Eye & Vision Exams

Eye Exam Image

At Mez Mer Eyes, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able to provide treatment options and, in many cases, restore vision or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, our doctor will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. The doctor will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrist provides regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam.Our doctor will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, the doctor may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable our doctor to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. The doctor evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, the doctor reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I’ve been wanting to find an eye doctor in the area since I moved here almost 2 years ago and I am so happy with Dr. Chavez. First off, I called to make an appointment thinking it wouldn’t be until later next week but they had a spot open for me today. Dr. Chavez was so nice and answered all of my questions. The two girls at the front desk, Meriah and Kourtney, I believe, we’re also the nicest and helped me pick out my first pair of glasses. I highly recommend MezMerEyes if you’re looking for a new eye doctor."

  • "Welcoming and patient staff...I suffered with poor vision for over a year due to an incorrect RX by another local optometrist.. Dr. Chavez was very professional and understanding, what a welcome breath of fresh air. I just can't stop talking about how pleased I am with my correct contacts; best visit I've had at optometrist's office in over 5 years.... Exceptional pleasant experience...I highly recommend MezMerEyes for anyone needing vision care. Oh if you need glasses/frames, they have a ton (no exaggerating) unique, one of kind..."

  • "I had a great experience with Mez Mer Eyes. Hilda helped me while I in the store. She was so friendly and accommodating. I was in town for the day and forgot my contacts at home but had my prescription. They got me right in and hooked me up with some contacts so I could enjoy a day on the water. Their store is very clean and they have a huge selection of frames for glasses and sunglasses. I highly recommend giving this place your business. Thank you Hilda and Mez Mer Eyes for saving my mini-vacation!"
