A comprehensive eye exam includes vision testing, and vision testing equipment that is common to almost all eye exams, but is often tailored to your age, your specific need, or your individual symptoms.

As part of our COVID-19 protocol we are now requiring our patients to undergo an Optomap Retinal exam in lieu of dilation to evaluate the inside lining of the eye. This procedure is being performed to lessen the time spent in our office. There is an additional fee of $35.00 for this test which is often not covered by insurance plans as it is considered a health screening. However, it can be billed to a medical insurance plan if there is a retinal disease diagnosis. Please speak to our staff for more information.
