Schedule Eye Exam

Your Vision. Your Future.

Is your child having a hard time seeing the board in class?

Do you struggle to read fine-print in books and menus?

Regular comprehensive eye exams involve a series of tests that enable your St. Augustine eye doctor to check your eye health and vision. This type of eye exam can only be performed by an eye doctor, and shouldn’t be confused with the vision screenings given in schools or other non-professional settings.

Having regular comprehensive eye exams is crucial when it comes to protecting your eyes from sight-threatening diseases, and ensuring that your optical prescription is up-to-date.

A comprehensive eye exam can also reveal signs of a general health condition like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol.

Why Is It Important to Get Your Eyes Tested Regularly?

Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining great vision and eye health for the entire family.

During your eye exam, your eye doctor will check for any refractive errors or visual skill deficiencies that may hinder development or learning, and diagnose, manage, and treat eye diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration that can cause severe vision loss in adults.

Many of these sight-robbing conditions show little to no symptoms until they’ve already caused learning difficulties, significant damage to the eye, and/or irreversible vision loss. Routine eye exams ensure early diagnosis and treatment of these and other conditions.


What to Expect From Your Eye Exam

  • Glasses/contact lens prescription updates

    We'll provide you with an updated prescription so that you can see clearly. Some people require a new prescription every year, whereas others only need a new prescription every 2-3 years.

  • Evaluating your child’s vision for learning

    Conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia, and visual skill deficiencies such as convergence insufficiency can negatively impact your child’s learning.

  • Diagnosis & treatment of eye diseases

    Eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may show no symptoms until it’s too late. The earlier the treatment, the more effective the outcome.

  • Rule out signs of systemic diseases

    Common systemic diseases such as diabetes and stroke can first be detected in the eyes as part of a comprehensive eye exam.

Comprehensive Eye Exams FAQs

Is a comprehensive eye exam the same as a vision screening?

No. Vision screenings like the one performed for children in school or at optical-only stores only check for 20/20 vision. They do not check for the presence of sight-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts. They also do not check for visual skill deficiencies such as problems with visual tracking or processing. Comprehensive eye exams are more thorough and use advanced equipment to evaluate your vision and eye health.

How often should I get an eye exam?

Eye doctors usually recommend that you come in for a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. This ensures that your glasses or contact lens prescription stays up to date and that signs and symptoms of developing eye conditions are caught early before they cause lasting damage.

When should I bring my child in for their first comprehensive eye exam?

A child’s first eye exam should take place at age 6 months. It’s important not to delay eye exams for young infants and children as some early eye problems can affect vision for life. Detecting vision problems early can keep a minor issue from becoming something serious (and more challenging to treat).

While vacationing in beautiful St. Augustine my glasses got stepped on. They were badly bent and I ... was not sure they could even be straightened. Mr. Matt Lee took the challenge, even though the glasses were not made by Anastasia Eye Associates/The Vision Center. He repaired them and sent me on my way, and would not accept payment for his time or service. I am so very happy to recommend them to anyone and everyone! Thanks, Mr. Lee!

Visited Anastasia Eye Associates on A1A this morning to replace the pads on the nose piece on my gla... sses. Optical Manager Matt took great care of me. Replaced the pads at No Charge (wow) and also noticed one the screws on my lens was loose and fixed that too. That was pretty awesome. We r visiting from Wisconsin and he sure helped us out. Highly recommend them!!! Thanks Matt!!! Sue Rheingans

I broke my eyeglasses and I only have the one pair. I found out that my optometrist does not do rep... airs and wouldn't even fit me a new frame. I called Anastsia Eye Associates and the receptionist told me to come in so they could do an assessment. Matt Lee the Optician took over 30 minutes finding a frame to match my lenses as he could not repair my broken frames. He then put my current lenses in the new frames and made sure they fit me properly. I was so impressed! They are now my Optometrist and I have an appointment later this month for a full exam. Thank you so much!
