The doctors at Cannon EyeCare strive to provide the best eyeglass exams in Seattle. We block off enough time to be thorough so that we can address each patient’s individual vision needs and eye health concerns. Our optometrist will want to hear about any issues you have had with your vision at distance and near (and on computer). Most patients need one eye exam annually, but others have more complex cases. Sometimes we need to manage complex medical conditions that can delay the date of your refraction. Examples are moderate to severe dry eye and cataracts. Typically patients will leave their eyeglass exam with a printed glasses Rx. Often they transition right into their glasses fitting appointment at Market Optical, but there will be no pressure to buy or shop with them.
The eye doctors at Cannon EyeCare will try to learn more about your visual demands at work and otherwise at the start of the visit. Learning more about your unique visual demands will help your optometrist formulate a plan to allow you to see what you need to see at all distances – with prescription glasses and/or contact lenses. Sometimes these discussions will even turn up medical issues such as eyestrain or visual discomfort after spending hours on a computer. Thisd in turn will often lead to extra testing for dry eye disease or discussions about mitigating eyestrain.
Another key goal for your annual comprehensive eye exam is to strive for optimal eye health. Preventative eye care is key to optimal long-term eye health. Eye doctors are much better at helping patients keep the vision they have than at restoring vision once it has been lost to preventable eye disease. That’s why even if your prescription glasses or contacts seem to be working fine, getting your eyes checked annually makes sense.
We routinely screen patients for debilitating eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Whether it is time for your annual eye exam, your current glasses seem a little blurry, or you just know things are a little off, come see us for a comprehensive eye exam. When you get your eyes tested at Cannon EyeCare in Seattle, you will get much more than a prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
Please note that if you are wanting to be fit in contacts, we can typically get the routine glasses exam AND contact lens fit done in one hour. In this case just select the “Eye Exam for Contacts” appointment type when booking your visit. There is no need to book an EyeGlass Exam and an Eye Exam for Contacts on the same day for one person.
