What happens at an eye exam?

It's important to go for your eye exam regularly.

An eye exam involves checking your vision and giving you an accurate prescription, as well as checking the health of your eyes thoroughly. We are equipped to test children as young as 6 months as well as seniors. We check for eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and the effect of diabetes to your eye health. If you are interested in Laser Vision Correction (LASIK) let us know and we discuss safe options for you.
