Opening this October!
The American Optometric Association has demonstrated that up to 80% of a child’s learning in school is through their vision.
Furthermore, 1 out of 10 children has a vision problem that is significant enough to impact learning.
We want to give everyone the opportunity to grow, learn, and live a fulfilled live, which starts with a friendly and comprehensive eye exam.
Here’s what you can expect during your eye exam:
After checking in, the first step of your eye exam is a pre-test, where we discuss your medical history about your eyes and overall health.
We’ll also perform some quick tests such as: vision check with your current glasses or contact lenses if you wear them, check your eye pressure without the puff of air, check the curvature of the front of your eye and how your eye focuses, and offer an eye health screening.
During your eye exam, Dr. Teten will evaluate your eye health and vision.
Some tests may look familiar, such as the classic, “which is more clear, one or two?” However, for children, this is often not a response they can give, so Dr. Teten evaluates how your child’s eyes focus on objects at different distances.
Dr. Teten also evaluates how your eyes move and track objects (eye tracking) and how your eyes work together (binocular vision).
She will also asses how your eyes focus as they look at objects up close, such as schoolwork, reading or computer use; often this can lead to difficulty focusing or seeing things clearly.
She will also take a detailed exam of your eye health from the outside of eyes, including your eyelids, all the way to the back of your eye called the retina.
She will look at the surface of your eye to asses for any dry eye conditions or allergic conditions and will evaluate for cardiovascular conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol, as well as any inflammatory conditions that may be undiagnosed, as well as glaucoma and retina health.
The eyes truly do give a great window into the human body’s overall health, so it is important to get a thorough comprehensive eye exam.
Once the eye exam is complete, Dr. Teten will spend time discussing your results with you in the exam room before you leave.
She loves helping both kids and adults learn more about their eye health and vision.
Dr Teten may also give you some tips to proactively improve your eye health and vision with routines to incorporate into your daily life to promote a healthy lifestyle for you and your family.
While contacts and glasses usually correct most vision problems, specialty services may be necessary in some cases. Instead of being referred from doctor to doctor, get dry eye therapy, myopia control, and vision therapy right at our office.
Whether you’re looking for glass or contacts, we’ve got you covered.
Choose frames to match your individual style and personality.
If you prefer contact lenses, select from daily disposable contact lenses or monthly wear contact lenses based on your preferences.
And don’t forget about sunglasses to protect your eyes from the damaging UV rays. We have a great selection of non-prescription and prescription sunglasses for kids and adults.
