It is generally recommended that all individuals receive a complete eye exam at least every one to two years, depending on your age, health conditions, and ocular history. With regular exams, our doctors can diagnose serious eye conditions in the earliest and most treatable stages. Routine exams include vision screening tests, eye pressure measurement, complete examination of the eye, and other testing as needed. We can also update your eyeglass or contact lens prescription.

If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you are at a higher risk for several eye diseases, including diabetic retinopathy. It is recommended that all diabetics have at minimum a yearly eye exam. While routine eye exams are important for everyone, they are especially vital if you have diabetes. During this exam, we will dilate your pupils and thoroughly examine your eyes to look for signs of diabetes affecting the eye. Early detection and treatment of diabetic eye disease can preserve your vision for the long term.
Glaucoma is an eye condition that can often be present and cause vision loss without any symptoms. For this reason, routine exams are very important in detecting glaucoma. Our doctors can perform several tests to screen for glaucoma and provide treatment to prevent permanent vision loss.
