An eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye disease. Each test during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision or eye health.

At Rivoli EyeZone, every eye examination is tailored to your individual needs, however a typical visit to our stores would entail...

History Taking

As part of the history taking, the optometrist will ask you questions about your reason for visit, family history of medical and eye health conditions including lifestyle diseases like diabetes, hypertension etc., and allergies and any vision problems or symptoms you might be experiencing.



Before your full eye examination, you will undergo what is known as a pre-test. The optometrist uses the results of the pre-test during your eye examination. Dependent on your individual needs, a variety of different pieces of diagnostic equipment will be used in the pre-test.


Eye muscle test

This test evaluates the muscles that control eye movement. Your eye doctor watches your eye movements as you follow a moving object, such as a pen or small light, with your eyes. He or she looks for muscle weakness, poor control or poor coordination.

Visual Acuity Test

This test measures how clearly you can see. You will be asked to read different letters of the alphabet or numbers on a screen positioned some distance away. The lines of the font type get smaller as you move down the chart. Depending upon the extent of the print you can read, your vision is recorded for each eye separately.
Your near-sighted vision also may be tested, using a card with letters similar to the distance eye - for this test, a card is held at a reading distance.


Torch Light Examination

In a torch light examination, the optometrist will see the general well-being of the eyes, lids, eye lashes, cornea, pupil’s (black aperture in the center) reaction etc.


Power of Glasses

If you are already wearing eyeglasses, your power of glasses will be measured on the Lensmeter to understand the extent of change in prescription.

Eye Exam

On the basis of the findings of the pre-test, an optometrist will do other tests, such as auto refraction - this is used to see how long or short-sighted you are and helps your Optometrist to determine a lens prescription that will give you the sharpest, most comfortable vision. The assessment may also determine that you don't need corrective lenses.


Your optometrist may use a computerized refractor to estimate your prescription for glasses or contact lenses. Or he or she may use a technique called retinoscopy. In this procedure, the optometrist shines a light into your eye and measures the refractive error by evaluating the movement of the light reflected by your retina back through your pupil.
