“Routine” Visual Examination

Computerized PhoropterAt Advanced Eyecare there is nothing “routine” about evaluating your visual system. Using state of the art equipment is just the beginning.

Computerized Phoropter

This is the “giant pair of glasses” that the patient looks through used to determine the glasses prescription.  Our phoropter (right) allows you side by side comparisons of targets (no more relying on memory, “Which is better, number 1 or number 2”). The instrument also gives us the ability to memorize your current glasses prescription and with the push of a button place your new prescription in front of your eyes in one half second!

Pneumatic Eye Chart

In each exam room at Advanced Eyecare & Therapies is the opportunity while seated behind the phoropter to look at the “real world”. By air hydraulics the eye chart lowers to give a view of Sterling Savings Bank clock tower as a perfect target for distance viewing. Interestingly, approximately 40% of patients choose a slightly different prescription when they are able to see the “real world” compared to looking at just the eye chart at the end of the room. {rokbox title=|Each exam room includes this state-of-the-art, air hydraulic eye chart. :: Call today to book your next eye appointment with us (509) 535-5855| | text=| Watch a video of the eye chart.| size=|800 500|}http://www.drwylie.com/eyechart.swf{/rokbox}

Visual Performance

Dr. Wylie’s experience in undergraduate school (read Dr. Wylie’s Story) of losing the ability to stay awake when studying as well as losing comprehension of what he read changed the course of his Optometry career literally before it began. Dr. Wylie notes, “It became crystal clear (pun intended) to me how closely linked were my reading efficiency and visual efficiency. An integral component of the comprehensive visual examination is evaluating a patient’s eye coordination. Accuracy of eye movement, ease of focusing and the ability to sustain eye coordination can be extremely important for successful school work, work speed and accuracy as well as sports performance. During the examination these different areas are screened and if there are any concerns further testing will be scheduled for an in depth evaluation into what different treatment options are available.
