Adult and Senior Eye Exams
Did you know that most pressing eye conditions do not initially present with any symptoms? And when symptoms do turn up, it’s often in more advanced stages? It takes a trained eye to check for these subtle changes.
Riverside EyeCare recommends people aged 19-64 have eye exams at least once every two years. If you have a preexisting condition such as diabetes, your optometrist may recommend more frequent visits. For seniors aged 65+, we recommend annual eye exams.
Pediatric Eye Exams
When should I bring my child in for their first exam? This is a common question we receive at Riverside EyeCare. We recommend starting eye exams at six months of age. Our Optometrist is specialized in recognizing visual disorders from a young age.
Approximately 80% of learning is visual. Visual issues are commonly misdiagnosed as behavioral problems. Most children with a vision problem believe what they are seeing is normal, because it’s how they’ve seen their whole life and believe it’s how everyone sees the world as well. Parents are often unaware of their child’s troubles with their vision. One in four children have troubles with vision.
We recommended bringing your child in every year for annual eye exams.
Contact Lens Exams
Contact lenses are a medical device meaning they need to be carefully selected for your eye. Each eye has its own shape and we fit the lenses to you. It is important to keep in mind that your glasses prescription may differ from your contact lens prescription.
Are you a first time wearer? Riverside EyeCare provides in-person training to teach you how to care for the lenses, how to insert and remove the lenses on your own and we educate you on proper wear times, how frequently you change out the lenses and when you shouldn’t wear them.
Don’t like the lenses you’re in? We can easily refit your lenses to your needs.
