When faced with so many incredible eyewear options, many people find it hard to make a final choice. Our opticians are here to help! We’ll make sure that your glasses fit comfortably, flatter your look, and provide crisp vision.

It’s not a problem, our eye doctor will perform a detailed contact lens exam and fitting, as well as follow-up care for all contact lens wearers.
Advanced Medical Eye Care
An eye exam is much more than just updating your prescription for glasses or contact lenses, and that is why our optometrists will spend time with each patient to fully assess your eye health and address important preventative measures that you can take to ensure great vision and comfort.
Our optometrists are passionate about eyecare, eye health and the comfort of your eyes. We have invested in the latest technology to assess the full health of your eyes and we speak to each patient during their eye exam to understand issues that may affect your long term eye health or comfort.
Scheduling a yearly eye exam is essential to making sure that your vision is corrected properly with glasses or contacts. An annual eye exam is also important as we age to prevent complications, vision loss, and reduced vision functioning from diseases such as diabetes, macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia and much more.
Many patients don't realize that the discomfort that they experience after using a computer or when they wake up in the morning can be prevented and treated. We educate patients during their comprehensive eye exam on dry eye prevention, blue light protection, safe night driving, UV protection and much more.
Our optometrists love seeing children for their eye exam because they believe that proactive vision care for kids is essential to their success in the classroom and preventing future vision issues. Our eye doctors make sure that each child not only enjoys the experience of their pediatric eye exam, but that they also understand the importance of protecting their eyes from UV, blue light, and eye injuries.
When a child visits for an eye exam with our optometrists, we will assess much more than just their need for glasses, we will also discuss important concepts with the parent in order to ensure a lifetime of great vision.
For children that are nearsighted, our optometrists will discuss the options for myopia management. When a child has progressive myopia their eyes change requiring ever stronger prescriptions. This not only affects their classroom performance, but also significantly increases the potential for vision loss due to cataracts, glaucoma and retinal detachment as they age.
Our optometrists provide emergency eye care for most types of eye emergencies. If you are experiencing an eye emergency please call our office and we will provide you with the guidance. Common eye emergencies that we treat and assess include:
- Pink eye/eye infections
- Scratches and shallow cuts to the eye
- Something stuck in the eye
- Black eyes, swollen eyes and trauma to the eye
- Chemical spills to the eye
- Styes or bumps in the eye
- Severe irritation or dryness in the eye
- Severe eye allergies
We equip our Algonquin office with the latest optometric technology to ensure that you receive ultra-precise diagnoses and treatments. Our eye doctors will perform thorough eye exams and vision testing, focusing on the health of your inner eye tissues and entire visual system. Regular eye exams are the only way to detect ocular disease when it first appears.
If you have an eye disease, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, we’ll monitor and manage it to preserve your lasting, clear vision. We stay current with the fast pace of medical progress, so that you benefit from the most progressive treatments available. No matter what you need for your eyes, our sharp focus is on you!
