About Us

The Limitations of Vision Screenings

If you've recently undergone a vision screening, you might think your eyes are in the clear. However, vision screenings only scratch the surface. Like checking your blood pressure without a full physical, they provide useful information but not the complete picture.

Vision screenings focus solely on visual acuity, leaving out crucial aspects like color vision, peripheral vision, depth perception, and the health of your eyes. Conducted by individuals with limited eye health training, these screenings may miss vital details.

​​​​​​​Why Choose a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

At Westchester Eyes, our comprehensive eye exams go beyond visual acuity. We cover every facet of your vision and eye health, ensuring a thorough assessment.

  • External Exam: We evaluate the whites of your eyes, iris, pupil, eyelids, eyelashes, corneal topography, endothelial.

  • Internal Exam: Through dilation, we examine the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease.

  • Visual Function and Eye Health: We test depth perception, color vision, peripheral vision, and assess your pupils' response to light. Additionally, we evaluate eye focusing, teaming, and movement abilities.

  • Glaucoma Testing: We check fluid pressure within your eyes to detect potential glaucoma.

  • Visual Acuity: Using different lenses, we determine if glasses or contact lenses can enhance your vision.

Advanced Diagnostic Testing at Westchester Eyes:

In addition to our thorough comprehensive eye exam, we offer a suite of advanced diagnostic tests to ensure the most detailed evaluation of your eye health.

  • Corneal Topography: We employ cutting-edge technology to map the surface curvature of your cornea, aiding in the detection of irregularities and conditions.

  • Wavefront Refraction: This sophisticated technique provides a detailed analysis of your eye's optics, enabling precise vision correction tailored to your unique visual requirements.

  • Corneal Endothelial Spectrometry: We examine the health of the corneal endothelium, crucial for maintaining corneal transparency and overall eye health.

  • OCT Macular Screening: Optical Coherence Tomography allows us to visualize and analyze the layers of the macula, aiding in the early detection of macular conditions.

  • Macular Pigment Assessment: We assess the density of macular pigment, which plays a key role in protecting the macula from harmful light.

  • Carotenoid Levels Measurement: Our advanced testing includes measuring carotenoid levels in your body, providing insights into your overall nutrition and eye health.

  • Meibography: We capture detailed images of the meibomian glands, crucial for assessing and managing conditions like dry eye.

  • TBUT (Tear Break-Up Time): This test evaluates the stability of your tear film, helping us diagnose and manage dry eye syndrome.

  • Tear Osmolarity: We measure the osmolarity of your tears to further assess the health of your tear film.

  • MMP9 Testing: This test helps identify inflammation on the ocular surface, aiding in the diagnosis and management of ocular surface disease.

  • Corneal Sensitivity Testing: We assess the sensitivity of your cornea, providing valuable information for conditions like neuropathic corneal pain.

  • Dark Adaptation: We evaluate your eyes' ability to adapt to low-light conditions, crucial for understanding night vision and early detection of certain conditions.

  • ERG (Electroretinogram): This test measures the electrical response of the retina, assisting in the diagnosis and monitoring of various retinal conditions.
