Visiting Rivertown Eye Care for  Your  Eye Exam

Learn more about visiting Rivertown Eye Care for your comprehensive eye exam. Our clinic manager, Mariah, shares some insight on what to bring with you and how to get the most out of your appointment with us!

When you arrive, our Patient Care Coordinators will greet you, help get you signed in, and gather any additional information needed before your appointment.



An Optometric Technician will escort you to an exam lane, check your current vision, perform any pre-testing indicated for your visit, and update your health history information and any concerns you have for the Optometrist.

At this time, your Optometrist will see you to review the pre-testing results, perform a comprehensive eye examination to evaluate the health and function of your eyes, and determine your current prescription.

Once the Optometrist has determined your updated prescription, they will work hand-in-hand with our Board-Certified Opticians to style you in eyewear specifically curated to fulfill your personal vision and lifestyle goals. 



There are three to four phases of your Comprehensive Eye Exam at Rivertown Eye Care.


Are eye exams painful?

No, a comprehensive eye exam is a non-invasive examination of the health of your eyes as well as an opportunity to determine your current glasses or contact lens prescription. The Rivertown Team aims to make your visit here as comfortable and smooth as possible!

How often should I get an eye exam?

It is best practice and recommended to get a comprehensive eye exam annually. Even if you do not notice a change in your vision, it is very important to have your eyes examined each year to evaluate and monitor the health of your eyes. Regular eye exams can help identify, diagnose, and provide the opportunity to start treating various eye conditions early. 

Are eye exams covered by my insurance?

Most major medical insurance companies offer comprehensive eye care for their members. Please call your insurance to know the benefits for your particular plan. 

Will my pupils be dilated?

It is highly encouraged for patients to have their eyes dilated during their comprehensive eye exam. This is an important step that allows the Optometrist to better examine the tissue and anatomy inside the eye. The patient does have the option to defer or decline to have their eyes dilated.

Can I Drive Myself Home after my Eye Exam?

Yes, you can! Dilating your eyes will make your pupils (the black center of the eyes) bigger. This can temporarily impact your near vision making it difficult to read small print up close and lets more light into the eye which can cause some temporary light sensitivity. Donning a pair of sunglasses will help, and if you did not bring your own, we have disposable sunglasses you can wear home from your appointment. Most patient’s pupils will return to normal in about 2-3 hours. 

When will I get my results back?

Your optometrist will review your comprehensive eye exam findings with you during your visit and advise on recommended follow-up care for your vision needs.
