Primary Eye Care


Eye exams are a critical part of your health care.  They allow optometrists to assess your vision and eye health and to identify any changes or problems.  Early detection and treatment is critical to maintain healthy vision and protect the eyes from the effects of potentially blinding diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetes, and high blood pressure.  

Beyond the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of eye disease, we assess muscle coordination and eye focusing in order to determine how efficiently and effectively your visual system is operating.  If a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses is needed, we will provide one that addresses your unique visual needs.

The American Optometric Association and New England College of Optometry (NECO) Center for Eye Care recommend the following schedule for comprehensive eye exams:

Patient Age Risk Free At Risk
Birth to 24 months At 6 months At 6 months or as recommended
