      Hi Derek, we perform exams for all ages. While we do concentrate on different aspects of the eyes based on the age of the patient, the exams in general are similar. The reason for that is because our exams are very comprehensive. While some doctors only check certain things for an age group, and others for another age group, we would check everything regardless of the age group so that we don’t miss out on early detection of certain eye conditions.

  • Thank you for the information regarding the importance of regular eye examinations, and how it can help prevent dangerous diseases for the eyes. I found it interesting when you said that eye examinations can help identify and fix various vision problems. By fixing any vision problems the patient may be having, it reduces their chance of having impairment when doing various activities.
