Eye & Vision Exams


At In Focus Eyecare, 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 provide treatment options and in many cases restore 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. Andrea Neff will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you 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. Neff 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 Fort Mill optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Neff will measure how each eye is seeing by using various charts and instruments. 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. Neff may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.


Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Fort Mill 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. Neff 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 Fort Mill optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Neff 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. You may also choose to have retinal fundus photos which is an actual photo of the inside, back surface of the eye and becomes a permanent record in your chart.  Dilation and retinal fundus photos enable Dr. Neff to detect such conditions as high blood pressure, diabetes, tumors and other diseases early on when they can be best treated.  Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Neff reviews the results and discusses an treatments with you. Contact us today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
