The eye examination is divided into different steps.
At reception, a patient is asked for personal information of a general and ophthalmic nature.
General Eye examination
This takes place after the essential diagnostic tests and is divided into a series of further tests and clinical observations:
- Tonometry (Measurement of ocular pressure)
- Natural and corrected visual acuity
- Fundus Oculi Examination (Retina)
This is a clinical and diagnostic assessment of ocular motility, fusional vergence, stereopsis, and of binocular vision. A more in-depth examination of these aspects of visual function is essential in the treatment of children and adolescents, and is of great importance in adult patients.
