What to Expect

What to expect at your eye exam

Your trip to the eye doctor is the first step to healthier eyes and clearer vision.

We will begin by asking you some common questions. For example, do you have any complaints about your eyes or vision? How long has it been since your last eye exam?

From there, we will perform the most comprehensive eye exam you’ll get anywhere. At the end of your exam, the doctor will follow up with a consultation and any necessary prescriptions for glasses, contact lenses, or medication.

Your doctor also might recommend specialty eye care services for eye disease management, low vision, or other advanced eye problems.

Do you wear contacts?

If you wear contact lenses, all of your eye and vision care needs will come from our Cornea and Contact Lens Service at the Atwater Eye Care Clinic. This includes your eye exam, as well as contact lens fitting and prescriptions to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and other vision problems.

Most thorough eye exam you will ever receive! Well worth the extra time it may take, given the teaching environment. Love the staff and faculty and have always had excellent services from student optometrists.
