Our Doctors at Wink Eye Care strive to provide each patient with a thorough and educational experience while assessing overall ocular health.
For every exam, we will discuss your overall medical history, current medications (including over the counter) and daily lifestyle. Many illnesses and medications may affect or could have the potential to lead to associated eye issues. It is also important for us to learn about your life style because we want to prescribe glasses, contact lenses and therapy based on your specific needs.
Our comprehensive eye exams include the following, please expand each of the sections for more information.
We believe just as important as it is for us to understand your medical history, you should be provided with the details to your eye exam. Please feel free to ask questions during your exam, we want you to feel comfortable and walk away with an understanding of the process. During your exam, we will :
Measure visual acuity, which means to measure how well you can see
Determine your eye-glass prescription at distance and near
Evaluate your eye muscle coordination
Check to see if you have any color deficiencies
Assess the front of the eye with a microscope
Perform a glaucoma test screening test (eye pressure measurement)
Dilate the eyes to properly evaluate the retina
Patients often ask do you have to dilate the eyes? To properly assess the retina (the back of the eye), we use to routinely dilate everyones eyes. Looking at the retina through an un-dilated eye is like looking through the keyhole of your door to see what is inside the house. Its easier and more effective if you open the door, put your head in and look around. The drops and technology used allows us to examine the back of the eye properly.
Your contact lens fitting evaluation will determine if you are a candidate for wearing contact lens. This assessment includes tests and procedures which go beyond an eyeglass prescription: the measurement of the corneal curvature, a modified health assessment of the eye and an in-office trial with diagnostic lenses. Your contact lens evaluation includes your updated glasses prescription, a diagnostic pair of contact lenses, follow up if necessary, and your Contact Lens Rx. A contact lens evaluation is like an “upgrade” from the glasses examination.

Medical Evaluations are evaluations that DO NOT pertain to correcting for glasses or contacts. Medical evaluations are performed to help manage and/or treat certain health aspects of the eye similar to the following:
All types of Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)
Dry Eyes and Dry Eye Syndrome
Migraines and/or Headaches
Corneal Abrasions and Ulcers
Latisse Evaluations (Longer Eye Lashes)
**Most medical evaluations and procedures are normally covered by a major medical insurance (deductible met). These are different from Vision Insurance and Plans.
Glaucoma Evaluations are usually for patients with a family history of glaucoma or those previously diagnosed with the condition. Dr. Tran is certified as an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist in the state of Texas and can help you diagnose, treat and manage glaucoma if needed. While there is no cure for glaucoma, early detection is vital to stopping the progress of permanent vision loss.
The examination includes the following:
Detailed Case History
Visual Angle Evaluation via Gonioscopy
Eye Pressure Measurement(s)
Corneal Thickness Measurement
Pupil Dilation (to examine the back of the eye)
Optic Nerve Head Photography for documentation and analysis
Visual Field Threshold Testing for documentation and analysis
Diabetic Examinations are usually requested by your Primary Care Physician. Patients who are Type I or Type II diabetics are recommended to have yearly dilated comprehensive exams to monitor and detect any signs of Diabetic Retinopathy which may cause permanent vision loss. We can perform the exam and contact your Primary Care Physician to update your chart.
The examination includes the following:
Detailed Case and Medical History
Eye Muscle Evaluation
Color Vision Testing
Peripheral Vision Examination
Binocular Vision Analysis (how well your eyes work together)
Prescription Determination (not required for diabetic eye exam, but necessary for a standard eye exam)
