Comprehensive Eye Exams
Diabetes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are all preventable, but common causes of blindness. Regularly having a comprehensive eye exam is the best way to help maintain healthy eyes and vision. Dr. Taylor takes special care to explain any eye health concerns you may have, so you leave with a better understanding of your eyes and prescription.
Dr. Taylor will perform many tests on your eyes during the exam process including: color vision, depth perception, eye alignment, eye movement (which is essential for children to ensure success in school), assessing the need for glasses or contacts, pressure check for glaucoma, and a health assessment of both the front and back of your eyes.

See to Learn®
See to Learn™ is a complimentary visual assessment for three-year-old children.
What is SEE TO LEARN®
SEE TO LEARN® is an innovative, three-step preventive health program designed to ensure that children entering kindergarten can see to learn and to educate parents and teachers about the warning signs of vision problems in all school-age children.
- Step 1: Ongoing education to alert parents and educators about the signs of vision problems in children of any age.
- Step 2: A free vision assessment for your three-year-old by a participating Eye Care Council optometrist. This is designed to detect vision conditions that require correction at an early age. Although vision problems among the very young are generally uncommon, some serious conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (turned eye), require care before age 5 to avoid permanent loss of vision.
- Step 3: A professional vision examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist paid for by you, the parent before or during your child’s first year of school. This is an important investment that will help ensure that vision problems do not affect your child’s ability to learn and do well in school.
