What to Expect When You Visit

​​​​Exceptional Eye Care Focused on You


Exceptional Eye Care is so much more than a quick prescription change to your glasses or a yearly renewal of your contact lenses. Your eyes are one of the most important organs in your body and you only get the one set for life. Dr. Herkert does do prescription glasses and contact lenses, but he also performs special testing and exams that can detect signs of disease or abnormalities early, while they are still easy to treat.

Call us to set up an appointment for exceptional eye care.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

A comprehensive eye exam includes testing that help us determine the health of your eye. We test the pressure of your eye, your peripheral vision, the health of your retina and determine your eye glass prescription. We detect and can treat glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Some of the we may do during your exam is digital retinal photography, a visual field, OCT screening and retinal thickness analysis. For more information, see the Services Article to the right.
