WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR EXAM
- Check in: (5 minutes) When you arrive, you will check in at the reception desk. Our friendly reception team will start your paperwork, collect your identification, and answer any questions you may have.
- Optometric Tech: (15 – 30 minutes) Prior to seeing the doctor, our optometric technician will record your medical and eye history, check your visual acuity with your current eyeglasses or contact lenses, and perform several visual tests to assess your visual skills.
- Exam: (15-45 minutes) Your doctor will review the pre-test data and perform a comprehensive eye exam, including a detailed refraction test to see if your eyeglass prescription has changed. The doctor will review the findings and counsel you on your choices for vision correction. They will assess and review your eye health and discuss any relevant diagnoses and treatments.
- Frame selection: (5-30 minutes) The optician will hear the doctor’s recommendations and help you choose a frame and lens package that will meet your needs. If you have insurance to bill, they will find the best combination of style, performance, and cost to best utilize your benefits.
- Optical Lab: (1 hour) Your eyeglass lenses start as large blanks, and will be edged to fit your frame. Sometimes we have lenses in stock, and sometimes we will need to order lenses. Our in-office edging reduces your waiting time by about a week.
- Dispense: (5-10 minutes) Once your new eyeglasses are complete, an optician will dispense them to you. They will make sure they are adjusted correctly, collect any outstanding payments, and answer any questions. If you are in need of any accessories, they can help you choose products that will support your vision needs.
