We understand the importance of healthy vision as do you. Many of our patients choose to return to Associated Eye Care each year for a comprehensive eye exam in order to maintain their vision wellness and get updated prescriptions for glasses and/or contact lenses. Our providers will still discuss other vision care options that pertain to you during the exam, such as LASIK eye surgery or treatments/therapies for common issues such as dry eye. If you need an updated glasses or contact lens prescription, we are happy to provide that to you also. Our optical shops are open during Well Vision clinics.
Well Vision Clinics are designed for patients between 12 – 60 years of age. Existing patients over 60 may be eligible for this type of clinic also. Some patients who have cataract surgery only need vision wellness exams after the procedure. We recommend discussing this with your Associated Eye Care provider during your next visit. Patients who are under 12 years of age typically need more specialized care through our pediatric clinics and providers. These types of clinics are better suited for a child’s needs.
The following is a list of services offered in Well Vision clinics:
Well Vision clinics are for new/existing patients who can benefit from the shorter exams. If a patients needs are more complex, they can always return to their primary eye care provider for care.
There are cases where patients need more time or additional testing due to their visual needs. On rare occasions, we ask patients to return during regular clinic hours. A good example of this is dry eye as it is a common issue. Patients with mild dry eye issues can be seen in a Well Vision clinic. In some cases however, the patient presents with severe dry eye that needs additional attention. In these cases, we recommend the patient return to our specialized Dry Eye Clinic, where we can better diagnose and treat the more complex issue.
Yes. Associated Eye Care takes the majority of eye care insurances and is designed to accommodate those who need this type of exam.
Absolutely. This is a perfect clinic for you. Well Vision was designed with the lifestyles and vision needs of our LASIK patients in mind.
