Having a comprehensive eye examination on an annual basis is the most important thing you can do to protect your vision for years to come. Your eye exam is so much more than just a way to measure the performance of your vision so you can get the appropriate eyeglass or contact lens prescription.
During a comprehensive eye examination, many issues related to your general health as well as the health and the health of your eyes can be detected. Early detection leads to getting treatment at the first sign of trouble when a qualified optometric physician performs a detailed exam of your eyes. Conditions such as Cataracts, Diabetes, Glaucoma, and Macular Degeneration, Strabismus and Amblyopia just to name a few.
There are many options to choose from when having your glasses made. There are probably features available that you haven’t given any thought to. Anti-scratch and anti-glare options are pretty much a given but if you spend a lot of time looking at a screen, you may want to consider blue light filtering or if you spend a lot of time outdoors, transitional lenses might be perfect for you.
Another option is for people who do a lot of night driving. We can apply a product called Crizal that will prevent the headlight halo effect from irritating your eyes.
Be sure to talk to our optician about your lifestyle and when you will get the most use from your eyeglasses. They are the best source for learning which lens options are right for you.
We love our sunglasses and we look great in them but sunglasses do a lot more than look great. Sunglasses can prevent a lot of eye stress and if you need specialty glasses we can add your Rx into the lense as well.
We provide safety glasses for working and sports glasses for playing.
We are authorized providers of safety glasses for Boeing, Volvo, CR Bard, Parker Hannifin, Nucor, and many others. Please call us and ask if we are an authorized provider for your employer.
Most people can wear contact lenses with the right prescription and a little practice. If you do not enjoy wearing glasses, contact lenses are an excellent alternative! They are easier to wear than you might think and most contact lens wearers adjust to them in a short amount of time.
We are able to correct your vision with different types of contact lenses. Your contact lens options may include lenses you change monthly, bi-weekly or disposable lenses called “dailies” where your lenses are replaced every day.
There are even progressive contact lenses for those with multi-vision requirements.
That will depend on several factors including your vision, your lifestyle, and what will be the most comfortable for you.
During your exam, our eye doctor will fit new wearers with a pair of lenses that are comfortable, provides you with the best correction to your vision, and fits with the lifestyle you lead.
If you wear or want to wear contacts, you need a contact lens exam in addition to a comprehensive eye exam. A contact lens prescription measures for lenses that sit directly on the surface of your eye. Our eye doctor will perform special tests during a contact lens exam to evaluate your vision with contacts. The test will include a measurement of your eye surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for you.
After the exam, our eye doctor will fit you with a trial pair of contacts and have you wear them for a few days. In about a week, you’ll need a follow-up exam to make sure you have adjusted to your new lenses.
