Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Disease
Dr. Nichols will perform a complete assessment of your vision and ocular health in order to diagnose conditions or prevent them from starting. For more information about specific eye conditions, visit the Minnesota Optometric Association .
Your exam will include a full eye health assessment which includes an examination of the inside and outside of your eyes including dilation, an intraocular pressure evaluation (often referred to as the “glaucoma test”), photography of the eyes if necessary, visual field examination if necessary, and many other tests that are done on an as-needed basis.
With regular eye examinations many eye conditions can be prevented or caught at a very early stage, making treatment more manageable and vision loss much less likely. Annual examination is recommended for most patients. Please come to your appointment with any questions and concerns regarding the maintenance of your ocular health.
