Regular eye exams are the best way to detect eye problems, developing eye diseases, and other issues before they impair your vision. As with most types of disease, early diagnosis and treatment greatly improves recovery and long-term health. Vision changes or loss are not always obvious and our doctors want to be proactive in encouraging regular comprehensive eye exams.
During an eye exam, multiple tests will be done to assess your ocular health and vision quality. This information is used by our optometrists to make decisions regarding long-term vision care, corrective lenses, and other aspects of your eye care.
Most eye exams are completed in under an hour. Contact lens fitting exams may take slightly longer.

Tests the Optometrist will perform include:
The optometrist may perform other tests, including dilation, as needed.
Most eye exams take under 60 minutes to complete.
