Frequently Asked Questions

What is an ophthalmologist?

Ophthalmologists are medical doctors (M.D. or D.O.) who specialize in eye care. Ophthalmologists are capable of providing a full spectrum of optical, medical and surgical evaluations and treatments of eye disease or visual problems. If a person requires medical or surgical care for an eye disease or an eye injury, they will seek the assistance of an ophthalmologist.

When should I schedule my first eye exam?

Even for people with no vision complaints, a comprehensive eye exam is an important part of maintaining good health. It is recommended adults have an eye exam every two years. People over age 60 should have their eyes examined annually.

When should I schedule my child's first eye exam?

Eye exams are also important for children, as they can’t always tell you how they see. School age children should have screening eye tests at school or at their doctor’s office annually. If these indicate a problem, a timely and thorough eye exam with one of our ophthalmologists or optometrists is recommended.
