Your Eye Exam: Fast, Easy & Affordable

Regular eye exams are one of the best ways to prevent serious illnesses and detect changes in your vision health. In fact, ophthalmologists and optometrists recommend comprehensive eye exams every 1-2 years depending on your age. At Stanton Optical, our mission is to make eye care easy, and that includes providing a fast and reliable eye exam that is affordable with or without insurance.

How to Schedule Your Eye Exam

Eye exams at Stanton Optical are provided by our independent licensed eye doctors. These include a through assessment of your visual health and your prescription. Moreover, we offer same-day exams for eyeglasses and contacts.

Here’s What You’ll Get for Your Eye Exam

A complete eye exam from our independent eye doctors includes a thorough evaluation of your vision health, a new prescription, and a retinal scan (something most optical retailers charge more for). We offer eye exams for both eyeglasses and contact lenses.

1. Full patient case history

When you create your account online, you can easily fill out your Optical and Medical History in the convenience of your home, before your exam, to speed up your office visit. Creating your account takes 2 minutes and submitting your information just 10 minutes. Click here to create or log in to My Account.

2. Pre-Screening

The doctor’s technician will administer five pre-tests to provide a more comprehensive assessment of your eye health. These screenings can detect early signs of serious eye conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts.

The following tests are included in your eye exam:

  • Autorefraction

  • Keratometry

  • Tonometry

  • Retinal Evaluation

  • Visual Fields

Our technician will then escort you to a private, sanitized exam room for an Acuities and Refraction Exam to test for your prescription. This exam can be performed virtually through our telehealth technology. 

3. Slit Lamp evaluation

Administered by the technician as required, this assessment will evaluate the health of the front of the eye, where cataracts develop.

4. Receive prescription

The Ophthalmologist (MD) or Optometrist reviews all your test results and develops your customized eye care treatment plan and prescription.

Stanton Optical is committed to your personal vision needs. We look forward to your visit!
