Eye Exams

The eye doctors and staff at Big City Optical are deeply committed to providing quality comprehensive eye exams, available digitally and in-person. During your exam, you will have your vision closely evaluated and prescription updated as needed. Then we will carefully monitor your corneal surface and eyes to identify any potential health concerns. We also adapt our exams to the patient — those with special concerns, like aged eyes or patients with diabetes, will receive extra tests to ensure their vision is clear and eyes are healthy.

Myopia Management

Also known as nearsightedness, myopia is a common eye condition that typically starts in childhood. Eyeglasses can correct vision for those with myopia, but they can’t fix the condition’s root causes. Because every case develops differently based on genetics, lifestyle, and age, our team has plenty of excellent tools to design myopia treatment plans customized to each patient. We have everything that your child needs to experience clear, comfortable vision and a lifetime of reduced eye disease risk.
