How to Choose an Optometrist

If you are in need of an eye examination, you can rely on the help of an optometrist. An optometrist specializes in vision care and can help ensure that your eyesight is healthy. Unlike an ophthalmologist, who specializes in surgically treating eye conditions, an optometrist can help examine your eyes and discuss any necessary treatments with you. Choosing the right optometrist may seem overwhelming, but our team at Trumansburg Optical is here to help make the decision making process easier. 

How Do I Know if I Should See an Optometrist?

If you are in need of emergency eye care, you should contact our office right away for an examination. For adults interested in receiving a comprehensive eye exam, we recommend visiting either annually or every other year, depending on an individual’s needs. Individuals of all ages can benefit from an eye exam, and you can even have your infant’s eyes checked before their first birthday. Regular eye exams are important to maintain good eye health and ensure that no issues are occurring. In addition to examining the overall health of your eye, an optometrist can prescribe glasses and contacts. An optometrist will work with your specific needs to help you feel confident in your health.

What Should I Look For In An Optometrist?

Your health is important to you, and the right optometrist will care just as much about your health as you do. An optometrist should be trustworthy and someone you can rely on. By scheduling an appointment at Trumansburg Optical, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be meeting with an optometrist that checks all of the boxes. Dr. Henninger is a highly trained professional who is passionate about helping individuals on their health journey and ensures that his patients are cared for during their visits. He takes the time to understand his patient’s needs and works to address any concerns they may have. If you’re looking for the right optometrist, Dr. Henninger is ready to meet you today. 

What If I’m Afraid to Visit An Optometrist?

When choosing the right optometrist, it’s important that they make you feel comfortable during your visit. Receiving an eye exam can be a rewarding experience, as you will gain knowledge about your health and the next steps that are right for you. Dr. Henninger ensures his patients that routine eye exams are nothing to fear, and his expertise and compassion can help them feel at ease. The right optometrist prioritizes your health, happiness, and overall well-being. Visiting Dr. Henninger will help eliminate any fears you may have about visiting an optometrist.
