Routine Vision Exams:
Most of us get our teeth checked every six months - why expect less for your sight? Plus, regular checkups and exams are covered by most insurance plans - so what are you waiting for? . At the end of each exam patients will have a prescription for glasses and/or contacts which expires exactly one year after the prescribed date. Don't forget to take advantage of our Optical Coherence Tomography machine which takes a picture of all 10 layers of a patient's retina and can detect many common and uncommon eye diseases such as the early stages Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and cataracts.
