Your comprehensive eye exam at O’Fallon Family Eyecare may require from a half an hour to an hour. We will evaluate both your vision and the health of your eyes.
Before you meet with the eye doctor, an optometric technician will welcome you and perform an initial assessment of your vision with a series of preliminary tests. Upon reviewing your patient information, you may be asked several questions concerning your medical and vision history.
It is important for everyone to get an eye exam on a regular basis regardless of age, how well you see or how healthy you are. Even if you think you see well, you could have an eye condition that could threaten your sight in the future and not have any symptoms now.
We have a high tech approach to our eye exams which makes them accurate, efficient and educational. We include digital retinal photography with your exam at no extra charge because we feel your care is better when you can see and understand your eye health and how conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure can affect your vision.
An informed patient is an empowered patient. Dr. Hegyi and his staff will explain the tests throughout your eye exam as well as the findings. Together you and the eye doctor will discuss and select the treatment options that are best for you.
Pediatric Eye Exams
We love to see children for their yearly eye exams. If you child attends the O’Fallon, Wentzville and St. Charles school district, he or she should start getting a regular eye exam starting at age 4. Your eye doctor will customize the exam in order to make the testing more appropriate for the different ways a child uses their eyes compared to an adult.
Of course, no good deed goes unnoticed. We are happy to allow each child to select a small toy/gift from our toy box for doing a great job during their exam. We’ve even been known to let the siblings make a selection even if they haven’t gotten their exam that day.
