We believe that everyone deserves to experience life with healthy eyes and clear sight, and that’s why we take a deeper, more comprehensive look at our patients’ whole eye health. Our Galesburg optometrists will use advanced technology to test your eyes for signs of eye disease. For many eye conditions, the earlier a condition is detected and treated, the better the outcomes. We’re here to ensure that you receive the best results possible.

Health Exams

During a comprehensive eye health exam, we’ll perform the tests and screenings you need to ensure that your eyes are healthy. We’ll first evaluate your eyes for disease and make sure that they’re functioning as they’re supposed to. If we come across any need for concern, we’ll provide treatment for your condition or refer you out to a local specialist if the case is especially severe or complex. After that, we’ll test your vision and update your prescription. If you wear eyewear, we’ll make sure your glasses or contacts help you see clearly.
