Eye Examinations

If you have never had an eye examination before you may be unsure what to expect. Rarely do any of our tests or procedures cause pain or discomfort. You will be happy to know we do not use “puff of air” test. Much of what we do is to get to know you and your needs, your general health, work environment, your hobbies and interests for which you rely on your vision. We focus on you as an individual and all aspects of your eye care in our office. Since many health conditions and medications can affect your vision and eyes, a thorough history is essential. We are not just looking at your eyes alone, but as they relate to the rest of your body. Your first visit in our office may take up to an hour, perhaps longer depending on your needs, complexity of care, and necessary tests.

You will be dilated or have an option to have Optomap performed. This remains the best methods to detect early nerve and retinal disease. It is still the method preferred by retinal specialists for evaluation of the paper thin tissue that allows you to see.

We believe you will be impressed with the high level of eye care you receive where the emphasis is on YOU and your well being. We are proud to be in a small town and provide excellent care as well as personable service. You will not get this service at the big box stores. We look forward to meeting you and your family to help solve your vision problems.
