Eye Exams

Our optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye. Our optometrists are located in Eau Claire, Menomonie and Rice Lake, where they provide eye exams for patients of all ages.
  • Doctors of Optometry prescribe medications, low vision rehabilitation, vision therapy, spectacle lenses, contact lenses, and perform certain surgical procedures.
  • Optometrists counsel their patients regarding surgical and non-surgical options that meet their visual needs related to their occupations, avocations, and lifestyle.
Routine Eye Care
Routine eye care is important to maintain good vision and help to screen for any vision problems, eye diseases or general health problems before you may even be aware that a problem exists. Some eye diseases have no symptoms. Routine eye care helps to screen for problems so they can be addressed and treated early. Your doctor may use specialized diagnostic equipment as part of a complete exam to provide an evaluation of your vision and the health of your eyes.

As a part of your overall wellness plan, it is usually recommended that all adults schedule a routine eye exam every two years and annually after the age of 60. If you have specific vision or health issues, your doctor may recommend that you maintain a more frequent eye care schedule.

Low Vision Exams
A low vision exam will assess the patient’s level of visual impairment. The optometrist will review the tests and discuss functional problems the patient may be having that impact on their daily routine and lifestyle. The optometrist may then recommend various treatment options and low vision devices to assist with such activities as reading, hobbies, work, home tasks and other interests.
Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are thin, clear disks of plastic that float on the surface of the eye. They are used to correct the same conditions that eyeglasses do: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (blurred vision due to the shape of the cornea) and presbyopia (inability to see close up). Contact lenses are safe when used with care.
