Comprehensive eye exam: A comprehensive eye exam will evaluate not only how well you see, but also identify potential eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Some eye diseases can result in serious vision loss if not detected and treated early. Often patients with these diseases don´t experience any visual symptoms before vision loss occurs. If you are over 35, you should have a comprehensive eye exam at least every two years. Patients over 65 or with a family history of glaucoma, diabetes, or diabetic retinopathy should have a yearly eye exam.

Contact Lens Evaluation: A contact lens evaluation is needed to determine the best fit, prescription and brand for each individual.  A contact lens evaluation can be done anytime within the first 6 months after the initial comprehensive eye exam.  

Pre/Post Lasik Exams and referral: Special testing may be needed to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK.  This includes initial exam and up to 6 months of follow up visits.
