If you haven't had your eyes examined within the last two years, schedule an appointment now. Routine exams are quick and painless and the only way to ensure good, healthy vision.  We use the latest technologically advanced instrumentation to achieve pin point accurate eye exams.  

Before your exam, we will ask you about:

  • Your health history
  • Your family history
  • Instances of eye problems in the past
  • Your work and lifestyle
  • Checking your vision

Next we will check your vision.

The vision test will determine if vision problems exist and, if necessary, what prescription to write to properly correct your vision. The test may also include:

  • Checking eye movement, peripheral vision, and color blindness
  • A glaucoma test (quick and painless)
  • Determining the health of your optic nerve and retina


Good vision is important for everyone. Routine eye exams
can uncover conditions such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness,
astigmatism and eyestrain early on, allowing for fast treatment of most
problems. Eye exams can also provide evidence of other serious,
but hidden, medical conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes,
inflammations, infections and the hardening of arteries. Eye ailments have
also been linked to learning disabilities that can be treated with vision


One in four children ages 5 to 12 has an undiagnosed vision problem that may affect their educational performance. Unfortunately, children with vision problems often have no way of knowing that what they are seeing is different than what others see. It is up to the adults in their life to help children reach their potential by ensuring that they are free of vision problems.

All children should have their eyes examined at or before their fourth birthday. If there is a family history of misaligned eyes, childhood cataracts or a serious eye disease, children should have their eyes examined before age three. Vision problems often respond to treatment better during the growth and development of a child's visual system, so early detection could be the key to good vision.

Telltale signs that your child could have a vision problem:
Children themselves often do not realize they have a vision problem. Your careful observance will allow you to spot problems early. Look for these signs:

  • Squinting, rubbing or blinking eyes a lot
  • Using a finger as a place mark when reading
  • Holding head at an awkward angle when reading
  • Closing or covering one eye to focus
  • Holding reading material close to face
  • Having red or crusty eyes

There is no better time than now to start the habit of regular eye exams for you and your family. If you haven't had an exam within the last two years, schedule one now. During your exam, your eye care professional will help set a regular schedule for future exams tailored to your personal situation.
