Our eye doctors will review your results and work with you to issue you an accurate vision prescription. We want you to be on your way to better vision soon.

What to Expect During Our In-Office Remote Eye Exams

At your local EyeCare Associates eye center, an on-site technician will take you to the pretesting area, where they will record your current eye prescription. They will also record your corneal measurements, eye pressure test results, images and videos of your eyes, and additional testing if necessary.

You will see and speak with a licensed optometrist as if they were in the office. Instead of joining you in person, your EyeCare Associates eye doctor will join you via high-definition video conference. The eye health exam will be performed and completed in less than 30 minutes, and an on-site staff member will be with you during your remote eye exam.
