Exams for the Entire Family

At Bettner Vision, we provide comprehensive exams for the whole family. Our specialized team will ensure all the eyes in your family are happy and healthy.

Early detection of vision problems is key to your overall health and functional well-being. The American Optometric Association recommends the following exam schedule:

Your child’s first optometric eye exam should occur between 6 and 12 months of age. However, if you notice any vision issues, such as crossed eyes, the exam should be conducted earlier.

Your child’s second optometric exam should take place between the ages of three and five. At this time, eye health, binocular vision, focus, and eye alignment will be assessed using several child-friendly tests.

Upon entering school, and up to the age of 17, children should be tested on an annual basis. Myopia often forms at this age and should be diagnosed as soon as possible.

The optometrists at Bettner Vision recommend that adults over 18 have a complete eye exam every year to test for eye disease, track any existing conditions, and keep on top of any changes in vision that you may be experiencing.

As we enter our senior years, our eyes become more susceptible to a wider variety of eye conditions, and we often require more frequent appointments as a result. At Bettner Vision, we recommend annual eye exams, so aging eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, are caught early and managed appropriately.

Patient Interview & Evaluation

At Bettner Vision, you are our top priority. As such, we take the time to get to know you to provide a better patient experience.

We’ll discuss any concerns you may have with your eyes, your vision history, and overall health, as well as your family’s medical history. This gives a complete and holistic overview of your health and wellness so we can accurately and respectfully safeguard your vision.

Vision Testing

Our optometrists will perform an array of visual function tests to assess the patient’s clarity of vision. Some tests we perform include:

  • A color blindness test
  • A visual field test to assess your overall field of vision
  • An ocular motility test to evaluate eye movement
  • A stereopsis test to assess depth perception
  • The Snellen Chart test to determine the sharpness of your vision
  • A refraction test to examine refractive errors and prescription strength

Eye Health & Early Disease Detection

All eye exams at Bettner Vision include tests to ensure your eyes are healthy and free of any serious and threatening eye diseases, including glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.

However, in addition to ocular diseases, eye exams can detect signs of systemic diseases that have yet to display symptoms. Things like diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases, and cancer are often first detected via an eye exam. This is because our eyes are unique; they are the only area of the body that has an unobstructed external view of our blood vessels.

Our Specialty Services

At Bettner Vision, our keratoconus and scleral lens institute specializes in diagnosing and treating patients with keratoconus – a progressive eye disorder that results in the thinning of the cornea.

Keratoconus & Scleral Lens Institute

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that specializes in eye anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye.

Ophthalmology

Vision therapy, sometimes known as orthoptics, is akin to physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It is a non-surgical, customizable set of exercises and activities that aim to resolve symptoms that interfere with visual abilities, motor skills, and brain function.

Pediatric & Binocular Vision Therapy

Our eyes and brain are inseparably linked. Impulses continuously travelling back and forth via the optic nerve ultimately result in what we see and how we see it.
