Expert Eye Care for Your Whole Family
Eye exams are essential for everyone – from infants to golden-agers, and even if you have no vision complaints. Many people push off visiting their eye doctor until they notice a problem, but that is not a smart idea if you want long-lasting, healthy vision. Many common age-related eye diseases and vision conditions are silent throughout their early stages, and a thorough eye exam by our Lewis Center optometrist is the only way to detect a problem. When it comes to children, they also tend not to complain when they can’t see clearly. Typically, kids will adapt to what they see – even if their vision is blurry.
Our eye care specialists will evaluate visual acuity, functional vision skills, and ocular health. So no matter how old you are or your health condition, it is time to schedule an eye exam at our Lewis Center office.

3 Reasons Why Routine Eye Exams are Critical
1. Quality Eye Health
Delaying your eye exam puts your vision at risk. Many typical eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy, do not present symptoms until they progress to a late stage. At that point, irreversible vision damage may already have occurred. However, when our eye doctors perform a comprehensive eye exam, we will be able to spot the early signs of a problem. This enables you to benefit from treatment as soon as possible – and early treatment is the best way to prevent vision loss!

2. Sharp Vision
As your body ages, so do your eyes. This applies to both adults and children alike. Getting older can lead to a range of vision conditions, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After age 40, presbyopia (difficulty focusing on close objects) is typical. Our thorough and precise eye exams at Lewis Center will check visual acuity to verify your accurate vision prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
During a pediatric eye exam, our eye doctor will assess your child’s entire visual system – in addition to checking visual acuity. This includes much more than reading a basic vision chart of letters and numbers on the wall. Many vision conditions, such as trouble with accommodation (focusing) and lazy eye, can interfere with learning. We pay special attention to uncover the warning signs of these vision problems that can compromise performance in school.
3. Overall Health Check-up
Your eyes provide our optometrists with a great view of your general body health. Particular diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, can often be detected on your inner eye tissues before they cause any other health problems. When these dangerous health conditions are left untreated, they can damage your eyes and the rest of your body. If we pick up on any signs of a serious health problem during your eye exam, we will refer you to a leading local physician for treatment.
What to Expect During Your Eye Exam at Lewis Center
Our eye doctor will perform the following procedures:
- Preliminary testing of your eye health: we will use a slit lamp to inspect your cornea, lens, and inner eye tissues
- Refraction exam: evaluates visual acuity to issue an accurate vision prescription for glasses and contact lenses.
- Dilated eye exam: we will insert eye drops to dilate your eyes, which gives a clearer view of your retinal tissues, optic nerve, and vitreous fluid
- Tonometry: this procedure (quick and painless) measures the pressure of your intraocular fluid; when elevated it can point to glaucoma.
We use advanced technology to perform your eye exam in our Lewis Center office. Our equipment includes OCT scans, Threshold Visual Field testing, Corneal Topography, Retinal Photography, and Visagraph eye movement testing.
Once we have all the results from your eye exam, we will discuss them with you. If you require treatment, we will review your options together to decide the most appropriate treatment plan.
