The most impactful investment in overall wellness

A comprehensive eye health exam can detect a number of eye diseases, as well as signs of systemic conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease, high blood pressure and neurological impairments.

An eye exam takes roughly an hour and consists of a variety of checkups which include a health review, a visual acuity test, refraction test, visual field test, glaucoma test, slit-lamp evaluation and dilation.

All your veins and arteries end in your eyes, making an eye exam vital to overall health. If you are experiencing difficulty reading, blurry vision, seeing rings around lights or seeing dark spots, it’s time for an eye exam.
