How Important are Your Eyes?
Vision is possibly our most important sense. Approximately 80% of what we learn throughout our lifetime is vision related. Our eyes enable us to read, drive, play sports, shop, and so many other every-day activities. Yet we often take our eyes for granted.
Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At The Contact Lens Centers, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our optometrists provide the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one. We care about you, and your eyes.

Dr. Wegman Answers Your Eyecare Questions
At what age should I start bringing my child to the eye doctor?
I usually recommend around age 5. We definitely want to evaluate them before they start school so we can prevent vision limitations from affecting them in the classroom. At this age most kids know their ABC’s and can perform the tests necessary to conduct a thorough eye exam. An exam before age 5 many times is inconclusive if they can not identify letters or if we can not hold their attention. However, please bring your child in sooner if you suspect a medical problem (white pupil is very serious) or large vision problem (obvious eye turn).
