Comprehensive Eye Care
Promenade Optometry & LASIK knows that you deserve the best access to the best eye care that is available regardless of where you live; and the most important component of receiving quality eye care is a comprehensive eye exam. Receiving an annual eye exam ensures the health of your eyes and the clarity of your vision no matter what age you are.
It is estimated that nearly 3 million adults are living with glaucoma in America, half of whom are not aware they have it. Getting an eye exam could lead to the detection of vision problems, eye conditions or illnesses, and protect the health of your eyes for years come.

A basic eye exam will inspect your vision for farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and other defects in your vision. This 'spectacle' exam will get you a prescription for corrective lenses. This is the exam patients schedule to determine whether or not they need to wear glasses. Our doctors will check your peripheral vision, take photos of your pupils, and ensure your overal eye health.
in addition to a regular exam
If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, be sure to let us know when you make an appointment. Contacts require a separate exam in order to carefully measure your eyes, determine the best style and fit of lenses. This type of exam will also include trial lenses, fitting, training, and a follow up visit.
