What is a visual test?
Vision tests are tests of the different functions of your eyes. For example, the tests can measure the ability of your eyes to see details at far distances. The tests can also check your ability to see details at near distances, check for gaps in your field of vision, evaluate your ability to see color, evaluate your depth perception, and more. Often, vision tests are done during examinations for eye health, but they can be done in other instances too.
What does a vision test consist of?
There are actually many different kinds of vision tests, and each one consists of different things. For example, with the visual acuity (sharpness) test, a professional may ask you to read letters of different sizes on an eye chart. Each eye may be tested by itself, then both eyes may be tested together. There’s also the refraction test (for prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses), the visual field test (to check for gaps in vision), and the color vision test (for colors). Each test is different, but each is simple and comfortable.
Is vision testing comfortable?
Yes, vision testing is comfortable for the patient. You shouldn’t feel any discomfort during any of the tests. The professional may use dilating drops for your test, but these drops are harmless. When you see a professional for a consultation, the professional will give you a better idea of what to expect from vision testing, but you can expect to be comfortable during your test.
Why would I need vision testing?
You might want or need a vision test if you have blurry vision, poor vision, or a similar issue related to your sight. Here’s a list of some of the common reasons to get vision testing:
