Eye Tests

Regular eye examinations are very important for many reasons.

Eye examinations:

  • Check that your eyes are healthy

  • Detect any eye conditions before they arise

  • Monitor eye conditions that already exist

  • Update your glasses, or contact lens, prescription so that your everyday eyesight is the best that it can be.

If you feel like your eyesight is just fine, it is crucial to remember that many eye diseases do not have symptoms.

An eye test is more than just checking to see if you need glasses. Our eye examinations involve a full health check of your eyes.
