Comprehensive Eye Exams

Our optometrist provides annual eye exams to monitor the health of our patients' eyes and ensure they continue to wear the appropriate strength prescription. During a comprehensive exam, your optometrist will perform various tests to identify any changes to the quality of your vision or the structures of your eye. Annual exams can detect more than just eye-related diseases and vision complications; our eyes often show the first signs of adverse general health conditions as well.
