An optometrist on our team will also ask about your medical history and any medications you are taking. Be sure to mention any vision problems you have been experiencing so that we can properly diagnose and treat the problem.
After the exam, an optometrist on our team will discuss your options for corrective lenses or surgery. If you need glasses, we will help you choose the right frame and lenses for your needs. If you are a good candidate for contact lenses, we will show you how to insert and remove them, and how to care for them properly.
