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 Oakdale 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.

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).

This place has superb customer service!! We don’t live in the area and we’re on vacation here. ... My wife forgot her contacts back home. Oakdale Optical Center gave her a free set of trial lenses just to help us out after we had our eye doctor back home send in her prescription. Outstanding service! Thank you!

Excellent experience at this clinic. Dr. Thiem is a true expert and so are everyone on the staff. My... only advice… expand the eyeglass frame selection more. But even that was good. Excellence all around at this clinic.

Dr. Lauermann is all around aweosme!!! I was absolutely thrilled with the newest piece of technology... and equipment that is available so they did not have to dilate my eyes or my eye exam. It was well worth the $45 I had to pay. That made my yearly eye exam much more tolerable.

First of all, I arrived at my appointment on the wrong day. I was actually two days early, and the n... ice young lady at the front desk was able to work me in to see someone the same day. I saw Dr Taylor Lauermann. Dr Lauermann was great. He was very personable and professional. I appreciated that during the eye exam he checked both eyes, to see whether or not the oil glands were clogged. Next, he explained the physiology of my eyes, as well as gave me informational on the best over the counter products to use to lessen the severity of my dry eye symptoms. Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not mention the optometric assistance that helped me with picking out new glasses. Her personality was electrifying.
