What Is Refraction & Why Doesn't My Health Insuran...
A refraction is a test done by your eye doctor to determine if glasses will make you see better....

Our exams go beyond basic vision checks. We passionately feel that the health of the eye is important too. Utilizing state of the art technology - such as OCT (retinal/optic nerve imaging), perimetry (visual field testing), and retinal photos - we evaluate for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, eye allergy, and countless other eye diseases that can interfere with good vision. As a result, you can expect your eye exam to last at least 1 hour. We schedule 30 minutes of time for preliminary testing that might need to be done and then 30 minutes of time with the doctor. It may be a longer visit than you are used to, but it is a thorough visit and allows time for the doctor to discuss findings as well as management and treatment options. 

***Please be aware – because of the 30minutes we allot for preliminary testing, you will typically not see the doctor until 30 minutes after your appointment time.

Because of the time we take with patients, being sure to answer any and all questions they may have, occasionally we get a little behind schedule – we sincerely apologize for this, as we know your time is valuable too. Be assured we will make every effort possible when we are aware of the delay to let you know when we are behind and work with you if your schedule does not allow for the extra time. We appreciate your understanding and know our doctors and staff will not compromise their time with you either.
