Wellness eye examinations are recommended for everyone once a year. You exam will also include prescription for glasses. If a medical problem is detected during your wellness exam you will be asked to return for your wellness exam on another date, so we may provide you with an accurate prescription for your glasses.
Contact Lens examinations* will include a prescription for glasses, and the contact lenses most suitable for you and your lifestyle. We do clear and colored contacts, astigmatism lenses, multifocal contact lenses, monovision fittings and hard contact lens fits. Contact lens exams will include a pair of trial contact lenses in your prescription, and a contact lens care kit.

- Diabetic eye exams
- Glaucoma assessment and management
- Dry eye assessment and management
- Foreign body removals
- Pink/Red eye assessment and management
- Flashes/Floaters assessment and management
- Vision loss unrelated to changes in prescription
