What: General Eye Examination that includes an eye health evaluation and basic testing for acuity, refractive error (need for correction or not) and a few simple screenings.
Who: Although we don't offer traditional eye exams at LOVPC we do ask that every patient have one prior to scheduling any of our specialty exams. The reason is we want to be sure every patients' eyes are healthy before they see us. We do not have the medical equipment for doing the full traditional health exam. They are available at our associate facility Dr. Murray, Shin & Associates and though not required, we do recommend you consider having your traditional with us as then we have immediate access to your current primary care information. Also, even our traditional exams are a little more complete than most!
