Eye Exam FAQ


What you need to know

Most vision insurance plans and health insurance plans provide for one to two comprehensive eye examinations a year.



Dr. Ding will dilate your eyes  to make your pupils larger during a comprehensive eye exam. This allows him a better view of the internal structure of your eye. When your pupils are dilated you will be more sensitive to light and may find it hard to focus on objects up close. Bring sunglasses to your exam to help reduce glare and light sensitivity after you leave.


Dr. Ding performs screenings for glaucoma, cataracts, and other eye diseases by observing changes in your eyes and through tests like intraocular pressure (IOP) and visual field checks. Diabetics can suffer a loss of vision due to changes in the blood vessels of the retina. Through an eye examination, your eye doctor can diagnose retinal changes that can indicate the progression of the disease.


Refraction tests measure the kind of vision correction you need. If you wear glasses or contacts, this is the determining point for your prescription. As a highly-skilled optometrist, Dr. Ding is an expert in measuring your eyes and learning exactly what vision correction you need to see with peak clarity. 


Those who wear or want to wear contact lenses need a contact lens exam in addition to a standard eye exam. Special tests, such as a measure of the eye surface and an evaluation of your tear production are necessary to prescribe the best contacts for each individual. Whether you choose glasses or contact lenses, it’s important to receive a yearly eye exam to maintain vision and overall wellness.

Parrelli Optical recommends regular eye exams for all ages. Children generally need annual eye exams, while adults typically need exams every 1-2 years based on individual risk factors. Dr. Ding can recommend the ideal exam schedule for you and your whole family.
