What are Optometrists?

Optometrists are health care providers who examine, assess, and manage conditions and disorders of the human visual system (the eye). They prescribe treatments for corrective errors including glasses and contact lenses.

Why are visits important?

While most people know about Optometrists and the diagnosis prescribing correction for visual errors using glasses and contact lenses, few know of the wide scope of diseases and conditions both ocular and systemic (body wide) an Optometrist looks for during an eye exam. From amblyopia, glaucoma, and macular degeneration to diabetes, hypertension, and many more. The unique view into the body through the eye makes the Optometrist a vital link in your health.

So if you are due (or past due) for an annual eye exam, contact us today for an annual eye exam.

Your first visit

After checking in with our friendly staff, you will be given a short questionnaire to collect information and past medical and ocular history to help focus and tailor your exam to you.

When you are finished with your questionnaire, the staff or doctor will begin pretesting with our automated instruments and, if necessary, further advanced screening tests.

Your doctor will then call you into the exam room where he will review the questionnaire, pre-test information and proceed with the eye exam.

At the conclusion of the exam you should expect a prescription, a follow-up schedule, and a smile.
