Periodic vision exams are an important part of preventative health care
Many eye health problems do not have obvious signs or symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye health issues are important to maintain good eye health. Our examinations give you a complete health check of your eyes including eye pressures, screening visual fields, a microscopic evaluation of the front of the eye, fundus photography and dilated exam of the back of the eye.
Eye Examinations for Children
We recommend annual exams beginning at infancy. Early identification of a child’s vision problem can be crucial because children often are more responsive to treatment when they are diagnosed early. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at six months of age.
Your child’s exam is important to detect the possible presence of these types of eye problems commonly found in young children:
Through regular Eye Exams and thorough education, we are confident that we can help in your child’s future well being!

Contact Lens Initial Fitting
In addition to a comprehensive eye examination, Dr. Gussenhoven will evaluate the health of your corneas and analyze the tear film layer to ensure comfortable lens wear. She will evaluate lens alignment and vision with trial contacts. The training process includes insertion and removal as well as an understanding of cleaning and care of the lenses.
Contact Lens Re-Fittings
A re-fitting is recommended every few years to take advantage of new technology. The Re-fit has a reduced fee to reflect less time needed. Patients will be fitted with new lenses while in the office. Necessary follow up appointments will be made to ensure that you can achieve the best vision and most comfortable fit possible.
Annual Contact Lens Evaluations
An annual contact lens evaluation is necessary to ensure continuing optimal fit and clear vision. Changes in lens powers and renewal of the one-year contact lens prescription are the benefits of this contact lens evaluation in addition to your annual eye examination. There is an annual contact lens evaluation fee.
