Schedule Your

Eye Exam

We'll call you to pick the best date and time.

How It Works

Our eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases and abnormalities such as: Refractive Errors – Age-Related Macular Degeneration also known as MD – Cataracts – Diabetic Retinopathy – Glaucoma – Amblyopia – Strabismus, etc.

Each test during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision or eye health.  An eye exam helps detect eye problems at their earliest stage — when they’re most treatable.


What you can expect

Before the exam

If you’re seeing a new eye doctor or if you’re having your first eye exam, expect questions about your vision history. Your answers help your eye doctor understand your risk of eye disease and vision problems. Be prepared to give specific information, including:

– Are you having any eye problems now?

– Have you had any eye problems in the past?

– Do you wear glasses or contacts now? If so, are you satisfied with them?

– What health problems have you had in recent years?

– Are you taking any medications?

– Do you have any allergies to medications, food or other substances?

– Have you ever had eye surgery?

– Does anyone in your family have eye problems, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma or retinal detachments?

– Do you or does anyone in your family have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or any other health problems that can affect the whole body?

What Our Customers say

If you're near Sarasota, I highly recommend visiting Moon & Company Eyewear! The customer service is fantastic and they have a beautiful selection of top designer eyewear. The owner herself, helped me pick out a beautiful pair of glasses and had prescription lenses made. I could not have been more pleased with how they came out.

Wow! Fatima spends the time finding the right eye glass frame for your face. Best selection of top quality frames. Pair that with the best high definition lens technology and you get a great pair of glasses for your money. I was also impressed with the quick turn around time for a new pair of glasses. She has my future business.
