Frequently asked questions

Here are a few questions we get asked a lot:

  • How Often Should You Get a Vision Exam?

This shouldn't be soley based on what your insurance covers! The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends all adults who wear corrective lenses (contacts and/or glasses) to visit an optometrist annually. Additionally, adults ages 60 and above should see their eye doctor once a year. Adults between the ages of 18 and 60 who don't wear contacts or glasses should visit the optometrist every two years.

  • Are any of the tests painful?

Other than some slight discomfort from bright lights, you won't experience any pain during the testing. 

  • What Should You Bring to the Exam?

It never hurts to bring your current glasses/contact prescription, that way the doctor can note any changes in your vision. Please fill out the medical history questionnaire (click here to print) prior to your visit, and make sure you bring a list of any of the medications you currently take (with dosages).

  • When will I receive my glasses?

Typically, glasses take up to a week to come in. You will receive a phone call as soon as they are delivered to our office.
