Eye Exam Tips

Your eye exam with our Optometrist may take up to 40 minutes. The Doctor may dilate your pupils so your eyes may be sensitive for a period of time after the exam. Bring sunglasses with you to help with the light sensitivity. If you are driving, you may need to wait for a short period so keep this in mind or bring a driver.
