Frequently Asked Questions
Are your doctors accepting new patients?
Yes, all of our doctors are accepting new patients! They see children up to age 18 for routine eye exams, as well as children and adults for binocular vision evaluations. Not sure what kind of appointment you need? A routine exam will check on eye health, clearness of sight, and the need for glasses or contacts. A binocular vision evaluation will also examine eye movements, eye teaming, and focusing ability. This is the appropriate exam for someone who has had a brain injury, is struggling with school, or who has already had a primary eye exam but would like more in-depth testing.
I'm interested in doing vision therapy. What's my first step?
Whether you heard about vision therapy from one of our patients, or you have done some research on your own, we look forward to starting this journey with you! The first step is to have a binocular vision evaluation performed by one of our doctors. Even if you or your child has already had a routine eye exam, this evaluation allows our doctors to do in-depth testing to ensure that vision therapy is an appropriate treatment plan, as well as giving them the opportunity to get to know you and understand your visual goals. To schedule an evaluation, please call our office at (314) 628-9100.
