Effective Eye Exams 

Our eye exams are thorough. We provide comprehensive eye exams that include collecting case history and various tests to determine your overall eye health. Visit us to experience caring, quality eye care!

Start By Digging Deeper

A complete eye exam can do so much more than determine your updated prescription. Eye exams are a crucial part of overall health care, so we need a bit of detail about your history before we get started!

Our medical history questionnaire is wide-ranging and covers topics such as:

  • Social factors
  • Family medical history
  • Known eye conditions
  • Total body symptoms
  • Insurance information

It seems like a lot, but we assure you it’s in the interest of ensuring we have the complete picture of your health! With this background information up-to-date, we can start your eye exam off on the right foot.

Please bring any contacts and prescription lenses you use as well. We want to make sure your vision correction suits you.

Tried & True Tests and Technology

Our experienced and professional optometrists will then begin your exam. We use proven methods and top-notch technology to assess your overall eye health, including tests that cover:

We search for several vision problems and clues to your total body health that can be seen within the eye.

We pride ourselves on your comfort and care. If you have any questions about the eye exam and your eye health, we’re happy to answer them.

Follow-Up

After your exam, we’ll come up with a therapy plan for your vision. If you need corrective lenses, we’re happy to offer a great selection of frames, lenses, contact lenses, and sunglasses!

We also offer children’s eye exams and specialty eye care to serve all your needs. Our team is dedicated to your family’s eye health, and we look forward to helping you head out into the world confident with your vision.

See You Soon!

For adults, we recommend yearly eye exams. This is especially important for our senior patients, as aging affects your eyesight. Vision problems can often be detected before you notice a change in your eyesight, meaning a visit to us is a good step for both care and prevention. Please book your next appointment today!
