Vision exams should occur yearly or as prescribed by your doctor. Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. We also focus on Myopia Control Management. Myopia management solutions include eye drops and specialty contact lenses which can help slow down the rapid visual deterioration that occurs with Myopia (near-sightedness) In addition, part of your exam includes the following procedures: slit lamp examinations, dilated eye examinations, refraction for glasses and contact lenses and glaucoma pressure testing as well as a series of other computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes. 

Children's eye exam


Early detection of various eye conditions is crucial to the development of normal vision. It is important to know if there is any history of pre-maturity, delayed motor development, frequent blinking or rubbing of the eyes, any eye turn, family history of eye disease, inability to track objects or maintain eye contact, or any other abnormalities.

According to American Optometric Association (AOA) guidelines, vision exams are recommended at 6 months old, 3 years old, then subsequently every year 1-2 years while the child is school aged. A child’s examination is similar to that of an adult. We also carry a large selection of prescription and non-prescription protective sports eye wear.
