Frequently Asked Questions
How do eye exams check my vision?
During your eye exams at Nicholas Rutkowski, O.D. and Associates, the team evaluates your visual system in various ways.
The Jaeger eye chart tests near vision, while the Snellen eye chart checks your distance vision. If you have myopia (nearsightedness), you’ll probably read the Jaeger eye chart with ease, but struggle with the Snellen.
With hyperopia (farsightedness), you’ll experience the opposite: the Snellen eye chart seems easy, but the Jaeger is hard to see.
If you have myopia or hyperopia, the team uses a phoropter to test your vision using various lenses. This gives you the prescription you need for vision correction like eyeglasses or contacts.
What are diabetic eye exams?
Diabetic eye exams are tailored for problems associated with diabetes. This type of exam checks the parts of the eye often damaged by diabetes, including inner-eye blood vessels, your retina, and your optic nerve.
Suppose you’re diagnosed with type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes. In that case, it’s best to schedule a diabetic eye exam as soon as possible. This is important because diseases like diabetic retinopathy often don’t cause any symptoms in their beginning stages.
