Routine comprehensive eye exams
- We offer comprehensive eye exams not only looking at your personal refraction, but the overall health of your eyes.
Emergency eye examinations
- Have something wrong with your eye? We will work to get you into our schedule as quickly as possible. If we can’t get into our schedule as quickly as you would like, we will try to make sure we can guide you to another provider who can meet your needs. Your eyes are important to us.
Contact fitting examinations
- Whether you’ve never worn contacts before or you’re a seasoned contact wearer, the first time you visit us and are fit for contacts you will be charged a one-time $40 fitting fee. This is because it takes extra time for the doctor to check the aspects of your eyes and your contact usage to find the right contact for your eyes.
- If you’ve never worn contacts before the doctor will choose a pair of contacts they feel will be the best for you. You will then go through a training class on how to insert and remove the contact lenses. After you are able to get your contacts in, the doctor will want to see you again to make sure they fit right and you are seeing clear. If all goes well and you and the doctor do not think any changes need to be made you are free to order your contacts.
Do I need to bring anything to my eye exam?
We ask that you bring your insurance card(s) so we can make sure that we correctly bill your exam and a list of all medications/allergies. If this will be your first visit with us we would appreciate if you could bring your current glasses and box(es) of contacts if applicable.
How often should I have an eye exam?
At our clinic your prescription is good for two years. However, there are many underlying diseases or other symptoms that you should have your eyes checked for. We strongly recommend that you get your eyes examined yearly.
How often should my child have an eye exam?
At our clinic, we recommend youth under the age of 18 should have their eyes checked annually. As children are growing their eyes change just as fast as they grow. If your child recently went through a growth spurt and they’re now complaining they can’t see, it’s best to get them in for a refraction because their vision probably changed.
How long does the eye exam usually take?
You can plan for your eye exam to take approximately 30-minutes.
Will the doctor dilate my eyes?
Possibly, this is done at the doctor’s discretion. In most cases the doctor will dilate your eyes to make sure they can get a thorough examination on the health of your eyes. However, you are free to decline the dilation if you so choose.
Can I drive after my eyes are dilated?
Most patients are able to drive after they have their eyes dilated. Working might be difficult if you work with a lot of small print, and your eyes will be sensitive to the sun, but this should wear off within 4 hours.
How old should my child be before starting with an eye exam?
We recommend staring your child on their yearly exams when they reach preschool age. However, if you notice changes or are concerned about their vision it is best to get them checked. Call our office to see if an eye exam is right for your child.
My child is under 5 years of age. Will your doctors see my child?
In order to answer this question please give us a call so we can ask you more thorough questions to determine if our doctors are the right choice for your child’s needs.
My child had a vision screening at school, do they still need an eye exam?
Yes. The vision screening is to check and see if they have difficulty reading. Our doctors look for any underlying medical conditions that might be causing your child vision troubles or what could cause them troubles in the future.
