Eye Exams

Dr. Muller will gently place an anesthetic eye drop on the surface of your eyes so that you will be completely comfortable while you are being examined. Using her binocular microscope (or slit lamp), she will then examine the structures of the front of your eyes, including your eyelids, conjunctiva, cornea, iris and lens. She will also check the pressure inside your eyes to screen for glaucoma. With a hand-held lens, with or without dilation, Dr. Muller will examine the structures inside of your eyes, including your retinas and optic nerves.

Many eye conditions and diseases can be detected using the slit lamp examination including cataracts, dry eye, allergic conjunctivitis, demodex, Meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis, contact lens associated issues, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, to name a few.

Visual Acuity Testing

During your comprehensive eye exam your visual acuity will be tested to measure your vision quantitatively.

Refraction

If you are not seeing properly, Dr. Muller may refract you to see if wearing eyeglasses (or contact lenses) can improve your vision.
