Regularly scheduled eye exams are an essential component of your overall health care strategy. Periodic eye exams allow your optometrist to identify and track subtle changes in your eye health and vision. Even small changes could be indicators of eye diseases or other vision problems.
To help you safeguard your vision and maintain good eye health, Dorchester Optometry offers a variety of tailored eye exams to suit your unique situation. We also work hard to keep wait times for eye exams as short as possible, so you and your family can get the care you need, when you need it.

Adult & Senior Eye Exams
Adults should have their eyes examined at least once every two years, and seniors should visit their optometrist annually. However, depending on your unique needs and whether or not you’re predisposed to developing eye diseases, your optometrist may suggest you visit more frequently.

Children’s Eye Exams
Your child’s development relies on clear vision and healthy eyes. Clear vision helps your child learn, both inside and outside the classroom. If your child develops vision problems, it’s critical that they’re identified and treated as soon as possible.

Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes is a systemic condition that affects our health in many ways and can compromise our vision and eye health. Individuals with diabetes have unique health and eye care needs. As such, individuals with diabetes should visit their optometrist at least once per year, even if they’re not currently experiencing any other health problems, and their blood sugar is well controlled.

Contact Lens Exams & Fittings
Everyone’s eyes are unique, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to contact lenses. To ensure you get the right style of contacts for your eyes, Dorchester Optometry offers contact lens exams and fittings.
Improperly fitted contact lenses can cause discomfort and corneal damage.
