Eye Exam Image

At DeSoto EyeCare, 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 an Ophthalmologist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our Doctors are able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Optometric Association recommend 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, our 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. Dr. Schaeffer, Dr. Wertheimer, Dr. Hooker, and Dr. Hao 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 Southaven and Olive Branch Eye Doctors provide regular vision acuity testing as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Our 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, Dr. Schaeffer, Dr. Wertheimer, Dr. Hooker, or Dr. Hao may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Southaven and Olive Branch offices includes testing eye functionality. Our Eye Doctors perform 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. Schaeffer, Dr. Wertheimer, Dr. Hooker, and Dr. Hao 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 Southaven and Olive Branch Eye Doctors examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Our Doctors evaluate 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. Schaeffer, Dr. Wertheimer, Dr. Hooker, Dr. Hao will review the results and discusses any treatments with you. Contact us at (662)-349-1959 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

My Father is an Ophthalmologist which helped me realize the importance of chosing the right eye doctor. DeSoto EyeCare has been able to take care of my routine care and an eye emergency since I moved here. Being able to have physician care with the same provider that handles my routine care has been a huge convenience.
