We are an optometry office that can provide you and your Mooresville family members with quality eye care.
The practice of optometry typically involves performing vision tests and eye exams, prescribing corrective lenses, providing medical care for certain eye diseases, and checking for eye abnormalities. At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we are an optometry office that can provide you and your Mooresville, North Carolina family members with quality eye care.
We realize that advances in optometry are developing at a rapid rate. In order to provide you with the best care possible, we strive to stay on top of these developments and have made it a priority to use innovative technology and equipment at our office. For instance, we use a device known as the Icare system, which allows us to screen your eyes for glaucoma without dispersing an uncomfortable “puff of air” into your eye and only takes a few seconds to complete.
We also recognize that optometry can have a positive effect on your life. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to come in and see us if you are struggling with your vision or if you have concerns about the health of our eyes. Our optometrist, Dr. Chuck Monson, will provide you with effective solutions. Additionally, our friendly staff members will make sure that the time you spend at our office is comfortable and beneficial. You may also be lucky enough to meet Chopper, our resident vision care dog.
What to Expect at Your Next Eye Exam
Regular eye exams are an important part of maintaining your vision and the health of your eyes. If it has been a while since your last eye appointment, or if you’re new to our location, here’s what you can expect the next time you come into our office:
- Get ready to talk—We want to know all about your vision, current prescriptions, problems you’re dealing with, and anything else related to your vision. This will help us know how best to help you at your current appointment and moving forward.
- E-P-T-Q-Z—Next up will be your visual acuity test to measure the sharpness of your vision. We’ll ask you to read from the chart on the other side of the room to measure how well you can see at a distance.
- Other exams—Up next will be several other exams to check the health of your eyes. For instance, we’ll conduct a retinoscopy test to estimate your prescription, a stereopsis test to determine your depth perception, and a visual field test to measure your peripheral vision. We’ll also test for glaucoma, so we can find it in its early stages if it is a problem.
If you need an updated prescription, feel free to explore our optical boutique to find new frames. If you’d rather go with contacts, we’ll go over your options with you and even give you a sample pair to try before you commit to a different kind of lens.
At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we look forward to seeing you and your family members in our office now and in the future. To schedule a comprehensive adult or pediatric eye exam, please reach out to us today.
