Eye & Vision Exams for Everyone
Everyone benefits from regular comprehensive eye exams. Eye and vision exams do more than test visual acuity. These exams are necessary to detect common eye diseases, like diabetic retinopathy, AMD, and glaucoma. Many eye diseases do not produce any symptoms, like eye pain or discomfort. The only symptom may be a slow, progressive loss of vision. Our Optomap device takes highly detailed images of the back of your eyes to check for diabetic retinopathy, AMD, and problems with your retina like retinal detachment. Regular eye exams can help find eye problems before you notice a change in your vision.
An optometry exam can also help with eye strain you may develop if you work on a computer all day. Ask about computer vision correction during your annual exam.
Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses
Our optometrists, Dr. Michael Lock and Dr. Jenessa Lock, recommend annual exams to keep your prescription up to date. If you wear corrective lenses, scheduling an exam once a year will help you avoid eye strain and headaches that can occur when wearing an outdated prescription. At our optical shop, staff members are here to help you find that perfect pair of frames to match your face shape and personal style. We’re experts in ordering all types of contact lenses, even hard-to-fit contacts, and a variety of prescription sunglasses.
Children’s Eye Care
Optometry exams for children can start as early as six months of age. If the child has normal development of vision, another exam may not be needed until the age of three, when they begin preschool. Children’s exams check for proper eye development, tracking and teaming, and eye coordination. As the child gets older, we will also examine their eyes to evaluate depth perception, color blindness, and visual acuity.
Eye Surgery Consultations
We are here to help determine if vision correction surgery is the right choice for you by answering all your questions. After your surgery, our optometrists can examine the surgical site and perform all your surgical post-care needs.
