At RANCHO DEL REY OPTOMETRY, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the family, ages 6 and older. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but can be diagnosed by an experienced licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrists are able to provide treatment options and in many cases manage or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.
During an eye exam, Dr. Kevin R. Solis and associates will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Solis and associates will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Rancho Del Rey Chula Vista optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Solis and associates will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Solis and associates may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or a computer prescription.
In addition to vision testing, patients with special needs may require assessment for eye functionality. Our optometrist may perform certain tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests may be required to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Solis and associates to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Rancho Del Rey Chula Vista optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Solis and associates evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Solis and associates review the results and discusses any treatments with you. Contact us at (619) 397-7955 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
Pricing for the OPTOS DAYTONA Wellness Retina WideField Imaging is an extra $20 total for both eyes when performed with a routine comprehensive eye exam or when performed with a Problem Focused Exam.
Disclaimer: A dilated Retina exam is the standard of care for the most thorough Retina evaluation as nearly 100% of the Retina can be viewed. The OPTOS DAYTONA Retina Wellness WideField Imaging can view up to 80% of the Retina and is considered an optimal proxy for a dilated Retina exam when a dilation is temporarily inconvenient, when an active Retina Detachment is not suspected, or when a quick side-effect free Retina screening is desired.
