We recommend a routine vision exam every year. School age children and those over 65 years old should have their vision evaluated annually, as the eyes frequently change during these times. Contact lens wearers and those with certain medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure should also see us every year. Many serious eye diseases have no early symptoms and require early treatment to prevent loss of vision. By scheduling an annual screening, you give your eyes the best chance of staying healthy and clear.

We encourage every patient to write down questions that they want to ask the doctor or staff before their visit. We take your health very seriously, and believe the better informed you are the greater the benefit to your vision and health.

There can be multiple causes of unusual visual phenomena. While some are harmless, others need immediate attention and you should call your eye doctor right away to be sure a serious problem, such as retinal detachment, is not occurring. If no other symptoms are present, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with your eye doctor during regular business hours. If additional symptoms are present such as nausea, confusion, headache or fever, call 911 or have someone drive you to your local emergency room for evaluation.

If you have a condition that you consider to be an emergency, we want to see you and will make every attempt to work you into our schedule as soon as possible. If we are unavailable or immediate attention is needed, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room for support.
