    • 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.

    • 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.

    • A comprehensive eye exam is administered by an optometrist and can detect not only vision problems but problems with eye health and general health as well. A vision screening is typically performed by a general medical practitioner such as a pediatrician or a nurse. While a vision screening can help identify vision issues, it can miss many important issues that a comprehensive eye exam can identify. This is why everyone is encouraged to get annual eye exams. Schedule your eye exam today!

    • An annual eye exam involves more than just updating your glasses or contact prescription. A comprehensive eye exam can also detect eye health issues as well as general health problems. Conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected in early stages through an eye exam, and this can result in early treatment. Schedule your annual eye exam today.

    • 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.

      The purchase experience was good. But the after purchase experience was lacking. when i went to pick up my glasses, it was basically hand me the glasses and tell me that I need to wear them a day or two then I can get adjustments. That was after I told them that they were a little off kilter and things were not clear. They did not even sit straight on my face. Very disappointing. I did go to a different lenscrafters this evening and they made all the necessary adjustments so that things are clear.

      Initially great customer service. Picked up the glasses a week later and they sold me the wrong transition lenses. Requested the darkest available. Confusion, OK. Paid for a new upgrade for darkest transitions. It took nearly 2 weeks to get them. Pick them up and they act like they aren't sure they have the right glasses. 10 minutes into the drive home and I realize there is a scratch at the inner part of the right lens toward the nose. Lenses never get as dark as those exposed under black light as an example in the store. Each time the transition lenses were explain, they contradicted the previous explanation. They don't know the difference between a fast transition lens and a darkest transition lens. Go somewhere else. I wish I had.
