EYE EXAMINATIONS / VISION TESTING

Comprehensive Eye Exams

At Savage Eye Clinic, we provide thorough eye exams for all ages using the latest technology in vision testing. We will take the time to listen to your needs and explain all of your options as our friendly doctors evaluate different aspects of your vision and eye health.

Pediatric Vision Exams

Annual Eye Exams for infants and young children are as important as annual check-ups with your pediatrician. You may be surprised to know that a child’s first exam should happen around 6 months.

During infancy, a child’s vision is constantly changing. At 6 months, visual acuity sharpens and it is important to know that their eyes are developing normally. Healthy vision is essential to a child’s ability to learn as well as to play sports and other activities.

Advanced Diagnostic Procedures

In some cases, special testing is needed to diagnose or monitor an eye problem that you may be experiencing.

LATEST IN OPTICAL LENS TECHNOLOGY

We are seeing rapid advancements in ophthalmic lens technology, which means better vision, comfort, convenience and protection for you. Here is a simple way to understand your eyeglass lenses:

LENS DESIGN

Your eyeglass lenses will either be single vision (one prescription only) or multifocal (bifocals, trifocals and progressive lenses). Progressive (no line) lenses offer a gradually changing prescription in one seamless lens so that your vision is clear at any distance.

LENS MATERIALS

Eyeglass lenses used to be made of glass and while that is still an option, new age plastics have much more to offer. Today, new plastic materials have been developed to produce extremely scratch resistant lenses that are thinner, safer and lighter weight than glass lenses. These plastic lens materials include CR-39 plastic, high index plastic, polycarbonate and new hybrid materials like Trivex eyeglass lenses. The best lens material for you is based in part on your prescription.

LENS TREATMENTS

There are many surface treatments available for optical lenses that can make your glasses the best ever. Anti-reflective lenses are a very popular choice because they make you see better and look better by reducing glare, and anti-reflective lenses are now better than ever! Many other options are available such as UV protection, anti-scratch coatings and polished edges for optical lenses.

LENS TINTING

We offer many different tint options in optical lenses from no tint at all to dark gray or brown sunglass shades. One of the most exciting tint options is Transitions®, which is the optical lens that darkens and lightens based on available sunlight. This product is now in its seventh generation of technology and it is truly remarkable because it offers visual comfort, convenience of not having to switch glasses and the protection against UV rays for your eyes.
