Comprehensive eye examinations are an important part of your family’s overall plan for health and wellness. An eye exam by an optometrist includes numerous tests to assess your eye health as well as your vision. Regular, preventive eye examinations are recommended for people of all ages to help to ensure a lifetime of good vision.

Information about Your Visit
As part of your eye exam, Dr. Willis will discuss any vision problems that you have been experiencing. She will ask about your health, activities, medications and family history of eye problems and medications. At the end of your exam, Dr. Willis will recommend solutions and answer all of your questions.
If you wear glasses, sunglasses and/or contact lenses, please bring all of them to your exam.
Children’s Eye Exams
We want to make the eye exam a happy and stress-free experience for kids. We have considered the eye exam from a child’s point of view and aim to improve the experience. Children enjoy sitting in our child-size exam chair. Dr. Willis and staff will put them at ease with instruments, tests and eye charts appropriate to their age, from infant to teen. With the 3D pictures, colorful lights and animated cartoons, we love to turn kid’s frowns upside-down!
Adult Eye Exams age 18-40
Adult Eye Exams age 40 plus
If you are 60 or over, a number of eye diseases may develop that can change your vision permanently. With early detection and treatment you are more likely to retain good vision. If you are over the age of 65 you should have an eye exam annually.
If you have a prescription for glasses, we encourage you to look at our optical boutique for lenses and frames. We have a comprehensive collection of eyewear and lenses that fit your lifestyle and your visual needs. Our staff are trained to ensure the prescription is filled exactly as the doctor intended so your vision is as good as it can be.
