  • One of our professional optical will use the latest technology and equipment to perform these tests and provide you with an accurate prescription for eyewear if needed.
  • We will then process your prescription and create your new lenses right in our office without needing to send them to a separate lab.
  • We have the equipment and staff on hand to create your new glasses within an hour. This means you can walk out of the store with your new eyewear the same day without having to wait days or weeks for them to be ready.

When to Update Your Vision Prescription

Whether you’re new to glasses and contact lenses or you’re a seasoned veteran, it’s normal for your vision to change over time. Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to have your eyes checked at least once a year to ensure that your prescription is up to date and your eye health is in good condition.

If you’re experiencing any of the signs listed here, book an eye exam with us, and we can address any potential vision problems.

Blurred Vision

If you’re experiencing blurry vision, it may be time to get your eyes checked. This could be a sign that your current prescription is no longer accurate or that you have a new vision problem that needs to be addressed.


Frequent headaches can be a sign of eyestrain, which can be caused by an incorrect prescription. If you’re experiencing headaches regularly, it’s a good idea to get your eyes checked to see if your prescription needs to be updated.

Eye Strain

If you’re experiencing eye strain, such as tired or achy eyes, it could be a sign that your current prescription is no longer effective. This can be especially noticeable if you spend a lot of time reading, working on a computer, or doing other activities that require focus.
