Q. How long will my examination take?

A. We estimate your eye examination will take approximately an hour. Your eye examination includes Visual Field screening, Glaucoma Testing, Refractive eye testing, as well as external and internal ocular health status testing. Your time in the office may vary, depending on how long it takes you to fill out forms, if you need to look for frames and pick lenses. You can download a copy of our Medical History Form to help speed up your time in the office.

Q. How often do I need an eye examination?

A. We recommend a yearly eye examination. Many eye diseases do not have symptoms and if left undetected, can lead too much larger complications.

Q. What is a good age for my child's first eye exam?

A. We recommend you have your child's first eye exam, prior to starting pre-school, around the age of 5. Children as young as 6 months old can have their eyes examined, if needed. If you notice your child may not be seeing well, you should not hesitate to have his/her eyes examined.

Q. What age can my child start to use contact lenses?

A. There is no specific age at which a child can start wearing contact lenses. It really depends on your child's maturity and parental supervision. Contact lenses require maintenance and the ability to insert and remove them, on their own. It is very important that your child does not over use the contact lenses, wearing lenses longer than they are comfortable may lead to other eye health issues. Contact lenses are not a replacement for eyeglasses, all contact lens wearers should have a pair of glasses.
