At Durham Vision Care, we recommend yearly comprehensive eye exams. In addition to checking your vision and determining your glasses prescription, the optometrist will check your binocular vision, and the health of the front and back of your eyes. Visit our Eye Health page.
Contact Lens Exams
With the various types of contact lenses out there and all the confusing numbers that go with them, buying contacts for yourself can be a challenge and is often unsuccessful. This is why the optometrist simplifies this process for you by doing a contact lens fitting. A fitting will determine the best contact lens size, shape, and prescription for you. The optometrist will make sure your eyes stay healthy while wearing contacts and give you proper instruction for the care of your contacts. Note: Contact lens prescriptions are not the same as glasses prescriptions.
LASIK Referrals and Co-management
We provide co-management services with the refractive surgery centre of your choice. The most popular options are TLC, LASIK MD, Herzig, and Bochner. We will do the pre-op evaluation and referral and see you for your post-ops appointments according to your convenience. The optometrist will ensure that your post-surgery results are meeting standards.
Visual Field Testing and OACP, CAF, OFAI Testing
Trying on frames is not fun by yourself! The Durham Vision Care staff will help you select your frames and ensure a proper fit. A poor fitting frame can contribute to headaches and marks/indents on your face and nose. We will take very precise measurements to ensure that the way you see through the machine in the doctor’s chair is the same way you will see through the glasses. This way, you don’t have to worry about anything except how great you look in your new frames!
