Primary Eye Care

An annual exam helps you keep seeing and looking beautiful.

Eye Exams

A complete eye exam involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. The doctor may use a variety of instruments, shine bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses. Each test during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision or eye health.

Digital retinal imaging uses high-resolution imaging systems to take pictures of the inside of your eye. This helps Dr. Harvey assess the health of your retina and helps him to detect and manage such eye and health conditions as glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration. Finding retinal disorders as early as possible is critical to potentially preventing serious disease progression and even vision loss.

Signs that you should have an eye exam:

Your eyes are red, dry, itchy, or you are seeing spots, flashes of light, or floaters.

You have diabetes or another health condition that affects your eyes. Also, if you have a family history of conditions like diabetes or glaucoma you may need exams more often, especially as you move into your 50s and beyond.

You can't remember when you last had an eye exam. If it’s been longer than a year, you’re overdue.

You have difficulty driving at night and seeing street signs in the dark.

You experience eye strain, headaches and/or blurred vision after spending an extended amount of time in front of a computer screen.

You get motion sick, dizzy, or have trouble following a moving target.

You hold books or the newspaper further away from your face and squint or close one eye to read them clearly.

You notice any changes in your vision, especially after an incident of head trauma.
