Eye & Vision Exams

Eye Exam Image

At Vogue Optical, 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 to provide treatment options and, in many cases, restore vision 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.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Polina Yusim will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Yusim will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Brooklyn optometrist provides regular vision acuity tests as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Yusim 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. Yusim may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Brooklyn office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist 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. Yusim to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Brooklyn optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Yusim 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. Yusim reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (718) 646-6200 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had gone to Vogue for a few years and was very pleased, But when it came time this year to get new glasses I cannot say I was pleased. After 3 pairs of glasses they could still not get a pair that fitted me. I could not get my money back because of course they were the buy one get one free, so I would have ended up paying them money. So now I am stuck with a pair of glasses that do not fit well. There is not a chance I will be going back."
