Take a look at Greg's visit to our office for his pediatric eye exam!

INFANT EYE EXAMS

We offer a complimentary eye exam for infants that are between
6-12 months old. The InfantSEE Exam is meant to detect potential
problems that, if undetected, may lead to learning and
developmental issues later.​ In addition, the doctor will be checking
for eye disease and normal eye development.

Following this exam, we recommend that your child returns at age 3
and age 5. At age 3, children are checked for eye health, eye 
​movement skills, focusing, and the development of binocular-vision skills. At age 5, children are examined to determine the readiness of vision skills for learning in the school settings. An estimated 25-30% of children have a significant need for eyeglasses or other correction for vision problems.
PEDIATRIC EYE EXAMS

For children between the ages of 5-17, going in for an eye exam yearly is strongly recommended. At this age they are still developing, meaning their eyes are also still developing. Having your child come in yearly helps to make sure that they have the visual correction they need to see in and outside of the classroom.

During your child's eye exam, we will be testing their vision by asking them questions to understand how their vision is throughout the day. Based off of these answers and what they want as their visual corretion (glasses or contacts), the doctor will find thebest lens power to help with clarity of sight and comfort for school, play, sports, and life!
ADULT EYE EXAMS

During your eye exam we test visual acuity and refraction. Visual acuity is
clarity or sharpness of vision. To determine this, your doctor will ask you
questions to understand how your vision is throughout the day. This is how
your near and distant vision are assessed and how our doctors identify the
correct lens power for best clarity of sight and comfort. 

Additionally, we will evaluate the internal and external health of your eyes.
Your doctor will perform a slit lamp evaluation to assess the external health
of your eye. To assess the internal health of the eye, we offer dilation or the
Optomap Retinal Exam. Dilating the pupils allows the doctor to see the
entire back of the eye. However, routine dilation requires an additional
amount of time and can leave one feeling somewhat uncomfortable. The
Optomap Retinal Exam uses retinal imaging which replaces eye drops with the flash of a camera. In contrast to dilation drops, you will not experience blurred vision or sensitivity to light following your exam. The Optomap will produce the most comprehensive image of your retina and allow us to perform a more thorough exam than was previously possible. This allows our doctors to better prevent or reduce vision loss in our patients with a simple, quick, and painless-patient-friendly new exam. It is important to note, however, that should any abnormalities be detected or if we cannot obtain an acceptable image, dilation may be necessary.

CONTACT LENS EXAMS

Similar to an eye exam, your doctor will be testing your visual acuity and refraction or prescription changes. During this time, the doctor will be checking that you can see clearly with your contacts, that they are the best fit for your eyes, and are not causing any  potential eye health problems . Following this, your doctor will also check your visual acuity and refraction without your contacts in to get your spectacle prescription.


If you haven't worn contacts before, your doctor would use this exam to find contacts that best fit your eye so you can see clearly and are comfortable. After determining the best lens option, we perform testing with your new lenses to ensure optimal vision, fit and comfort and then we provide contact lens Insertion and Removal and Care Training to help you understand how to use and take care of your contacts for a lifetime of healthy wear.
