All regular examinations include ophthalmoscopy and biomicroscopy. These procedures allow the doctor to examine the internal and external structures of the eye. In addition to cataracts and glaucoma, many systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes can be detected with these procedures. The optic nerve, vessels, and other tissues of the eye are evaluated during your eye health examination. We also perform a painless procedure called tonometry to measure the pressure inside your eye or intraocular pressure (IOP). This common procedure is important in the detection of glaucoma.
