No matter how welcoming the staff, small children may feel shy or find vision testing machines and gadgets a little intimidating. Luckily, parents can make visits much less daunting by following a few of these suggestions.
The complexity of your eyes and the challenges they face from age and environment require a high level of expertise, training and technology. That’s the difference between VisionQuest and chain or big box eye care centers. To help diagnose and treat your eye conditions, we use the latest technology.

We work with your vision insurer to submit claims. We help you understand your insurance coverage and try to answer questions about your benefits. Many vision plans are designed to cover the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment and additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.

ABOUT YOUR VIRTUAL CHECK-IN
You will need to check-in via text once you arrive for the appointment. (Our doors will remain locked. Only patients with scheduled appointments will be allowed in the office.)
We will ask a series of questions concerning symptoms or exposure to COVID-19. We also will verify your information, medical Insurance and vision benefits.
We will notify you via text when the doctor's assistant is ready to begin your appointment. You will be taken back to the pretest or an exam room immediately.
We are limiting looking at eyewear before appointments at this time.
OUR COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

You will be asked other triage questions for everyone's protection.
Assistants and doctors will wear gloves and other personal protection equipment.
We will sanitize every room between every patient.
About Your Exam
A comprehensive eye exam may use a variety of optometry equipment to view the eye surface and internal structures.
TYPES OF EYE TESTS
Eye charts, eye covers, slit lamps, tonometry devices, refraction equipment, and corneal topography may be used to determine the current level of your vision and what type of correction may be needed to help you see clearly.
Other equipment is used to see inside the eye, to detect problems with the eye structures. Your eye doctor may also do tests for color detection, eye tracking and how well your eyes team together for seeing images.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your optometrist will take a medical history to learn about health issues that may affect your eyes. In addition, the eye doctor will ask about tasks you normally perform and your general eye health.
You will then be asked to read an eye chart, covering one and then the other of your eyes to determine each eye’s visual acuity.
The pupils will be checked, and you will be asked to look into a slit lamp or other device to check the condition of your eyes.
The eye doctor may dilate your pupils in order to the internal structures of the eye, to check for signs of eye diseases.
Additional tests may also be done to measure the curve of your cornea for contact lenses. Your optometrist will also do tests to measure the pressure in your eyes.
