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 Crystal Lake 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.

Debbie was an absolute ROCKSTAR!!! I came in not even knowing what type of glasses I was looking for... and she took her time helping me decide what I was looking for. She gave me good solid advice about the fit and features of the different frames. She made me feel comfortable and not rushed to figure out what I wanted. GIVE THAT WOMAN A RASIE!!!

Wonderful experience here with my young son. Everyone was so friendly, communicative, helpful, and c... omforting. I was blown away with the fact that the doctor and staff focused on the “ whole” child and not just his eyes. The patience, friendly demeanor, and child like conversation with the doctor kept my son engaged and cooperative. As a mother, I was comfortable and appreciative of the doctors approach of not only being a professional but a parent, too. We will be back!

I have been using Coventry Eyecare for about 5 years now. Never have I been disappointed. I had some... issues with the same pair of glasses twice and both times they stepped up and took care of the issue. I recently moved out of Crystal Lake and I live about 25 miles away but will continue to use them for my vision/eyeware needs.

New to area, always a challenge looking for specialists. Saw website, long time local business wit... h great reviews. Was able to schedule online which was responded to immediately and then confirmed. Pre-registered online also. Upon visit, receptionist (Sarah) was phenomenal! Looked up insurance benefits to apply towards visit. Office is clean and equipment up to date. Its been awhile since I've been examined and technician (Michael) was thorough and informative. Dr. Hui was great, answering all questions and explaining things no one has before. I was comfortable in this office. Brett helped in the frames area explaining various products. I will be returning.

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).
