Vision Examinations & Medical Vision Examinations

Family Eye Care Center offers two types of eye exams, WELLVision Eye Examinations and Medical Eye Examinations. The type of examination each patient receives will depend on the individual’s unique vision requirements and/or medical needs.

WELLVision Eye Examination

This examination is designed to provide eye care and screen for, diagnose, and treat a variety of common vision problems. A WELLVision Eye Examination is a comprehensive, examination of several aspects of visual acuity, as well as other factors and considerations related to your eyesight. This exam may be used to determine that no vision concerns are present. In other cases, Dr. Craig may discover that a vision correction is indicated for one or more vision problems, which may include:

Medical Eye Examination

This examination is designed to diagnose and treat eye disease, eye injury, and medical conditions known to affect the eyes, as well as provide eye care needed due to a medical diagnosis or emergency. Typically, patients will be scheduled for a Medical Eye Examination when diagnosed with these conditions, or when presenting with a chief complaint (symptom) associated with an eye-related medical concerns, disease, illness, injury, or infection. These may include:

The Importance of a Thorough Eye Examination

Optometric Physician

Professional in-person eye exams are essential throughout life. They can help detect eye problems and many systemic diseases in their earliest stages – when they can be managed most effectively. At Family Eye Care Center, we take the time to thoroughly examine each patient’s eyes. As an optometric physician, Dr. Craig addresses numerous vision and eye-related medical conditions. He applies clinical knowledge and expertise gained through managing his practice for more than 31 years to provide the quality, comprehensive eye and vision care you need.

Benefits of a Comprehensive Eye Examination

Protecting Your Vision

Complete eye exams offer many benefits for your vision and overall well-being. By establishing a baseline, we can better identify future eye and vision problems that may develop on the surface of the eye, as well as the back and inside of the eye. Eye tests can help determine your risk of developing certain types of eye disease and some systemic medical issues – and may help identify their presence faster. For patients diagnosed with vision deficits or eye disease, a comprehensive eye exam may also be used to help guide treatment and help you preserve your vision. In addition, a comprehensive eye exam is critical for investigating any eye or vision-related symptoms you may be experiencing.
