In brief: Eye Exam not Painful

Eye exams are not painful.
You should expect your eye md to check your vision, test for glaucoma, dilate your pupils with eye drops to examine the inside of your eyes.

In brief: First time?

An eye exam is not painful, some of the drops used during the exam may give a short episode of burning.
You have no need to be anxious about this. Make sure the doctor tells you the results a the exam so that you know what is going on with your eyes.
