EYE EXAMINATION


If you are having any concerns about the clarity of your vision, or just need a routine eye examination, we will be happy to help.


We may use a variety of techniques to assess your ocular health, screen for any pathology and measure any refractive error you may have.


For most people, it is recommended that you are seen every 2 years for an eye exam, though some people require more frequent appointments.
