As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Hurricane ophthalmologist, Devin A. King, M.D., examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination, tonometry, and dilation of the pupils. Dr. King evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, the pupils will be dilated. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize applanation tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. King reviews the results and discusses an treatments with you.
