What happens during general eye exams?

When you arrive at Saratoga Eye Institute for general eye exams, Dr. Choi evaluates your vision using specialized testing. You first read from an eye chart to assess your far vision and look through various lenses to check for near vision problems.

Dr. Choi examines your eyes using a special light and may dilate your pupils to get a more in-depth look at the inner parts of your eyes.

He may check the pressure of your eyes using specific diagnostic tests or utilize imaging procedures to have a detailed analysis of the entire health of your eyes.

After you complete general eye exams at Saratoga Eye Institute, Dr. Choi lets you know if you’re a candidate for medications, lifestyle changes, eyeglasses, contact lenses, or eye surgery. He tailors each vision and eye disease treatment to your customized needs, medical history, and goals.
