At Weber Vision Care, your comprehensive eye and vision exam will include some or all of the following steps or procedures
- Your general health history;
- Any medication usage and allergies;
- Your family’s eye and medical histories;
- Specific vision requirements for your work or hobbies;
- The nature of any specific problem(s); and
- Your visual and ocular history
During the preliminary testing, one of our optometric techs will check your visual function and ocular health by checking a variety of factors, including your pupil size and pupillary responses, your near point of convergence (the closest point of fixation just before the image becomes double); your stereo vision; and your color vision. We’ll also test you using a computerized auto refractor, which gives us your corneal measurements, used in contact lens fittings. It also gives us an estimate of your distance vision. We also might test your spectacles using our computerized lensometer, which lets us read the prescription in an existing pair of glasses.

Your Eye Exam for Contact Lenses
Your Contact Lens “Talk”
- The choice between contact lenses that are designed to be replaced daily or those which can be worn for more extended periods.
- The choice between soft contact lenses for their ease and comfort and hard, or rigid gas permeable lenses, which have advantages in certain situations.
- The choice, if you need bifocals, between multifocal contact lenses or monovision (a prescribing technique where one contact lens corrects your distance vision and the other lens corrects your near vision).
- The choice between maintaining your eye color or selecting lenses that allow to change your eye color.
