High-Quality, Comprehensive

A comprehensive eye exam includes much more than just determining if you need glasses and contacts (refraction). To ensure your eyes stay healthy, make sure you are getting the care you need. On this page you will find information on what an eye exam should encompass as well as information on how often you should get an eye exam. Age, family history, health conditions, and other factors affect the frequency each individual needs to see their eye doctor.
