Using a visual acuity chart and a reading card, our eye specialist will assess the patient’s ability to see small details clearly at both near and far distances. Any refractive errors will be detected and corrective measures will be suggested using a combination of lenses. Eye specialist will systematically change the lens combination until a clear focus is obtained.
Using a number of tests, the eye doctor will evaluate how well your eyes align or coordinate when working together and individually.
