Protect Your Vision

At Bonner Eye Clinic, Dr. Mariano, Dr. Young and Dr. Haugeberg offer general eye exams. Even if you are not experiencing any vision problems, these exams are important to protect your vision. Some eye diseases do not have any symptoms, so your eyesight could be at risk even if you aren’t aware of any problems.

During our eye exams, we take time to understand your medical history as well as any family history of eye diseases. When you become a regular patient at our practice, we will have baseline knowledge of your eye health so even minor changes can be detected quicker. If you are an adult with generally healthy eyes, an eye exam may only be necessary every 1-2 years – or even longer if you are a young adult. However, if you have underlying conditions we may recommend that you come in more often.

Tests During Eye Exams

Your eyes may be dilated during the exam to allow our doctors to view your entire eye health using a silt-lamp. If you wear glasses, we will measure your current refractive error to see if any changes need to be made to your prescription. We will also check for any indications of eye diseases by performing:

  • Eye pressure measurement (glaucoma test)
  • Visual acuity (vision definition)
  • Blind spot detection (visual field test)
  • Eye misalignment (cover tests)
  • Pupillary function evaluation and pupil evaluation
  • Slit lamp
  • Indirect Ophthalmoscopy

Specialty Testing: OCT Scan & Retinal Photography

OCT Scan

An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scan allows our team to view and take pictures of the different layers of your retina (the light-sensitive tissue at the back of your eye). Using light waves, the thickness of your retina can be measured and mapped. The OCT process can help diagnose conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or a macular hole/pucker. 

Retinal Photography

Digital retinal imaging is used to take a high-resolution photograph of the back of your eye to diagnose or monitor conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, glaucoma, high blood pressure or even melanoma. With your eyes dilated, this process involves scanning your eyes with a laser to create digital images that can be interpreted. These images can also be compared over time to monitor changes in your retinal health. 

Underlying Health Problems

It is possible that your eye exam could raise red flags about potential health problems. Conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and other medical conditions often affect the eyes. Your eye doctor can bring these findings to light so you can follow-up with your primary care doctor if necessary.
