Woman getting an eye examEverybody Needs Eye Exams!

You might assume that only those individuals who have vision problems are sustain acute eye issues need to get their eyes examined. The truth, however, is that everybody needs eye exams on a regular basis, no matter how healthy their eyes may seem or how sharp their vision appears.

Some of the leading causes of blindness, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, show no external signs and may not even start affecting your vision until permanent damage has already occurred. These dangers grow even more elevated in seniors aged 60 or over, who must get annual eye exams without fail. Even small children need a series of pediatric eye exams to check for any eye diseases or functional problems that might impair their long-term vision. Our vision team offers eye exams for these age groups, along with regular exams for working-aged adults and older kids.

Your Comprehensive Eye and Vision Exam

When you report to our optometrist for your comprehensive eye and vision exam, your eyes will be thoroughly checked inside and out. First, however, we will talk with you about your medical/family history, any known eye or vision conditions you may have, any changes in your vision you might have noticed. We will then perform evaluations such as:

  • Slit-lamp testing to check the front of the eye for injuries or cataracts
  • Viewing of the retinas and optic nerves (through dilated pupils) to check for macular degeneration and other retinal disorders
  • Tonometry, a method of checking the fluid pressure in your eyes for potential glaucoma

We also check how well your eyes are functioning. You will view and respond to various lights or patterns so we can study your focusing, teaming, tracking, and visual processing abilities. Vision testing allows us to understand how a possible refractive error might be affecting your eyesight at certain distances so we can prescribe the appropriate corrections.

  • "I had a great visit and eye care experience. I went to Dr Reeve with “Dry Eye”. I was kind of a mess…blurred vision and very uncomfortable. He saw me for two visits. On the first visit I got my diagnosis and a prescription for eye drops. On my second visit, I reported continuing symptoms. Dr Reeve then did a procedure and it worked! The doctor and staff (including his assistant) were businesslike, polite and helpful. Great experience."

  • "I had a great first-time experience! The ladies in the front were very kind.  I first saw the optometrist who was very kind and thorough. Then I was seen by Dr. Woods who was also kind and thorough. They both listened to my concerns and were very attentive to my needs. When it came time for ordering my contacts, I dealt with the optical shop across the hall where you try on frames. They were super friendly and very helpful! I’m definitely coming back!"

  • "Such a positive experience with his office! My first appointment was with Dr Reeve who was friendly and thorough with his exam. A year later Dr Woods performed my LASIK surgery and I have been thrilled with the results!! Their staff is super friendly and has really worked at getting my insurance to cover medications and making recommendations for where to get the lowest pharmacy fees!! I would recommend these doctors to anyone looking for ophthalmologists :)"
