Frequently Asked Questions
How does an optometrist test my eyes?
How does an optometrist test my eyes?
1
An optometrist uses several tests and tools to evaluate your eye health and your vision. Your eye exam usually will include a glaucoma test, a retinal screening, a visual field screening, an extraocular muscle test, and a refraction test. The results of these screenings and tests help your optometrist evaluate your vision and overall eye health.
What should I bring to my eye exam?
What should I bring to my eye exam?
1
You should bring your vision insurance and medical insurance information to your eye exam. If you currently wear any prescription lenses, bring your eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses. You should also bring any and all questions you may have. Contact your optometrist if you have specific questions about any additional items you think you may need to bring to your eye exam.
Is a contact lens exam different than an eye exam?
Is a contact lens exam different than an eye exam?
1
A normal, comprehensive eye exam will allow your optometrist to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses. During your contact lens fitting, detailed measurements of your eyes will be taken to determine the right contact lenses for you. There is an additional fee for a contact lens fitting and evaluation for all contact lens patients (both new and established patients). Schedule your eye exam today to have all of your questions about contact lenses answered.
How do I know if my child needs glasses?
How do I know if my child needs glasses?

Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT CONTACT LENSES?

Contact lenses have come a long way, and they can work for all types of prescriptions! They can be very comfortable and easy to wear, especially with the most updated lightweight technology. We can help find the right contacts for your prescription. There are even bi-focal and multi-focal options to evolve with your vision needs. They can be very beneficial to an active lifestyle, and a great alternative to rotate with your eyeglasses, so be sure to ask us at your next visit. We can help find the right contact lenses for you, so make sure to set up a contact lens fitting when you schedule your next eye exam.
