About EyeCare of Blackfoot
At EyeCare of Blackfoot, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Jason Hurley, Dr. Jeremy Ball or Dr. Tyler Zaugg will determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Blackfoot optometrists, call 208-782-3422 today.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our BLACKFOOT optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Hurley will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Hurley may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our BLACKFOOT optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Hurley evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Hurley reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at 208-782-3422 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
