Importance of Regular Eye Exams

If you want to experience crystal-clear vision and eye health for a lifetime, we can help. Regular eye exams are essential to keep your eyes and vision in tip-top shape. Factors like aging, illness, or accidents can sometimes impact eye health and vision, so staying up-to-date with your prescription is crucial. By staying on top of your prescription, you can guarantee that your glasses or contact lenses always give you the perfect correction for your vision.

When you come in for a comprehensive eye exam, one of our eye doctors will thoroughly assess your visual acuity (how clear your vision is without glasses or contacts), eye muscle function, and overall eye health to make sure your eyes are healthy. We’ll also recommend the best eyeglass and contact lenses prescriptions to meet your vision and lifestyle needs.

DMV Eye Exams

At our Augusta location, we provide DMV eye exams to ensure that individuals meet the necessary visual standards for obtaining or renewing a driver's license.

Children's Eye Exams

Most children do not know they are having vision difficulties. Early detection of vision problems and intervention are key for maintaining clear vision and addressing eye conditions that can make learning difficult. They go beyond regular vision screenings and delve into your child’s eyesight complexities.

Keep in mind that good vision in children goes beyond clear eyesight. It also refers to the proper development of visual skills such as eye coordination, depth perception, and eye teaming, which are essential for learning and playing sports.

Our comprehensive eye exams test the vision and visual system of your child which is so important for their academic, athletic and life success.

Your child may have poor visual skills if they have strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eye), which our optometrists can treat effectively. Symptoms include struggling with reading, writing, or completing schoolwork, experiencing frequent headaches or eye strain, difficulty concentrating, or losing their place while reading.
