Why Are Eye Exams Important?

Getting an eye exam is essential for several reasons. Not only do they help us update your lens prescription, but they can also help us detect early signs of eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.

We can recommend a treatment plan based on your eye health needs and vision when you visit us for an eye exam.

What You Can Expect

When it comes to your exam experience, our mission is to keep it comfortable and comprehensive. 

By the end of your exam, we aim to give you a complete understanding of your eye care needs and what you can do to support them.

Vision Testing

Vision testing is how we determine your lens prescription. Once we determine your lens prescription, we can recommend glasses or contact lenses to help you achieve clear sight.

We take a detailed look at your eye health at every eye exam. Eye diseases and conditions can develop for quite some time before showing symptoms, but by then, the issues they may cause could be permanent.
To learn more about the diseases we look for and the technology we use to detect them, please visit our Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management page.

At the end of the exam, we’ll provide you with an updated lens prescription and any other information you may need to keep your eyes healthy and vision clear.
In certain cases, we may refer you to a specialist to manage unique eye care concerns.

Common Vision & Eye Health Concerns for Adults


Presbyopia is a common age-related condition that causes a gradual decrease in the ability to focus up close. It’s caused by the hardening of the lenses inside your eyes, which affects your near vision.
Fortunately, multifocal eyeglasses or contact lenses can help correct presbyopia.

Cataracts are an eye condition that causes the eye’s lens to become clouded, making it difficult to see. It occurs when proteins in your eye’s lens clump together, making it difficult for light to pass through the eye.
Treatment for cataracts involves surgically replacing the eye’s lens with an artificial one, which typically restores vision.

There are several eye diseases you may be at risk for developing as you grow older. One of the most common is age-related macular degeneration, which can affect the central vision you need to read, drive, and recognize faces.
Learn more when you visit our Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management page.

Your eyes and vision change as you age. And although everyone’s eyes are different, aging can increase the risk of developing certain eye conditions and diseases.

That’s why visiting our team more often as you grow older is important. We can help preserve your vision and eye health by detecting these issues early. Some of the most common issues adults and seniors can develop include presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related eye disease.
