Common Tests

 eye doctor with scopeWhile there are some basic eye vision tests common to most eye exams, children and young adults have different vision testing needs than say, a healthy middle-aged adult, or an adult with a history of eye problems.

Vision testing equipment ranges from simple tools like the “Big E” eye chart (Snellen Chart) and a hand-held penlight and eye cover, to more complex devices that swap lenses in front of your eyes or use special lamps to view the eye’s structure. A comprehensive eye exam includes vision testing, and vision testing equipment that is common to almost all eye exams, but is often tailored to your age, your specific need, or your individual symptoms. The following are some common tests you may be given during a routine eye exam.

Dear Patients and Community

Local authorities have ordered a Stay Home order for most businesses in Houston/Harris county. We are currently operating from 10am-12pm for URGENT eye care visits (red eyes, infections, eye injuries, etc...), but no routine/wellness exams are being performed at this time. Furthermore, were are providing "Curbside" pickup of eyeglasses and contact lenses during those hours.

If contact lens wearers currently have less than three (3) months supply remaining, we highly recommend that they call to place an order now. Our doctors will approve up to an additional six (6) months supply. Furthermore, we will waive contact lenses shipping charges and ship directly to a home address at no charge.

With the day to day changes surrounding COVID19, we do not know how much longer our office will be open to the public. Due to this situation, we ask that any remaining glasses or contact lens supplies be picked up as soon as possible.

We thank you for your understanding and loyalty during this difficult time. Wishing you and you health and looking forward to serving you again soon.
