Tests and diagnosis discussion for Cataract:

Although you might think you have a cataract, the only way to know for sure is by having an eye examination. Should your eye care professional find one, he or she can monitor it and advise you about any future treatment. (Source: excerpt from Are You At Risk for Cataract: NEI)

To detect a cataract, an eye care professional examines the lens. A comprehensive eye examination usually includes:

  • Visual acuity test: This eye chart test measures how well you see at various distances.
  • Pupil dilation: The pupil is widened with eyedrops to allow your eye care professional to see more of the lens and retina and look for other eye problems.
  • Tonometry: This is a standard test to measure fluid pressure inside the eye. Increased pressure may be a sign of glaucoma.

Your eye care professional may also do other tests to learn more about the structure and health of your eye. (Source: excerpt from Facts About Cataract: NEI)
