Bayview North Optometry provides comprehensive eye examinations for patients of all ages. Eye exams are important not only for checking a person’s vision for the purpose of prescribing eyeglasses and/or contact lenses, but also for assessing the overall health of the eyes (detecting and diagnosing eye disease to provide appropriate treatment when necessary). We use modern, up-to-date equipment and techniques to do so.
