What Is a Comprehensive Eye Exam and Why Are They Important?
Our comprehensive eye exams utilize state-of-the-art tech to closely map your eyes, check for any changes since your last appointment, and pinpoint your precise vision prescription. These high-quality exams enable us to catch eye diseases or other conditions early and develop personalized treatment plans before they have a chance to harm your vision. Big City Optical is also proud to offer virtual eye exams so that you can receive your screening when, where, and how you want it.
Specialty Eye Exams
Pediatric Eye Exams
Pediatric eye exams are similar to our regular comprehensive eye exams, but the equipment we use is specifically designed to monitor children’s eyes and certain age-related conditions. Kids’ eyes are constantly changing, and early intervention of diseases like myopia can often prevent problems that last a lifetime. Annual exams allow their eye doctor to monitor the changes in their eyes and vision and ensure healthy development.
Contact Lens Exams
Contact lenses sit directly on your eyes, as opposed to glasses which sit on the bridge of your nose. Both require a precise prescription, but different screening processes are necessary to ensure a comfortable fit for clear vision. During our contact lens exams, we fully map your eyes’ shape and prescription and show you how to properly care for your contacts, taking extra steps to guarantee that you are fully informed about your front-of-eye health throughout the entire process.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes can affect all aspects of your health and has an outsized effect on your vision. During our diabetic eye exams, we’ll check for common complications, such as diabetic retinopathy, and develop a treatment plan to safeguard your vision.
