A Unique Journey for You

Your eyes are one of the most complex organs in your body, with the incredible ability to focus on up to 50 objects in one second and differentiate between 10 million colors. They’re one of the most fundamental tools for perceiving the world around us and, as such, deserve the best in cutting-edge optical medical technologies. 

At Art of Optiks, every annual eye exam is an opportunity to protect your vision today and in the future. Our comprehensive eye examinations go beyond what you may have undergone in the past, with state-of-the-art equipment designed to provide us with a complete picture of your eye health.

Patient History + Background

The first step in your comprehensive eye examination at Art of Optiks is taking your health history. We’ll ask about any existing conditions, family history regarding eye health, medication allergies, and environmental factors that could impact your ocular well-being.

Visual Acuity

Your St. Louis Park eye doctor will use a Snellen Eye Chart to test how far you can see at various distances. You will sit a certain distance from the chart and read off symbols or letters that decrease in size as you move down. We also have accommodations for children, non-verbal, and bilingual patients.

Refraction + Binocular Vision

The refraction and binocular vision assessment lets your eye doctor know which prescription lenses you need to correct your vision. Beyond the basic “Which looks better? 1 or 2?” test, our eye doctors also work to find the correct balance between clear vision and comfortable wearability.

Basic Color Vision Evaluation

Our eye doctors at Art of Optiks will conduct a basic color vision screening test to ensure you’re not living with hereditary color vision deficiencies, color blindness, or any other concern that might compromise your color vision in the future.

Eye Health

Art of Optiks eye exams consist of comprehensive assessments of the retina, cornea, and optic nerve to identify any abnormalities that might affect your vision if left unchecked. They’ll also look for the early warning signs of systemic conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes, which can present in the eye before they’re detectable anywhere else. 

Slit Lamp Evaluation

One of the core components of your comprehensive eye examination is a slit lamp evaluation, during which we assess the front and back of your eyes using a special instrument called a slit lamp. It is equipped with a high-intensity light and DSLR MVC camera that allows eye doctors to closely examine the inside and outside of your eye.  

Our eye doctors will show you the captured images during the evaluation and educate you on any areas of concern, including early signs of:

  • Cataracts
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Glaucoma
  • Melanoma
  • Carcinoma
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid abnormalities
  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Lupus

At Art of Optiks, we can detect potential health issues early, then take steps to preserve your vision before it’s too late.

Contact Lens Evaluations

We happily accommodate contact lens evaluations during your comprehensive eye exam at Art of Optiks. Our eye doctors will ask questions about your lifestyle and educate you on health considerations to help you find the right kind of contact lens for your specific concerns. A few of the lenses we offer through our practice include: 

  • Daily disposables
  • Monthly disposables
  • Toric lenses for astigmatism
  • Multifocals
  • Monovision
  • Toric Multifocals
  • Scleral Lenses

If this is your first time wearing contact lenses, we offer a one-on-one class with our friendly technicians. Our technicians will train you on proper insertion, removal, and general best practices for caring for your lenses, so you’ll walk out of our Edina or Wayzata location prepared for your new vision solution.
