults should have their eyes tested regularly to keep their eyeglass or contact lens prescription up to date, as well as monitor for early signs of eye disease. Pediatric eye exams are important as early as age two as vision plays a crucial role in ensuring normal vision development and consequently, academic achievement for all kids.
