Additional exams include:

Pupil reaction to light
Dr. Lee uses the results of these and other preliminary screening options to determine if you need more in-depth vision testing.
Will my pupils be dilated?
Dr. Lee uses various techniques to examine the structures of your eyes if required pupillary dilation is one of them. This is critical for diagnosing any issues that affect the back of your eye and affect your vision. To see the internal structures of your eyes, Dr. Lee will use special eye drops to dilate your pupils. The drops will increase your light sensitivity and make it harder for you to focus close up. make sure you bring a pair of large, dark sunglasses with you to your appointment, if not our staff to give you a disposable pair for you.
