Family history, previous eye or vision conditions, systemic conditions, and medications will also be discussed during this part of the examination.

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Dr. Ketchum performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Ketchum to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
Dr. Ketchum evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and adnexa. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils and use modern technology. After completing these short tests, Dr. Ketchum will review and discuss any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (903)-474-9090 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
