Why do I need a comprehensive eye exam?
You may think its okay to neglect your yearly eye doctor visit if you don’t require vision correction. However, this annual checkup is vital to maintaining your overall health and well being. As you advance into adulthood, the risks of ocular disease increases significantly. A comprehensive eye examination allows your doctor to evaluate your eyes for signs of glaucoma, macular degeneration, as well as systemic health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, and multiple sclerosis. When we do eye exams, we refuse to cut corners. We always schedule ample time so you will never feel rushed. We provide complete eye care for both adults and children. In spite of our track record for high accurate prescriptions, there are eyes that can be unstable for reasons ranging from medications to illness. In these cases, we will gladly re-examine the patient and remake the glasses within the grace period of 30 days. All glasses re-checks after 30 days of initial examination will be subject to fees.

EACH DAY IS PATIENT APPRECIATION DAY! WE OFFER A COMPLIMENTARY RETINAL IMAGING WITH ALL COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS. CANNOT BE COMBINED WITH INSURANCE.
A Retinal imaging is a recent technological advancement in eyecare. It enables your optometrist to capture a digital image of the retina, blood vessels and optic nerve located in the back of your eyes. This aids in the early detection and management of diseases that can affect both your eyes and overall health. With retinal imaging technology, the most subtle changes to the structures at the back of your eyes can be detected. Early detection is so important because treatment at an early stage can delay progression and reduce the severity of eye diseases and other health conditions including diabetes. For a future of healthy sight, retinal imaging is recommended every year as part of you eye exam. To take high-resolution pictures inside the eye, we use a computer-integrated digital imaging system to record a detailed view of the retina. Since nothing touches the eye, photo-documentation is painless. Also, this digital image provides an excellent reference point for future comparisons. Retinal photography assists in the detection and management of problems such as diabetic changes, hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, optic nerve diseases such as Glaucoma, and retinal holes or thinning. It is especially important for people with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal diseases, flashing lights, floaters, headaches, or a high glasses prescription. We believe that all our patients should receive this test and therefore have made it complimentary to increase the standard of care in our practice.
