Comprehensive Eye Exams:
Assessment of the health and functioning of your eyes and determination of whether glasses are needed. Testing includes visual acuity, eye muscle coordination, pupil function, color vision, spectacle refraction (glasses prescription), intra-ocular pressure (glaucoma test), lens clarity (cataract check), and retinal health with or without pupillary dilation. Regular eye exams ensure proper visual functioning and good ocular health. We recommend that children who wear glasses, contact lens wearers and patients over 60 be examined yearly and adults be examined every 1-2 years, depending on the patient’s medical history or family history of eye disease.

Contact Lens Evaluation and Fitting:
The contact lens evaluation is an extended service which involves taking eye measurements, evaluating tear film and sufficient oxygen flow to your eyes and then selecting the proper contact lenses based on your individual visual needs. Your contact lenses will be evaluated to make sure they are fitting properly and providing good vision. The contact lens fitting may be completed in one visit or several visits depending on the complexity of the prescription.
Low Vision Care:
Patients who have suffered a decrease in vision due to eye diseases such as macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy may benefit from a low vision evaluation. Dr. Longo Williams will perform a thorough trial frame refraction to make sure the glasses prescription provides the best vision possible, then she will demonstrate low vision devices such as magnifying lenses and telescopic lenses to assist in activities such as reading the newspaper or watching television.
