Different types of Eye Exam:  Visual Acuity: It is a classic eye chart test in which the optometrist uses a chart that often has numbers or alphabets written on it. You will initially read the chart far away and later on at your arm’s length. The test will help in detecting your vision and also the visual acuity and also the ability to focus on distant objects.  Cover test: This test helps in detecting the ability of your eyes to work together when focussing on a particular object. At the time you focus on a distant object the doctor covers each eye individually. In the process the adjustment speed of each eye is judged. Isolating each eye helps in revealing the problem that could be masked due to both the eyes working in accord.  Refraction: It is an upper version of retinoscopy. While the former gives a general prescription refraction exam gives exact results. In this process you look through several lenses in sequence with the help of a phoropter placed in front of your eyes. You are asked to judge which two lenses perfectly give a clearer picture. Further by narrowing the lenses the doctor can find the perfect pair of lenses for you.
