The doctors at Cannon EyeCare strive to provide the best eye exam 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).
We will try to learn more about your visual demands at work, etc. Learning more about your unique visual demands will help our eye doctors 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 hours of computer work. This 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.
This exam type does not include a contact lens fitting. If you plan to update your prescription for contacts or try them for the first time, please select the ‘Eye Exam for Contacts’ appointment type for your visit.
