Whether you use contact lenses or glasses or have stellar 20/20 vision, yearly comprehensive eye exams are still important, and Art of Optiks offers top-notch Orono eye exams for the area. We can assess your eye health through a comprehensive eye exam. These exams go above and beyond simple vision screening, as we utilize advanced eye equipment to perform thorough evaluations.
Art of Optiks partners with many insurance companies, including VSP, Eyemed, BCBS, Medica, Health Partners, United Health Care, and more. We are open-access providers for most vision plans, including Spectera and Davis.
First, we’ll need to assess and understand your health history and background concerning your eyes. This history and background are essential for our eye doctors to perform a comprehensive eye exam, and providing us with accurate information ensures your exam is as informative and thorough as possible. The information will include a family history of eye problems, environmental conditions that affect your ocular health, medication allergies, and more.
Each Orno comprehensive eye exam will test the sharpness of your vision and how far away you can discern things. An Orono eye doctor from Art of Optiks will use the Snellen Eye Chart and advanced equipment to determine the strength of your eyes for the visual acuity test. The test results will show how clearly you can see using each eye and can help the Orono eye doctor from Art of Optiks determine if you need contacts or glasses to see better.
If the visual acuity test reveals that you may need some vision assistance, the refraction informs the Orono eye doctor from Art of Optiks of which prescription would be best for you. Using refraction and binocular vision, our eye doctors will ask you questions about your vision to determine the perfect lens for your sight, ensuring you can comfortably and accurately see. Your eyes will also be tested to see how well they work together, as one eye may be stronger than the other.
Our Orono eye exams also include a basic color vision evaluation to determine how well you can differentiate various colors and identify them. This test is used to rule out color blindness, hereditary color deficiencies, and other eye health issues related to color vision. We utilize the standard Ishihara color plate testing as well as other state-of-the-art color vision tests to ensure you can see all the colors of the rainbow.
Using our slit lamp, we can evaluate the front and back of your eye to look for ocular concerns, including cataracts, conjunctivitis, glaucoma, melanoma, and carcinomas. The slit lamp evaluation can be a highly educational experience for our patients, as we try to help each person understand the importance and complexity of eye health. Understanding potential eye conditions and the importance of early detection helps each patient practice responsible ocular health.
If you think you need glasses or contacts, we can provide a thorough contact lens evaluation to determine the ideal prescription and even include a lasik consultation if that option interests you. During the contact lens evaluation, our eye doctors will ask questions about your general health, lifestyle, and other considerations that may impact your decision to use contact lenses.
We offer a variety of contact lens options, including:
We also offer a one-on-one class to help you use your contact lenses if you are a new contact wearer.
We’re also proud to offer vision therapy to help people improve the efficiency and quality of their eyesight. Your eyes contain six different muscles, and like the other muscles in the body, you can strengthen and tone them to be more powerful. Our vision therapy can improve reading accuracy, sports agility, and more.
If you’re suffering from dry, itchy, red, and irritated eyes, we can help with that too. We offer a distinct approach to diagnosing and treating dry eyes and the symptoms, identifying the root of the problem and treating it.
