The Process of Getting Eyeglasses

We have a simple process for you to follow if you are in need of prescription glasses or any glasses. This process is as outlined below:

  • First, you will need to fill out a health form history form so our optometrist has an overview of your health in general. You will be asked about medical conditions, medications you may be taking, and the activities you take part in on a daily basis in case you may require special care or specific eyewear.
  • You will then proceed to a pre-exam room where we will review your health with you, discus any special needs you may have, and give you advice on the way forward. For instance, what kind of eyewear will suit you best. 
  • Your eyesight will then be tested to find your prescription as well as your corneal curvatures.
  • You may then be tested for glaucoma and be given a visual field test if your other results show you are at risk for certain eye diseases.
  • A cover test, refraction test, and dilation test may also be done if our optometrist finds anything wrong with your eyes, after which your results are reviewed. If the only issue you have is needing a new prescription, you can go ahead to pick out new eyeglass frames.

Our team will work with you to find the best frame for your face shape, the best type for your lifestyle, and the best overall frames for your budget. After this, you can discuss special coating options such as photo-chrome and anti-glare for the lenses depending on if you are out in bright sunshine or sit in front of a computer monitor for long periods of time.
