At Normandy Optical, an eye exam is more that just reading an eye chart. In addition to checking and refining your visual acuity, Dr. Wojton will ensure your eyes are working as a team, measure the pressure inside your eyes, and do a detailed examination of the front and back of your eyes. Often times this will require your pupils to be dilated, which gives a better view of the inside of your eyes.
In addition, we offer digital retinal photographs to all first time patients. Retinal photos are high resolution digital pictures of the interior portion of your eye called the retina. These photos can assist Doctor Wojton in diagnosing and documenting many conditions, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetes. These photos will be part of your permanent record. At future visits, Doctor Wojton can refer back to previous photos to detect changes in the retina which may indicate disease onset or progression.
