What Are Comprehensive Eye Exams?

Comprehensive eye exams take an in-depth look at your overall eye health. They’re key to maintaining sharp vision, as they help uncover eye diseases early on so we can start managing them long before they impact your eyesight. Our attentive doctors and Optometric Technicians utilize the latest technology to personalize your exam to your eye health history, ongoing concerns, and comfort.

Why Do I Need an Eye Exam?

Your eyes, and as a result your vision, are constantly changing, no matter what age you are — regular eye exams help us monitor and keep up with those changes. And eye exams are an important preventative measure against eye diseases as well: advanced detection is one of the best tools to protect your vision from eye conditions before they have a chance to create symptoms.

Our doctors take their time to understand you, your lifestyle, and your overall eye health. That’s not just because we want to treat you like family: it’s also so we can personalize your exams, treatment, and eyewear to you.

Why do I need an Eye Exam?

Specialized Exams

Each of our patients’ eyes are unique; we believe their eye exam should be, too. Whether you just need a standard checkup, age-specific screenings, or have more immediate concerns, we have an eye exam for you and every member of your family.

“I always have a great experience during my annual eye exam. The staff here is so friendly and makes you feel very welcome. I have been seeing Dr Traverse for many years and although thorough explains things in layman terms. It never feels like he is rushing to get you out the door.”

“I made an appointment here because it was in my VSP network and ended up LOVING it. The staff, from when you walk in the door to when you get to the exam room, are friendly, welcoming and kind. Dr. B is great, and I am happy to say I have new glasses & contacts with the RIGHT prescription for the first time in my 15+ years of wearing them! I actually helped one of my patients get an appointment after he broke his glasses on accident and he loved them as well.. Highly recommend!!”
