Eye and Vision Exams

Eye Exam ImageAt Eye Care For You, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. 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 are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore 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.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Alejandro Tirado 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. Tirado will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Jacksonville optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Tirado 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. Tirado may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Jacksonville office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Tirado to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Jacksonville optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Tirado evaluates 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. Tirado reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (904) 683-8444 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

  • "My first visit to Dr. Tirado was in 1999. He is very caring and a thorough doctor. I moved from Jacksonville spring 2008 and returned spring 2013. Needless to say, there was absolutely no hesitation to return to Dr. T for my yearly eye exams."

  • "All the swimming in my daily lifestyle made it difficult to wear soft contact lenses. My eyes would be dry and irritated at the end of the day. After discovering CRT lenses as a possible alternative, I scheduled an appointment. I was pleased by a welcoming, friendly, and enthusiastic atmosphere. On my second visit, I have issued my CRT lenses. After my first night with my lenses, my vision improved 20-30%. After 10 days my vision was 20/25 compared to my normal vision of 20/350. The contacts were initially uncomfortable and foreign, but I was determined to get through this phase. Almost a month later my vision is very close to perfect and my eyes give me no problems in the pool. It's also a cool feeling to be independent of contacts and glasses during the day. Overall I'm very happy with the amazing results and eager to note that each visit is an enjoyable experience."
