    With our years of experience in diagnosing and treating typical vision disorders such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, presbyopia, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, Dr. Belinda Dobson and her team are equipped and eager to provide you appropriate therapeutic medical eye care. Our practice provides complete eye care for both adults and children. Our comprehensive eye examinations will review your eyes inside and out for any potential eye disorders or diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and appropriate treatment is prescribed if needed, whether it’s medication, lenses, or vision therapy. We are prepared to handle whatever your eye care needs are, and will treat them with the latest in diagnostic equipment and technology.

    There are a few items that will be needed for your eye exam. In addition to your smiling face, please bring the following to your appointment with us: Photo ID, Back-up glasses, Sunglasses, and/or Over-the-Counter Reading glasses, Medications List, and Previous Contact Lens Information, and your Vision AND Medical Insurance Cards. (Note: Our exams address the health and vision of your eyes, so in some cases your medical insurance may be applied to your visit.)

    From the second you walk into Eye Care Center, our main focus is YOU. Throughout your appointment with us, you will never feel rushed or hurried. We ask that you allow approximately two hours for your appointment so you have plenty of time to experience excellence in the exam, as well as take your time selecting the most fashionable eyewear possible.

    Our trained optometric technicians perform the first part of your eye exam. They efficiently gather all pertinent eye health data and vision measurements for Dr. Dobson to evaluate during your exam with her. Your personal technician will also recommend the appropriate yet optional exam upgrades, which include Optomap Retinal Photography and Peripheral Vision Screenings. Both ensure your eyes are performing up to par.

    Next, Dr. Belinda Dobson proceeds with a thorough eye examination. She will assess your eyes’ visual performance, as well as the overall health. She uses only the very best technology available, and has a steadfast commitment to staying ahead of the industry in diagnostic optometry and medical equipment. From a patient’s perspective, this most often ensures a very painless exam that is chocked full of information! Dr. Dobson’s common, favorite patient compliment is hearing, “Wow, this is the best exam I’ve ever had. I had no idea what I’ve been missing.”

    Additionally, during your visit at Eye Care Center, there are opportunities to view interactive educational videos on eye conditions frequently diagnosed. This allows you to be completely informed on your ocular health and visual performance.

    Frequency of your eye exam is also important in prevention and the proper care of your vision and eye health. Eyecare specialists suggest that you have a complete eye exam every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors, and physical condition.

    Children

    Some eyecare experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision issues. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), every child should have an eye exam at 6 months of age, at age 3 and again before school starts. Children who do not have vision issues or risk factors for eye or vision problems should have their eyes checked at least every two years throughout school.

    Children who have existing vision issues or risk factors need to have an eye exam more often. Common risk factors for vision issues include:

    • premature birth
    • developmental delays
    • turned or crossed eyes
    • family history of eye disease
    • history of eye injury
    • other physical illness or disease

    The AOA suggests that children who need to wear glasses or contact lenses should have their eyes checked at least every 12 months or in accordance with their eye doctor’s instructions. Read more about Pediatric Eye Exams.

    Adults

    The AOA suggests that all adults who wear glasses or contact lenses have an annual eye exam. If you don’t generally need vision correction, you should have your eyes examined every two to three years until you reach 40, depending on how quickly your vision changes, and your overall health. Doctors usually recommend examinations more frequently for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, as many diseases can have a negative impact on vision and eye health.

    When over 40, you should have your eyes examined every one or two years to check for commonplace age-related eye problems like cataracts, presbyopia, and macular degeneration. Read more about Vision After 40.

    The risk of eye disease increases with advancing age, so everyone over the age of 60 should have an eye examination yearly.
