Your Next Eye Exam

What can I expect during a typical eye exam?
Eye exams are available by Dr. Nicholas Rutkowski located next to or near Sears Optical. During the exam you will be tested for visual acuity and general eye health. The doctor will check for signs of cataracts, glaucoma and other eye diseases. An examination can also reveal other health problems, including diabetes or high blood pressure.

In children, a routine eye exam consists of tests for near and distance vision; peripheral vision; eye/hand coordination; the ability to use both eyes together; and the ability of the eyes to move smoothly across a page and shift quickly and accurately from one object to another - all critical for a child learning to read.
What Does An Eye Exam Cost?
If you have a question in regards to the cost of your eye exam, the price of contact lens fitting or what your insurance will cover please call us at (847) 330-0015. We will be happy to help answer your questions.
Do I need an eye exam to wear contacts?
Yes, before you purchase contacts you must have your eyes examined and a contact lens fitting completed by Dr. Nicholas Rutkowski. Some people think an eyeglass prescription can be used for contacts but they are actually different. If you already had an eye exam with a contact lens fitting and your prescription for contacts is valid, call our office to order your contacts today - (847) 330-0015.

Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
How does my vision change with age?
How does my vision change with age?
1
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
Who can wear contact lenses?
Who can wear contact lenses?
1
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.
What conditions can an optometrist treat?

Optometrists are trained to detect and diagnose all eye problems and eye diseases. Schedule an eye exam today if you are experiencing any problems with your eyes or your vision.

What is the difference between an eye exam and a vision screening?
What is the difference between an eye exam and a vision screening?
1
A comprehensive eye exam is administered by an optometrist and can detect not only vision problems but problems with eye health and general health as well. A vision screening is typically performed by a general medical practitioner such as a pediatrician or a nurse. While a vision screening can help identify vision issues, it can miss many important issues that a comprehensive eye exam can identify. This is why everyone is encouraged to get annual eye exams. Schedule your eye exam today.
How is vision measured?
How is vision measured?
1
Vision is measured through a series of tests performed at an eye exam. Visual acuity is commonly measured by a series of two numbers, the first number representing the distance from which a person can clearly see something, and the second number representing the distance from which a person with normal vision can see that same thing. This measurement is typically obtained during an eye exam by having a person read from an eye chart with various sizes of letters.
Can eye exams detect other health issues?
Can eye exams detect other health issues?
1
Eye exams can detect eye health issues such as glaucoma and cataracts. Eye exams can also detect general health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. This is why eye exams are an important part of health maintenance for everyone regardless of age or vision correction needs. Schedule your annual eye exam today.
