Performance Vision Care Exams are Different

Our mission at Performance Vision Care is to improve our patients' quality of life by protecting ocular health and enhancing vision. Our primary instrument in achieving this mission is our comprehensive eye exam. The Performance Vision Care ocular health and vision evaluation enables the optometrist to evaluate and enhance the functional status of your eyes and visual system, assess ocular health and related systemic health conditions, and to make specific relevant recommendations to improve your performance in everyday life. We believe it is our responsibility to utilize the latest technology, educate our patients, and help everyone see better so that they can perform better. 

Comprehensive Eye Exams

What Can You Expect?

The following describes each major step of the rigorous examination that allows us to achieve your visual and lifestyle goals.

  1. Patient History - Our objective is to obtain specific information about your eyes and visual status, systemic health issues, medications, family medical history, and the reason for your visit.
  2. Preliminary Testing - Our objective is to ascertain the patients’ visual function, ocular health, and related systemic health status. Major components include visual acuity testing at distance and near, depth perception, pupillary responses, extraocular muscle testing, and auto refraction/autokeratometry.
  3. Refraction - Our objective is to determine the patients’ prescription so that vision is maximized at distance and near with optimum comfort. We can diagnose and treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia (bifocals).
  4. External Ocular Health Assessment - Our objective is to thoroughly examine the front of the eye with a biomicroscope to determine the presence or absence of any abnormality. We can diagnose and treat common disorders in these structures like styes, infections, inflammation, foreign bodies, contact lens related complications, cataracts, dry eye syndrome, and ocular allergies.
  5. Internal Ocular Health Assessment - Our objective is to thoroughly examine the back of the eye using a biomicroscope to determine the presence or absence of abnormality. We can diagnose glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, diabetes, hypertension.
  6. Examination Summary - Our objective is to educate our patients and make them experts concerning their own visual systems. At the conclusion of the exam, we will discuss our findings, answer questions, and make specifically tailored recommendations to improve the patient’s quality of life.

Why are Eye Exams Important?

Periodic optometric examinations are an important part of preventative health care. Individuals are often unaware that problems exist because many eye and vision conditions create no obvious symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to maintaining full functional ability.

Contact Lens Fittings

Performance Vision Care Contact Lens Fittings

At Performance Vision Care, our goal is to prescribe the perfect contact lens for you to achieve optimal vision, provide maximal comfort, and maintain perfect ocular health. Most patients are good candidates now because of recent technological advances in the materials and designs of contact lenses. However, not every lens works for every patient, and wearing unsuitable lenses can cause unnecessary health problems and discomfort.

Performance Vision Care Fittings are Different

Our contact lens fittings are an extension of our comprehensive eye examinations. The information we gather concerning your prescription, ocular health, and your lifestyle is utilized to find the perfect contact lens for you. We match your lenses with your lifestyle, occupation, and activities to enhance performance and increase comfort.

Once we select a contact lens, the patient is given a one week trial to “test drive” the lenses in the real world to insure that they work as expected. Following this trial period, your optometrist will discuss the lens performance, answer questions, and recheck the ocular health and vision. Troubleshooting is completed if necessary, but usually the prescription is finalized and contacts can be ordered.

First Time Contact Lens Wearers

No problem! We can teach you everything you need to know to be a lifelong healthy and happy contact lens wearer. We provide interactive contact lens insertion and removal classes that emphasize safety and hygiene. We also explain how to properly clean and care for your contacts and all of the “Do’s and Don’ts.” Our goal is to introduce you to the world of contact lenses in a safe, healthy, and comfortable manner.

Laser Surgery Consultation

Although Performance Vision Care does not perform the surgery, we act as advocates for our patients during the pre operative and post operative periods. We can help determine if you are a good candidate, discuss various potential treatment options, educate about potential side effects, and answer all of your questions concerning the entire experience. Laser vision correction can be a very successful alternative for patients that that are tired of their glasses or are experiencing contact lens intolerance.

Laser vision correction (or refractive surgery) refers to laser surgical techniques that modify the shape of the cornea to improve vision. It can correct the most common vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During the operation, the refractive surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to match the prescription of your glasses or contacts. The two most common types of refractive surgery are laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis ( LASIK ) and photorefractive keratectomy
(PRK ).

If glasses or contacts interfere with your performance at work or during recreational activities, you may want to consider LASIK or PRK. As with all elective surgeries, you should make an informed decision by carefully weighing the benefits and potential risks. Performance Vision Care can be an excellent resource when determining your potential laser vision correction candidacy.
