Eye Exams


At Eye Care Center, we can help you detect eye problems at the earliest stage. We recommend regularly scheduling eye exams – even if your eyes seem healthy – to have your eyes checked and get tips from our optometrists on how to best care for your eyes and your vision. We want to make sure your prescription is the best one for you. If you currently wear eye glasses or contact lenses, please bring them with you to your appointment. Your pupils will be dilated, so you may also want to bring a pair of sunglasses for your trip home.

Children's Eye Exams

Your child should have a comprehensive eye exam done by an optometrist between the ages of 3 and 5 years old and again before entering the first grade. If no problems are detected and no further symptoms arise, we recommend a regular vision check every two years.

Adult Eye Exams

The regularity of eye exams varies according to your age and medical history. If you wear glasses, have a family history of eye problems, or have a health condition that puts you at greater risk, you should have your eyes checked more frequently than our following suggestions. If you have no symptoms, we recommend you have your vision checked every two years. As you age, impaired vision or health problems may arise, so be sure to keep up with exams. After age 60, we recommend you have your eyes and vision checked every year considering you are at an increased risk for common eye problems. 
No two patients are the same, so feel free to consult with our staff and optometrists to learn more about when you should be seen based on your personal medical history.
