Comprehensive Eye Exam

Comprehensive Eye Exam

At Mountain West Eyecare, we provide comprehensive eye exams to patients of all ages. We use the latest and safest instruments to ensure the most accurate eye exams and the best possible results. During your exam, we will ask you questions about your personal medical and ocular history, family medical, and identify your specific visual needs.

The Comprehensive Eye Exam includes:

  • Eye pressure measurement
  • Retinal imaging and health
  • Corneal imaging
  • Visual fields
  • Visual acuity
  • Refraction errors
  • Macular degeneration risk
  • Glaucoma risk
  • Cataract monitoring

Based on the results, Dr. Gillett will discuss the best treatment plan and glasses prescription and recommend further testing if needed. If you already wear contact lenses or glasses, please bring them to your exam.

Scheduling regular eye examinations should be a part of your normal healthcare regimen. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Bethany Gillett at Mountain West Eyecare in West Valley City, UT. Don’t hesitate to contact us at 801-968-6772 with any questions you might have, or you can schedule your appointment on our website.


Children should be seen for a comprehensive eye exam at three or earlier if symptomatic and seen yearly due to their growing eyes. Patients 18 to 64 at least every two years unless they have eye conditions or wear contacts they should come in yearly. Patients 65 and older should be seen annually. Please click the link to the American Optometric association recommendations.

During a comprehensive eye exam, more than just vision is evaluated by your optometrist. Your eye doctor will examine your retina, optic nerve, and retinal blood vessels and test for common eye diseases.

You can prepare your eyes for a successful exam experience by getting a good night’s sleep and avoiding too much time on digital screens. Before your scheduled eye appointment, hold off on a morning cup of coffee (or two). You should bring your insurance cards (medical and vision), current glasses, and contacts with you on the day of the appointment.

A routine vision test in school or at the DMV only determines your distance vision. Comprehensive eye exams evaluate your eyes in detail to detect issues before they become noticeable.

Visual acuity, eye health, and eye function are all checked during a comprehensive eye exam. As part of the exam, Dr. Gillett asks if you are experiencing any changes in your vision, eye strain, dry eyes, or any other symptoms.
