Regular Eyecare: The Secret to Preserving Your Sight
Many people equate the need for an eye examination with replacing their eyeglasses. While it is certainly important to see well, undesirable changes in your eyes can occur, which in their early stages, do not adversely affect vision. Unlike the rest of your body, your eyes rarely hurt when there is something wrong. Do not rely on changes in your vision or broken glasses to remind you of your next appointment. Follow the advice of experts, and have your eyes examined on a regular basis.
Your appointment at Primary EyeCare Associates includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care.

We use state-of-the-art instruments such as digital cameras, computerized visual field testing, and Optical Coherence Tomography to screen for and diagnose these diseases.
