Vision Exams

Vision Exams for the Whole Family

At Family Vision Development Center, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist.

By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

General Exams

All patients receive a comprehensive vision exam, which includes a complete examination and discussion of the patient's health history and symptoms to aid in diagnosis, a visual acuity test, a general eye examination to assess the health of the eye's internal structures and proper function, and an eye health screening. It is recommended that patients schedule a comprehensive eye exam annually for early diagnosis of eye conditions and to update corrective lens prescriptions.

Pediatric Exams

The vision screening your child may receive at school is not an adequate evaluation of their visual development.  A comprehensive pediatric eye exam includes testing and evaluation of the following visual skills:
Visual Acuity (both near and at a distance) *Focusing Skills * Eye Tracking & Fixation Skills * Depth Perception * Eye Teaming Skills * Color Vision * Visual Memory and Form Discrimination * Visual Motor Integration

In the absence of complete testing, common pediatric vision problems can go undetected, and, in some cases, can be misdiagnosed as a learning disability or behavioral problem.

Some common pediatric visual conditions which are not detected through the standard 20/20 eye chart test alone:

  • Amblyopia (or Lazy Eye)
  • Accommodated (Focusing) Disorder
  • Strabismus
  • Convergence Insufficiency

Contact Lens Exams

At Family Vision Development Center, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs, and corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided in our office. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Martin will determine what level of vision correction you require and will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle.

Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form, and need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
