Meet our Team of Maple Grove Eye Doctors at Pearle Vision
Doctors on duty 7 days a week!
A Typical Exam at our location Many people skip having an annual eye exam because they don’t know what to expect. Let us shed some light on the topic. We are always a step ahead of those other docs. With the Retinal Digital Eye Exam in our practice, we take your comprehensive eye exam to a higher level. Our docs will have the ability to proactively detect very early signs of disease and confirm the health of our patient’s eyes. A higher standard of care. That’s us. During your eye exam, the optometrist might ask you questions about your general health and lifestyle to tailor the exam to your specific eye health needs. Then, he or she typically will perform an eye exam that measures: Your overall vision with your current contact lenses and/or glasses Check of your pupil reaction to detect abnormalities that could indicate various neurological conditions Check extraocular motility to ensure that all ocular muscles are functioning correctly Check peripheral vision for abnormalities Your color vision and depth perception based on patient’s needs Early indicators of potential problems, such as glaucoma, retinal issues, or cataracts Your general eye health – check the front of the eye for dry eye, allergic conjunctivitis and cataract; check the back of the eye by looking at the optic nerve for possible glaucoma, examine the macula for early signs of macular degeneration, and examine the blood vessels which can indicate high blood pressure. With dilation or with the OPTOMAP, the doctor can view the outer edges of the retina (80% of the retina) to check for detachment, breaks, or tears.
