Your Total Eye Health Care Provider
Did you know eye exams can detect other healthcare issues, such as hypertension and diabetes?
Eye health can provide insight into other concerns that need to be addressed.
Preventative care with yearly exams is the best way to maintain not your vision and broader health. Our modern medical facility and equipment focus on your eye health and can detect many eye diseases and conditions.
Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that can blur your central vision. It happens when aging causes damage to the macula — the part of the eye that controls sharp, straight-ahead vision.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety for those who have undergone surgery surgery. Rivertown Eye Care offers after care services to make sure our patients are healing and cared for correctly.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye that occurs when tears aren't able to provide adequate moisture.
Risk of acquiring this condition increases with age. The eye may become dry, red, and inflamed. The main symptoms are discomfort and sensitivity to light.
Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your eye's cornea or lens. With astigmatism your vision is blurry at all distances. It is a common condition that is generally treatable.

What can I Expect during the exam?
There are three phases of your Comprehensive Eye Exam at Rivertown Eye Care.
1) Check-in: When you arrive, our Patient Care Coordinators will greet you, help get you signed in, and gather any additional information needed before your appointment.
2) Pre-Testing: an Optometric Technician will bring 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.
3) Eye Exam: 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.
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.
What happens if my doctor sees something out of the ordinary?
Your annual comprehensive eye exam is an excellent opportunity to rule-out, diagnose, and follow the progression of existing eye conditions. If your Optometrist sees something out of the ordinary, they will bring it to your attention, answer any questions you may have, and either recommend treatment options or refer you to a specialist if needed.
Are tests other than eye exams and vision tests covered by insurance?
Rivertown Eye Care accepts most insurance plans. Be sure to verify coverage with your insurance company for the specific service you're seeking before your visit.
