Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Frank Castaldi will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Castaldi will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our Stamford optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Castaldi will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Castaldi may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Stamford office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Castaldi to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Stamford optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Castaldi evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Castaldi reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you. Contact us at (203) 324-1606 today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.


State of the Art Equipment

Diopsys Nova Vision Testing System uses electrophysiology to objectively measure the function of the entire visual pathway from the eye to the visual cortex.  The Diopsys Nova device does this by using two technologies - Visual Evoked Potential {VEP} and pattern Electroretinography {ERG}. VEP and ERG have been demonstrated to provide data to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of many disorders.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

Visual Field Instrument detects dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, brain tumors or other neurological deficits.
