Optometry Services Provided
One of the most common services we offer is that of comprehensive eye and vision exams, which are vital to staying on top of your changing ocular health. During your eye exam, we'll review your medical history, conduct important vision tests, and assess your eye movement and overall eye health. We strongly recommend eye exams for most patients once a year.
While 20/20 vision is great, there is more to optimal visual function and healthy eyes. We offer two service that are unavailable anywhere else in Central Wisconsin. The first is the measurement of macular pigment. This pigment has been called your "internal sunglasses" and it's measurement informs us on your risk for Age-Related Macular Degeneration, blue light exposure, and multiple other visual functions. The second is an advanced eyelid imaging and treatment system to help people with dry, watery, or red eyes. We can more specifically diagnose and treat the root cause of dry eye than anyone else in the area. Stay close to home and get cutting edge care.
We want you and your family to see well and be completely satisfied with your choice of glasses or contact lenses. We also want to help you see well and have comfortable eyes for as long as you can by offering specific preventative recommendations.

What information do we need to schedule an appointment?
At a minimum, we need your Name, Date of Birth, Address, and Phone Number.
If you are paying through almost all insurances, we will also need the Plan Name, ID number, and Group Number and basic demographic information about the person carrying the insurance.
If you have VSP insurance, you likely do not have an insurance card. We can determine your benefits once we know the insured person's information and the last 4 digits of the insured person's social security number. Call for more information.
We also like to know where you had your last eye examination (if applicable) so that we can have your records forwarded to our office.
