What to Expect
The best way to protect your vision is a yearly comprehensive eye exam. When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted with friendly faces. The doctor will inspect your eyes, answer questions, and discuss your eye care treatment options. We will be precise with our measurements to give you an exact glasses prescription. In addition to determining your vision prescription, our doctor will test your color vision, depth perception, and check for any early indicators of possible eye conditions such as cataracts, retinal problems, and glaucoma.
