Comprehensive Eye Exams
A thorough eye examination is highly recommended for all adults. Even if you don’t have a family history of eye disease, our state-of-the-art equipment can detect and diagnose glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, or macular degeneration early enough to prevent, slow, or reverse their onset. It is recommended that all adults should have their eyes examined every 2 years at least. Those with a history of eye disease should have an exam more frequently, once or twice a year.
Scheduled eye exams are great for updating your prescription and detecting common eye diseases and ailments early. Regular exams are essential for eye health and maintenance,whether you have them yearly or bi-yearly.
