Eye Exams at I Care Optometry

At Eye Care Optometry, we will perform several eye exams / vision tests to offer you the right diagnose and resolutions for a better eye sight or vision. The multiple testing requires the screening of a patient's eyes for retinal and corneal disorders. After the multiple testing, Dr. Karen Hsueh will review the eye exam test results with the patient. She will explain what prescription is best for the patient.

Everyone should get an eye exam and health examination each year, even if you are still seeing well. Many diseases of the eye such as glaucoma, ocular tumors, and retinal detachment can develop without visual symptoms. Maintain your eyes as you would your physical health or teeth...have them checked annually!
