MEDICAL EXAM

Annual eye examinations are typically recommended for healthy children and adults. The comprehensive eye examination includes vision testing, determination of vision correction needed, and evaluation of ocular health. Vision needs differ with every individual, so your eye doctor will customize your examination for you.

Our eye doctors fit disposable soft contact lenses, rigid gas permeable (RGP, or hard) contact lenses, color contact lenses, and other specialty contact lenses. No two pairs of eyes are the same, so let the Artisan eye doctors help you find the perfect pair of contacts.

Optometrists treat eye conditions from dry eye to glaucoma and everything in between. Artisan Eyecare accepts many popular medical insurance plans and is continuing to add more to better serve our patients.
