What to Expect at an Eye Examination

Step 4 - The Cover Test - How Your Eyes Work Together

While there are many ways for your eye doctor to check how your eyes work together, the cover test is the simplest and most common. During a cover test, you will focus on a small object at a distance and then cover each of your eyes alternately while you stare at the target. This allows your doctor to observe how much each eye moves to pick up the target.
