Eye Examinations

Did you know that your eye is the only place on your body that we can see your blood vessels at work without having to make an incision? This means that we can detect and even diagnose systemic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

  • prompt
  • professional
  • family-friendly
  • personalized for you!

Your Eye Care Examination will include FIVE key components

Preliminary Testing

Our optometric assistants will gather basic information about your ocular history, medical history, and visual needs.  They will measure your current glasses, take power and curvature readings of your eyes, perform glaucoma screening, perform retinal screening with the OCT scan and a retinal photo.

Refraction and Binocular Vision

This is a critical part of the eye exam.  Your optometrist will measure your eyes to carefully refine your glasses prescription.  Years of optical schooling and clinical judgement go into finding just the right prescription for your eyes.

Ocular Health Examination

From the eyelids back to the optic nerve and beyond, your optometrist will provide a thorough complete eye health examination.

Personalized Patient Counseling

This is where we take extra time and attention to provide personalized education and recommend customized eyewear solutions.
