Over the years, vision assessment technology has advanced to the point that many eye exams include digital components. Thanks to new and improved equipment, digital eye exams are fast, easy and accurate.
What is a Digital Eye Exam?
Digital eye exams are customized automated vision tests that save time during your appointment and are used in combination with traditional vision exams.
These exams offer computerized eye charts and sensors that utilize the latest technology, allowing the eye doctor to provide an accurate optical prescription and detect the earliest signs of many eye conditions. Instead of performing the entire eye exam manually, these devices assist the eye doctor, as their results are computed automatically. The eye doctor then reviews the measurements and images to accurately determine your optical prescription and analyze your eye health.
You’ve most likely already had a digital exam without realizing it, as digital these exams are showing up in optometrists’ and eye doctor’s offices almost everywhere.
Digital Eye Exams Check Eye Health, Too
In addition to checking your vision, digital eye exams can also map and image your eye in a way that provides your eye doctor with detailed information about your eye health. Digital eye exams offer:
- Early detection of eye disease, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma
- Diagnosis of vision problems that may only occur at night
- Identification of the signs of high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes in your eyes
- Corneal topography, which aids in contact lens fitting
