Infants need to be checked for a lazy or turned eye which can be corrected only when the child is very young and that is the main reason for the first eye exam at 6 months of age. Routine eye health examinations for healthy young adults should be done every two years with the expectation that you come sooner if you are having any problems.

Vision Skills Required for Learning In order to see and understand the information presented to a child in school, many different vision skills are required. If everything is normal at the first exam, the second exam is at 3 years of age and then yearly until the child is finished school. UV protection can also be found in some contact lenses and a clear UV filter can be applied to any prescription spectacles.


SPECTRUM Optometry - Bringing Vision to Life - retinalimaging

This window into your circulatory system allows the doctor to diagnose and manage conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, retinal detachments, glaucoma and macular degeneration. As light enters the eye, it is focused on the retina and this visual information is then sent directly from the retina to the brain so you can see images.

Bifocal lenses have a line separating the top of the lens which focuses in the distance from the bottom of the lens which focuses at one near point usually 40 cm from your eyes. Once people reach their 40's the eye muscles that used to help change focus gradually lose that ability and it becomes difficult to read when wearing your distance lenses.
