Evaluation and Recommendations for Contact Wearers

Regular eye exams are not only important for your sight but for your overall health as well. Eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration rarely show any symptoms until they are in the late stages of disease. Systemic conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure can also appear in the eye before being diagnosed by your family physician. We recommend that adults come in for a comprehensive eye evaluation every 12 months.

Pediatric Eye and Vision Examinations

It is recommended that children see an eye doctor for comprehensive eye examination at age 1, age 3, before starting school, and each year thereafter. Vision problems such as amblyopia (one eye is weaker than the other) or refractive errors (needing glasses) can be detected early. If amblyopia is diagnosed early enough it can be reversed, giving your child the best vision possible as they progress through school.

Evaluation and Recommendations for Contact Wearers

Contact lenses are among the safest forms of vision correction when patients follow the proper care and wearing instructions provided by their eye doctor. However, when patients do not use lenses as directed, the consequences may be dangerous. In fact, contact lens wearers could be damaging their eyes by not using proper hygiene in caring for their lenses.  Getting started right with your contact lenses involves going to a doctor who provides full-service care.
