Comprehensive Care

Vail Ranch Vision Center knows that you deserve the best access to the best eye care that is available regardless of where you live; and the most important component of receiving quality eye care is a comprehensive eye exam. Receiving an annual eye exam ensures the health of your eyes and the clarity of your vision no matter what age you are. It is estimated that nearly 3 million adults are living with glaucoma in America, half of whom are not aware they have it. Getting an eye exam could lead to the detection of vision problems, eye conditions or illnesses, and protect the health of your eyes for years come.

Glasses

A basic eye exam will inspect your vision for farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and other defects in your vision. A 'spectacle' exam may result in a prescription for corrective lenses. This is the exam patients schedule to determine whether or not they need to wear glasses, in which case our opticians will assist you in choosing lenses, coatings, sunglasses, and the perfect frame size and shape.

Contact Lenses

If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, be sure to let us know when you make an appointment for an eye exam. Contacts require a separate exam in order to carefully measure your eyes and determine the best style and fit for lenses. This type of exam will also include trial lenses, a follow up visit, and our opticians will teach you how to wear and care for you new lenses,.
