How are cataracts diagnosed?
In addition to a complete medical history and eye examination, diagnostic procedures for cataracts may include:
• visual acuity test - the common eye chart test (see above), which measures vision ability at various distances.
• pupil dilation - the pupil is widened with eye drops to allow a close-up examination of the eye's retina.
In addition, other tests may also be performed to help your eye care professional learn more about the health and structure of your eye.
