Your Next Eye Exam Visit

Your Yearly Eye Exam*

Annual eye exams are a recommended cornerstone for ensuring the health of your eyes. In addition to checking for changes in your vision and updating your prescription, your doctor* will also look at your overall eye health, internally and externally. Prevention and early detection are keys to maintaining healthy eyes, as some eye health issues have no immediate symptoms but can still cause damage if left untreated. That’s why regular check-ups are critical.

Wellness starts with being well-informed

During your eye exam, the Independent Doctor of Optometry* at or next to Pearle Vision may create a personalized Eye Health and Wellness Report to summarize your visit. In addition to noting any problems, conditions or diseases found during your eye exam, your Independent Doctor of Optometry may provide you with a report outlining the next steps you should take. It’s a valuable tool some Independent Doctors of Optometry* offer to help you maintain and improve your eye health and vision.
