As part of your annual eye exam, your doctor may perform some or all of these comprehensive tests, depending upon your individual eye-care needs:
CLARIFYE℠ is LensCrafters’ innovative digital eye-care technology that offers the most comprehensive eye health and vision assessment available. With CLARIFYE℠ we are able to map the unique "fingerprint" of your eye with digital precision, to pinpoint the prescription you need to see your best.

Slit Lamp Test
Allows your doctor a highly magnified view of your eye to thoroughly evaluate the front structures of your
eye (lids, cornea, iris, etc.), followed by an examination of the inside of your eye (retina, optic nerve, macula
and more). This test aids the doctor in the diagnosis of cataracts, dry eyes, allergies, corneal irritation, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and contact lens fittings.
Offers a wider view of the eye’s internal structures, including examination of the central and peripheral retina (thinning, holes, tears, diabetes-related side effects) by using eyedrops to enlarge your pupils.
A computer that measures the pressure inside of the eye to determine one of the risks for developing glaucoma. If the pressure is high, an additional diagnostic test may be used.
Visual Fields Test
Checks for the presence of blind spots in your peripheral, or “side”, vision. These types of blind spots can originate from eye diseases such as glaucoma. Analysis of blind spots also may help identify specific areas of brain damage caused by a stroke or tumor.
It is mainly used by optometrists and opticians to verify the correct prescription in a pair of eyeglasses, to properly orient and mark uncut lenses, and to confirm the correct mounting of lenses in spectacle frames. Lensometers can also verify the power of contact lenses, if a special lens support is used.
Assesses depth perception and determines if eyes are working together. It is especially useful for identifying “lazy eyes” in children, which can be treated if identified while they are young.
Color Vision Test
Evaluates color deficiencies in the eyes (red/green or blue/yellow) by asking you to pick out numbers from colored mosaic-like illustrations. In addition to detecting hereditary color vision deficiencies, the results may also alert your doctor to possible eye-health problems that could affect your color vision.
Visual Acuity Test
A standard eye chart that measures the sharpness of your vision. Evaluates how well your current glasses or contact lenses are working, and if you need an updated prescription.
Uses a paddle to cover one eye at a time to help evaluate eye muscles. Can catch tendency toward crossed eyes in children. Evaluates for any indications of eye strain, which could be the result of strabismus or amblyopia.
Vision Profiler (Now part of CLARIFYE℠ exam)
A computer that maps the unique "fingerprint" of patient's eyes by utilizing four different kinds of measurements that can inform the doctor of the most accurate way to measure your prescription for both day and night vision.
Contact Lens Evaluation
Evaluates multiple elements including the shape of your eye, your vision correction needs and how often you will use the lenses. If you’ve never worn contact lenses, your eye-care professional will show you how to use your lenses and how to take care of them
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Takes cross-sectional pictures of the retina via a scanning laser. This technology is used to diagnose
and follow treatment in certain eye conditions and diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Can also check corneal thickness and contact lens positions as well.
Digital Retinal Fundus Photography
Photographs the retina and optic nerve (located in the back of the eye) to document the health of your eye. These images are used for the detection of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, high blood pressure-related disease and other retinal diseases. It is also an excellent baseline from which to follow ocular health.
