What to Expect When Visiting a Jacksonville Optometrist

When you visit a Jacksonville optometrist at one of our three locations, you will find more than friendly service and willing partners in your family’s eye care. You will also find a knowledgeable professional waiting to help you find the best possible vision solutions for you and your entire family.

The first thing our Jacksonville optometrist will likely do when you arrive at our office is have the front desk staff help you fill out any necessary paperwork before bringing you back. There, your doctor or an assistant will take your medical history and ask about any previous eye conditions or troubles you may have had, as well as any prescriptions. It’s important for us to know everything we can about your eye health history so we can prescribe the best possible course of treatment moving forward.

Common Tests at an Eye Doctor Visit

Many people are concerned about whether their eye doctor visits will be scary or painful, especially children. The answer is no. The scariest test is the air puff test, more properly referred to as the non-contact tonometry, or NCT. This directs a puff of air at your open eye to measure the pressure of your eyeball, and is completely painless.

Other common tests include the visual acuity test (think the black letters and numbers of decreasing size) and the color blindness test, the cover test to check eye alignment, eye movement and depth perception tests, and the retinoscopy test to help determine which lens prescription will be most effective in treating any visual deficiencies you might have.
