At Trumansburg Optical, you can expect a comprehensive eye exam and all the services that you need to see and look your best. Dr. Henninger has been in the area since 1992, serving as your neighborhood eye doctor and as a one-stop full-service optometric practice. We always begin your visit with a thorough eye exam. The health of your eyes is just as important as the health of the rest of your body. Unfortunately, conditions such as diabetes can negatively affect your eyes, and we can help watch for any issues. Beyond your eye health, we will test for your prescription and assist you with contact lens decisions or fitting of glasses. Yearly eye exams help us watch your vision changes and adjust your prescription as well.
Dr. Henninger recommends that children have their first eye exam before the age of one, again at three years old and then before entering school. School-age children should have a yearly exam. Children can be unaware of issues and a thorough exam can catch some things early as well as ensure that they are prepared and able to learn their best. Teens and adults up to the age of forty-five should focus on an exam every other year. If you are a contact lens wearer, have other health issues or are older than forty-five, an annual exam is recommended.
At your appointment, you should expect to have an extensive health review and test of your prescription. The doctor will determine if you are near- or far-sighted and what your exact best prescription is to see as clear as possible. Depending on the patient, we may use dilating eye drops. This process allows us to really see inside your eyes and better determine if there are any abnormalities. Dilating your eyes can be uncomfortable and last for hours, so we do recommend you have someone on hand to drive you home.
We strive to focus on providing everything you need for your glasses right in-house. After your exam, browse our selection of styles and try many on. We carry such names as Jones New York, Tommy Hilfiger, Ray-Ban, and Ralph Lauren. We can help you pick out your best style. Our team will go over lens selection, so you have a final product that is sturdy and stylish! If you still love your current frames, we can just update your lenses in-house. We have the necessary innovative equipment to edge lenses and send you out the door with a new pair. We can also create your perfect prescription sunglasses to help you drive and be outdoors.
We welcome your questions and comments through our online contact form where you can also make an appointment to see our optometrist.
