Portland Eye Exams for Healthy Vision
Visiting your family doctor for an annual checkup is critical to managing your health. Doing the same for your eyes is just as – if not more – important for maintaining healthy vision and ensuring a high quality of life.
An eye exam involves a thorough, detailed examination of your eyes and visual health. During the exam, Dr. Tina Tsai will ask you about your medical history, family history of any diseases or health issues, medications you may be taking, or about any recent hospital visits. Keep in mind that these are all elements that can affect your vision in one way or another.
Your vision can also be affected by other things, such as the climate, hormones, pregnancy, and your personal lifestyle. Although your eyes and prescription needs may change over time, looking great doesn’t have to!

Did you know that your eye health represents your body’s overall wellbeing? From observing the blood vessels, veins, and nerves inside the eye, we can identify early signs of diabetes and high blood pressure. Aside from your vision being affected by poor health, simply the way the eye’s surface appears can indicate a diet of high triglycerides, a higher risk of heart attack or stroke. Not only do our eye doctors utilize our technology and expertise to evaluate your entire health, but we educate you on how to improve your daily lifestyle and feel your best.

Q&A with Dr Tina Tsai about Dry Eye Examinations
If I have dry eye and an eye allergy what will you do during the exam to evaluate it?
We screen for dry eye on all exams and check the tear film quality with fluorescein dye to se the healthy of the film. We also do a baseline scan of the Meibomian glands of the eyelids. These oil glands secrete oils on every blink, and if clogged, the healthy oil secretion isn’t reaching the eye.
Why not wait to treat dry eye?
Patients may never complain & after years, may end up with severe dry eye cases & terrible symptoms. By catching dry eye early on, we can help care for your eye health before the glands recede or even die out.
40-50% of patients require eyelid health care to help prevent and treat dry eye.
Did you know makeup can lead to early cases of severe dry eye?
Makeup is actually causing unhealthy eyelid especially when makeup like eye shadow is placed directly on the water line, which happens to be right on the Meibomian glands. Speak to your eye doctor about cleaning your eyes after applying your makeup and maintaining good eye health.
