Your Comprehensive Examination

We know how important it is to be thorough when it concerns your health. Our comprehensive exam is designed to uncover hidden signs of sight-threatening eye disorders and diseases that cannot be found by a simple vision screening. Your eyes can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions.

Dr. Mailhot will review your general health and medical history, including prescription medications. Then he will evaluate the way your eye muscles and pupils work together as a team. This tells the doctor if the nerves and muscles controlling your eyes are working properly or if they require further evaluation. Specialized testing utilizes automated, doctor-controlled instruments and patient-directed methods to determine your best lens prescription.

Visual field testing measures your range of vision, not only off to the sides, but above and below as well. Proper health testing involves using state of the art instruments to view your eyes internally. These painless tests allow us to detect the eye signs of glaucoma, cataracts, hypertension, and even diabetes.

After a thorough eye health examination by Dr. Mailhot, all patients, parents or guardians will be provided with a detailed explanation of the examination’s findings, their significance, options and possible treatment. We will then take the time to answer your questions thoroughly.

Healthy Contact Lens Experience

Rapid advancements in contact lens technology allow more people than ever to enjoy the freedom of contact lens wear. The experts at Family Eye Health & Contact Lens Center specialize in contact lenses, assuring you of comprehensive care and contact lens comfort that you are certain to enjoy.

If you have been told in the past that you could’t wear contact lenses because of astigmatism or bifocals, discuss it with us. We will fit you with bifocal or astigmatic contact lenses that work, otherwise we will buy the lenses back from you! You will also enjoy the opportunity to change your eye color with our wide selection of natural looking tinted contact lenses. Remember, professional expertise is crucial for safe and successful contact lens wear.

Ask about our in office no obligation contact lens trial. Remember, when you purchase contacts, you are not purchasing just contacts, you are receiving the competency and experience of the doctor who has prescribed and provided them for you.
