Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrists in Somerset and Stanford, Kentucky, examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Drs. Murray and Nichols evaluate 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, our optometrists review the results and discuss any treatments with you. Contact us today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

At Eye Health of Somerset, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrists are able  to provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Drs. Murray and Nichols 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. Our optometrists 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 optometrists in Somerset and Stanford, Kentucky, provide regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Our eye doctors 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, our optometrists prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Somerset and Stanford offices includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform 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 Drs. Murray and Nichols to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Extremely professional not prejudiced against any customer in they do everything they can to help service our needs. Out of all the eye doctors in Somerset this is the one that I have always came back 2 through the years. I just want to say that they have amazing staff and doctors, I always thought that when somebody says that they feel like they are at home at a place like this it sounds corny, but really and truly that's what it's like there.

Dr. Murray and her staff at Eye Health of Stanford and Eye Health of Somerset are excellent! My family and I have been going to them for 20 years now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They also have an exceptional technician Callie Rogers who goes above and beyond to make sure my family’s needs are better!

Very friendly, courteous and thorough in exam. The only thing I could suggest. Is scheduling fewer patients at same time. Took a while to get seen by optometrist. Only one there and they kept her really running.

Moved from Northern KY area last year to Stanford, KY. I needed to have my eyes checked due to not being able to read small print. I went to see Dr. Murray for a checkup and I needed a new prescription. The exam was thorough, the ladies in the office were friendly and Dr. Murray took her time with me. A very pleasant experience. I am thankful I found Eye Health of Stanford to take care of my aging eyes!!
