The hardships that should be reported in an ophthalmologic examination include eye drops on one or both eyes, eye pain, redness of the eye or eyelids, eye damage, eye and eye drop changes, eye dryness, etc. In addition, patients should also be screened for monitoring chronic and systemic illnesses that do not originate primarily from the eye, but may impair visual function such as arterial hypertension, diabetes, thyroid disease, systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis, etc. .

Ophthalmologists advise both regular and eye check for children and adults, regardless of whether they have a disability or not. Also, an ophthalmologic examination is part of a systematic review for drivers and for employment.
An ophthalmologic examination begins with a conversation with a patient where he exposes his or her visual problems (if any), and the doctor sets out targeted questions in order to get as much information as possible. Then it goes to the so-called. physical examination during which the ophthalmologist in the order determined and with the help of ophthalmologic instruments and apparatus examines the eye and the auxiliary organs. This includes determining the visual acuity and possibly attaching the glasses, examining the front segment of the eye (eyelids, veins, corneas, legs, pupils, lenses and eye chambers), measuring eye pressure and examining the last segment of the eye (eyebrow).
If the situation so requires, the doctor may send the patient for further diagnosis to additional tests such as ultrasound of the eye, KVP, HRT, OCT, GDx, FA, FFA.
