Adolescents and Adults:
Maintaining Vision for Daily Life

Eye exams for adolescents and adults are crucial steps in maintaining optimal vision and overall eye health throughout the varying stages of life. They not only assess visual acuity to determine the need for corrective lenses but also screen for common eye conditions that can affect individuals in these age groups.

Additionally, these exams provide an opportunity to detect early signs of more serious conditions. Early detection allows for the most effective treatment options, which can significantly slow or even halt the progression of eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.

Pediatric Eye Exams: Ensuring Healthy Vision for Children

Our pediatric eye exams are child-friendly and comprehensive, ensuring a positive experience for our young patients while thoroughly assessing their vision and eye health. We screen for common childhood eye conditions like strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye), which, if left untreated, can significantly impact a child's learning and development.

According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), 1 in 4 children has a vision problem that can interfere with learning and behavior. Yet, vision problems in children are often underdiagnosed, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that less than 15% of preschool children receive an eye exam from an eye care professional.

Our goal is to bridge this gap by providing accessible, quality pediatric eye care that lays a foundation for a lifetime of optimal vision and academic success.

Comprehensive Eye Exams at Indian Creek Family Eye Care

Our thorough examination process is designed to evaluate not just your vision, but the overall health of your eyes, ensuring any conditions are detected early for optimal treatment outcomes. Here's what your exam testing may include:


This involves using eye drops to widen pupils, allowing a clearer view of the back of the eye, including the retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels. It's essential for detecting diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.

Visual Acuity Test:

This test measures the sharpness of your vision, using a chart of letters or symbols to determine how well you can see at various distances.

Neurologic Assessment:

This evaluation checks the health of the nervous system components involved in vision. It can identify issues with the optic nerve and visual pathways to the brain.

Cover Test

This test involves focusing on a small object at a distance and then up close with one eye covered at a time. It helps detect how well your eyes work together and can identify conditions like strabismus or binocular vision problems.

Visual Field Assessment

This test measures your peripheral vision, helping to detect blind spots and the presence of conditions like glaucoma.


In a dim room, we use a lighted instrument to observe the reflection from your retina, which helps estimate your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses.


Using a phoropter device, we can assess how light rays bend as they pass through your cornea and lens, identifying refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.


This test measures the pressure inside your eyes, known as intraocular pressure (IOP), which is a primary risk factor for glaucoma.

Slit Lamp Exam/Biomicroscopy

Using a special microscope with a light, this exam allows us to see the structures at the front of your eye in great detail, assessing for conditions like cataracts, macular degeneration, corneal ulcers, and more.


This procedure measures the thickness of your cornea, which is crucial for diagnosing glaucoma and before any LASIK surgery.

Color Vision Assessment

This test checks for color blindness, ensuring you can perceive colors correctly.

Stereoacuity Test

Assessing your depth perception, this test can identify issues with eye coordination and the ability of your eyes to see in three dimensions.

Ocular Photography

High-resolution images of your eye are taken to document the current state of your eye health, allowing for the detection of changes over time.
