An eye exam consists of a set of tests that are used to assess your vision and look for eye problems. Your Eye Associates of the South doctor will most likely use a variety of tools, shine bright lights on your eyes, and ask you to look through a variety of lenses. During an eye exam, each test assesses a different component of your vision or eye health and is a pain free procedure.
