If you’re due for an eye exam, call his office or schedule an appointment online today.
Dr. Latter provides comprehensive eye exams that measure your visual acuity and the health of your eyes. You can expect several tests, which may include:
Even if you don’t need to wear corrective lenses right now, your vision can change. Even if you’ve never had to wear glasses, as you get older your intraocular lens stiffens and causes a condition called presbyopia, which is the clinical term for the vision distortion that makes reading glasses necessary.
Also, many eye diseases don’t cause symptoms in their early stages. Having routine screenings every 12-24 months can ensure that if you do develop an eye condition, Dr. Latter can provide the treatment you need to protect your eye health and your vision.
Dr. Latter provides eye exams for children as young as 3. Your child should have their first eye exam around the age of 3 (unless you or your pediatrician have noted an earlier problem) and then again before they start school.
Signs that your child needs corrective lenses include changes in their academic performance or behavior at school. They might complain of headaches, or you may see them holding books or screens close to their face.
If you or your little one need an eye exam, you can count on expert assessment with Dr. Latter. Call his office or schedule an appointment online today.
