Eye & Vision Exams

Eye Exam ImageAt Elite Eyecare and Optical, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care.  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 that may 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 Fees and Consultation

Eye Exams start at $75.00 for our self pay patients, if using insurance there may be a copay due at the time of your exam. 

If you are a contact lens wearer or interested in trying contacts there is an additional exam fee of $35.00  to receive and/or renew your contact lens prescription. Even with vision insurance this is still a fee that is not covered by most insurers.  If you have any questions on costs before your appointment, feel free to reach out to us! 

If you are having a medical eye problem, this will be different from your normal routine eye exam therefore fees may vary according to the type of visit and procedures that take place. 

During an eye exam, Doctors 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. Doctors 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 Jonesboro optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Doctors 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, Doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Jonesboro 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 Doctors 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 optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Doctors 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, Doctors reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (870) 972-6040 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
