Protect & Preserve Your Vision
Regular eye exams play a significant role in maintaining good ocular health and vision. At Eyes on Main, we work hard to ensure your eye exams are as comfortable as possible. We will take the time to have a lengthy discussion with you about your health goals and answer any questions.

When you visit us for an eye exam, we will be sure to give you all the necessary information, so you feel informed and aware. The entire appointment shouldn’t take longer than 90 minutes, but we will let you know if we need any additional tests or treatments.

When Do I Need an Eye Exam?
From birth, comprehensive eye examinations are vital in monitoring your eye health and detecting early signs of disease. At Eyes on Main, we recommend seeing your optometrist at least once a year to ensure your eyes are cared for, and your health is prioritized.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that adults get a complete eye examination at age 40. However, we want to stress that visiting your eye doctor regularly far before age 40 is essential to maintaining eye health and vision.
After age 40, early signs of disease or changes in your vision can begin to appear. Having a complete eye exam can give us the chance to detect warning signs that you may be developing an eye disease.
If You’re Over 65
After age 65, your risk for developing age-related degenerative diseases increases. Types of degenerative eye conditions include:
Keeping up with regular eye exams allows any early signs of disease to be detected and diagnosed at a point where treatment will be most effective. At Eyes on Main, your eye health is our priority.
