How good is an eye exam at wal-mart?

You get what you pay

Eyes
Consider the employment decisions made by a graduate of an optometry trade school. Should I set up my own office? work with another optometrist? Oh gosh, no one will have me so I guess I will work for Wal Mart. So you get the inadequate exam that an optom gives anyway, from the least consequential of them. You could see an ophthalmologist - right?

Dr. Andrew Shatz answered:

What do they do in a normal eye exam?

Dilated exam

Eyes
A typical new patient examination has three parts: refraction to determine whether you need glasses, checking the health of the front of the eye (from the cornea to the natural lens), and dilation. Although most people dislike the effects of dilation, it is necessary to allow the doctor a view of the structures in the back of the eye. Pressure is tested and the nerve is checked for glaucoma.

Could you miss glaucoma in an eye exam?

Sometimes

Open-uri20130408-18625-1unubvo
Depending on many factors: IOP fluctuation, dense cataract, small bound down pupil, small tilted optic nerve head, large nerve head with much peri papillary atrophy, angle anatomy, diagnostic lenses used, criteria used to document optic nerve cupping, diagnostic test interpretations, THE diagnosis can be difficult. But when in doubt, it's aways of great benefit to re examine at short intervals.
