About Eye Exams
Standard vision tests are quite well known to most people. Kids commonly are given these tests at school, and employees might be asked to take one for work purposes. Consequently, getting a thorough eye exam on a regular basis is particularly important. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, comprehensive eye wellness assessments include multiple important testing procedures that enable R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. and our team to determine your general eye health. It is very important to see an ophthalmologist if it has been over two years since your previous comprehensive evaluation or if you have detected any problems with your eyes or ability to see clearly.
What Does an Eye Exam Entail?
Receiving thorough eye exams on a routine schedule is important for everyone. Full eye assessments can also uncover other major yet controllable medical concerns, such as injury to the retina, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Most eye assessments at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana take around an hour. Your checkup will begin with a routine vision test to determine how sharp your sight is. If this test reveals that you should have prescription lenses, our team will likely follow it with refraction testing to figure out what your lens prescription needs to be. We may also test for glaucoma using an air puff test and macular degeneration using a special visual grid. Other tests may include examinations of your peripheral vision, color vision, and if necessary or requested, a close exam of the inner eye through dilation drops.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
