Comprehensive Eye Care
While the doctors at Better Vision New Jersey are specialists, they will also take care of your overall eye health. Consistent eye care is beneficial and possibly crucial to treat any condition. Therefore, our comprehensive eye care includes diagnostic testing, medical, and surgical services such as :
- Screening and treatment for common eye diseases through comprehensive eye exams.
- Pediatric evaluations and care.
- Evaluations for patients who have visual complaints but no diagnosis.
- Providing prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses.
Our comprehensive eye exams are non-invasive and very comfortable. A variety of tests and procedures may be employed to evaluate your vision, and such an exam could take up to an hour, or more, depending on the number of tests necessary to fully evaluate your vision and health.
Some tests commonly performed during comprehensive eye exams are:
- Visual Acuity Testing uses eye charts to measure the sharpness of your vision.
- Color Blindness Testing is used early in the exam in some patients to rule out color blindness, and detect eye health problems or hereditary tendencies that may affect your color vision.
- Cover Testing checks how your eyes work together and for binocular vision problems by asking you to alternate between covering the left and right eye with your hand while focusing on a fixation target with your uncovered eye.
- Ocular Motility Testing is used to determine how well your eyes can follow a moving object or quickly move between and accurately fixate on two separate targets.
- Retinoscopy is used to obtain an approximation of your eyeglass prescription, and will be performed either manually or using an automated device.
- Refraction is used to determine your exact eyeglass prescription, using a variety of instrument, most commonly a phoropter, which may or may not be connected to a computer.
- Intraocular Pressure is usually measured by tonometry, which requires a blue light.
- Slit-Lamp Examination gives your doctor a highly magnified view of the internal structures of your eye to determine your general eye health and detect any signs of infection.
- Dilated Examination widens the pupil so the doctor can see the entire lens and the retina out to its periphery without the pupil constricting as it usually does in response to bright light. This is the part of the examination, which requires the most waiting, since the drops used to dilate the pupil can take about 30 minutes to accomplish dilation. The dilated exam is an important part of any comprehensive exam, even if the patient has no specific complaint pertaining to the eye.

What makes Better Vision New Jersey so exceptional? Read what our patients have to say.
I had cataracts and after Dr. Calderone operated on my eyes, my vision is now 20/20. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It’s a tremendously well-equipped practice in terms of the technology that’s used to take care of your eyes and the technical staff is also superb.
I have been a patient of Dr. Calderone’s for more than I can remember and I have always found the physicians and entire staff to be professional, caring and thorough in everything they do. All the physicians spend quality time with each patient to hear about their concerns or answer questions. I personally would highly recommend him to family and friends.
I had originally gone to the practice for floaters in my eye and discovered that I had cataracts. I found everyone at Better Vision New Jersey—from the physicians to the staff—to be extremely kind and caring. I was very impressed with the quality of care I received and how well they not only treated me, but also my husband. Their facilities are state-of-the-art and they are absolute experts in their field.
