Check your eyes.: Most likely at an eye appointment you will have your eyes checked. There can be a question and answer period where you tell the eye doctor why you came and if you have trouble seeing, and then your eyes would be examined. They would likely be checked for quality of vision and then examined for any sign of disease. Afterwards the findings would be discussed with you and a plan would be made.

Vision and exam: At a routine exam at an ophthalmology office, your vision, intraocular pressure, pupils, and motility are checked. Your pupils are dilated so the doctor can do a thorough examination of your retina to check for glaucoma, macular degeneration, or other retinal problems. If desired prior to the exam, your glasses prescription is also checked.

"routine"?: This may also need other tests dependent on silent findings of the exam or in your history including medications. Do not with hold any information that you don't think is relevant. Answer all questions truthfully. Routine sometimes is not routine.
