We recommend that a child’s first eye examination to be before age 1, and then at age 3. At age 3 we can gather a tremendous amount of information about the development of the visual system. The eye health needs to be evaluated every year thereafter.
Those who wear contacts or glasses, who have a condition that causes vision issues such as diabetes, or those who are genetically predispositioned to eye problems should definitely see us annually for a thorough eye examination.
In addition to the most sophisticated contact lenses prescribing, we also pride ourselves in the huge diverse of eyewear selection. Please see our list of the designer eyewear we carry.
