What should I expect during an eye exam?
A yearly eye exam is a painless process. A vision exam is always performed using the eye chart with the big E. It may or may not include dilation of the pupil based on individual patient needs related to their general systemic health. A refraction, which is the determination of your eyeglass prescription, may need to be performed. Contact lens evaluations are also available if desired. Charges are determined based on services provided. Please call if you have questions regarding fees, as insurance plans vary greatly.
