Why Comprehensive Eye Exams Matter

Safeguard Your Vision and Health in One Examination

Our comprehensive eye exams encompass more than just vision correction. We take a holistic approach to eye care, focusing on your overall well-being.

Our experienced optometrists invest time in understanding your unique story and medical history, conducting thorough examinations using state-of-the-art technology.


Going Beyond Vision Correction

While ensuring you have the correct prescription for glasses or contact lenses, our comprehensive eye exams delve deeper. We evaluate your eyes for potential eye diseases, assess their collaboration, and even search for signs of chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes.

Often, we are the first to detect these conditions during an eye exam.

Early Detection Preserves Sight

Many sight-threatening eye diseases, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, progress silently, causing irreversible damage before symptoms manifest. Our comprehensive eye exams act as your initial defense. Early detection and treatment can safeguard your vision and overall eye health.

Pediatric Eye Exams: Building a Bright Future

Children and young adults depend on a clear vision for learning, sports, and daily activities. Undiagnosed vision issues can impede their development. Regular eye exams are imperative to ensure their success in school and life.

When Should Kids Have Eye Exams?

According to the American Optometric Association, all children should have their eyes examined at six months, age three, and before starting school.We recommend exams every two years for those without vision problems or risk factors. Children with existing issues or risk factors should have more frequent examinations.

Vision Exams for Those Over 40: Embracing Aging Gracefully

As we age, our eyes undergo transformations that can impact our daily lives. Conditions like presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration become more prevalent. Regular eye exams are vital for maintaining your quality of life.

Safeguarding Your Vision

In addition to annual eye exams, understanding your eye health and risk factors is vital. Many age-related vision issues are preventable with proper care and early intervention. Your vision is invaluable; we’re here to help you preserve it.


We’re Revolutionizing Eye Exams with Marco Technology

Modern eye exams have advanced with technology, like the Marco TRS 5100 and Marco ARK, making them more efficient. The Marco ARK auto refractor quickly measures various eye parameters with comfort. Regularly monitoring these readings is crucial for detecting conditions like keratoconus and glaucoma early. Even children as young as one yearold can undergo exams with this patient-friendly technology.

The Marco TRS 5100 automated refracting system refines prescriptions and enhances patient education. Investing in this technology can differentiate your practice and exceed patient expectations.
