Vision Wellness Exam

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia

Our doctors will also evaluate your overall eye health and visual function, including but not limited to:

  • Visual acuity
  • Eye tracking
  • Eye coordination
  • Eye alignment
  • Peripheral vision
  • Focusing ability
  • Eye pressure - NO air puffs! :)
  • Anterior structural health
  • Posterior structural health

Retinal Imaging is also recommended as part of your annual eye examination to assist the doctor in documenting and detecting early changes in ocular health.  Earlier detection means more treatment options and better outcomes.  Most insurance plans cover retinal imaging or photography with a small copay.
