Getting an eye exam is more than just testing your vision. Eye exams can assist in the early detection of vision conditions and health conditions such as: Glaucoma, Diabetes, Cataracts, High Blood Pressure, and Astigmatism.  That’s why it’s important to get an eye exam on a regular basis. Children need eye exams, too!  Did you know that the American Optometric Association recommends that children receive an eye exam as early as six months of age? Our nationwide provider network will be happy to assist you in servicing your vision care needs.
