Your Vision. Your Future.

Is your child having a hard time seeing the board in class?

Do you struggle to read fine-print in books and menus?

Regular comprehensive eye exams involve a series of tests that enable your Far West Side eye doctor to check your eye health and vision. This type of eye exam can only be performed by an eye doctor, and shouldn’t be confused with the vision screenings given in schools or other non-professional settings.

Having regular comprehensive eye exams is crucial when it comes to protecting your eyes from sight-threatening diseases, and ensuring that your optical prescription is up-to-date.

A comprehensive eye exam can also reveal signs of a general health condition like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol.

Why Is It Important to Get Your Eyes Tested Regularly?

Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining great vision and eye health for the entire family.

During your eye exam, your eye doctor will check for any refractive errors or visual skill deficiencies that may hinder development or learning, and diagnose, manage, and treat eye diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration that can cause severe vision loss in adults.

Many of these sight-robbing conditions show little to no symptoms until they’ve already caused learning difficulties, significant damage to the eye, and/or irreversible vision loss. Routine eye exams ensure early diagnosis and treatment of these and other conditions.


What to Expect From Your Eye Exam

  • Glasses/contact lens prescription updates

    We'll provide you with an updated prescription so that you can see clearly. Some people require a new prescription every year, whereas others only need a new prescription every 2-3 years.

  • Evaluating your child’s vision for learning

    Conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia, and visual skill deficiencies such as convergence insufficiency can negatively impact your child’s learning.

  • Diagnosis & treatment of eye diseases

    Eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may show no symptoms until it’s too late. The earlier the treatment, the more effective the outcome.

  • Rule out signs of systemic diseases

    Common systemic diseases such as diabetes and stroke can first be detected in the eyes as part of a comprehensive eye exam.

The appointment was quick and efficient and the turnaround time to pick up my glasses was reasonable... . I appreciated that I wasn't pressured into buying new frames when I just wanted to update the lenses in my current frames.

I brought in glasses (from an online store) that had a screw missing. The screw in them was too smal... l and barely touched the threads so it was inevitable. ANGELA helped me right away. She not only fixed them but got a screw fully threaded through the whole piece. There's no chance I'm losing a screw again. Great service!!!

Speechless! All I can say is WOW. Never in my 46 years of wearing glasses have I ever had such an ou... tstanding eye exam/visit. From scheduling to insurance to eyewear/contacts AWESOME! The staff is very nice and customer service is top notch. Brenda helped me and was so professional and awesome. Micheal was the optometrist who saw me and he was phenomenal! He explained everything every step of the way. He asked me my needs and wants and gave me options. He went above and beyond for my vision needs. There was another male at the front desk (I didn’t catch his name) who was very friendly and professional. Brenda knew my insurance benefits so I didn’t have to hassle calling to re-confirm. Not one mistake was made. I will continue to bring all of my business here. EyeTX Culebra, if any of you are reading this, just know you made my day. The exam rooms were clean and well stocked. Lots of glasses to choose from but I ended up getting contacts. I will be back and my family too!

In the last three years I have been to at least three different eyeglass centers. EyeTX is by far th... e best. The eye exam was done perfectly to match my vision problems. The frames were neither fancy nor nerdy. They fit my face perfectly. The staff was very helpful with all the details. There was no pressure on their part to decide on which frames I chose. I would highly recommend EyeTX to my friends and family. You need to create a commercial to advertise your excellent services.

Comprehensive Eye Exams FAQs

Is a comprehensive eye exam the same as a vision screening?

No. Vision screenings like the one performed for children in school or at optical-only stores only check for 20/20 vision. They do not check for the presence of sight-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts. They also do not check for visual skill deficiencies such as problems with visual tracking or processing. Comprehensive eye exams are more thorough and use advanced equipment to evaluate your vision and eye health.

How often should I get an eye exam?

Eye doctors usually recommend that you come in for a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. This ensures that your glasses or contact lens prescription stays up to date and that signs and symptoms of developing eye conditions are caught early before they cause lasting damage.

When should I bring my child in for their first comprehensive eye exam?

A child’s first eye exam should take place at age 6 months. It’s important not to delay eye exams for young infants and children as some early eye problems can affect vision for life. Detecting vision problems early can keep a minor issue from becoming something serious (and more challenging to treat).
