Eye Exams By An Optometrist

Your eye exam should consist of a thorough evaluation of your vision and eye health with consideration of your symptoms, age and medical history and computer use. It will typically include a refraction to determine your need for glasses or contact lenses as well as a screening for eye muscle coordination, dry eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal disease such as those associated with diabetes and high blood pressure.  Currently, we are not offering eye exams


Walk-ins are welcome, but please call for an appointment to make sure that an optician will be available to see you. 

Phone:  (203) 571-0747

Monday-Friday 10:00AM to 5:00PM, Saturday 10:00AM to 2:00 PM


Contact lenses are medical devices regulated by the FDA that can only be fit by a professional and dispensed by a prescription. They must be regarded with the same caution you would use for prescription drugs, which includes prescription expiration dates and follow-up visits with your eye doctor.
The doctor must determine if the fit of the lens is the best possible utilizing special equipment. A lens must fit well enough to center properly but not so tight as to prevent an adequate oxygen supply. Your eyes go through gradual changes in size, shape and physiological requirements (such as oxygen) while wearing contact lenses. These changes can affect the health of the cornea and need to be monitored at least every year. The federal government requires contact lens prescriptions to expire after one year for these reasons.
Most insurance companies require doctors to separate routine eye examination fees from any services performed for contact lenses.  More time and testing is required for a patient who wears contact lenses; therefore, contact lens services as a separate evaluation and fee.


Having a comprehensive eye exam each year is the best way to enjoy good vision. Many eye diseases have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and ocular health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.
Comprehensive eye exams are also an important for maintaining visual comfort especially for computer users. Staring at a computer monitor for hours on end has become a part of the modern workday. However, working adults are not the only ones vulnerable to computer related visual problems. Children who stare at portable video games or who use computers throughout the day at school also can experience eye problems related to computer use. This can include dry eyes, eyestrain, headaches and/or blurred vision. Uncorrected vision problem such as far sightedness and astigmatism, inadequate eye focusing or eye coordination abilities can all contribute to the development of computer vision syndrome.
