Our Approach: Comprehensive
Eye Exams in St. Louis
At Erker’s, our highly experienced eye doctors will assess all aspects of your eye health, beginning with an evaluation of your family’s eye history. This better informs our optometrists about the genetic conditions and risk factors to which you may be susceptible.
Our eye doctor will then use a slit lamp microscopy exam to check your eye health. They will also perform a tonometry test to determine if you are at risk for glaucoma, and after a pupil dilation, they’ll check the blood vessels in your retinas and look for signs of swelling.
Finally, we will perform a vision refraction test to determine your eyeglasses prescription.
