Eye Examinations

A complete eye examination is about more than finding out whether or not you need glasses or contact lenses!

At Generations Optometry we look at your eyes from front to back, inside and outside. We analyze the ability of your eyes to work together (binocular vision), and assess your ocular health by looking for and diagnosing a wide range of eye diseases including macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataract development. Conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension) can have adverse effects on your ocular health, and at times are initially discovered during an eye examination by an Optometrist. Our care includes working with other specialists including Ophthalmologists to deliver the best outcome for your vision.

Our Optometrists are committed to creating a customized product or treatment plan that’s right for you. We’ll explain the specific eyewear and contact lens options for your task, whether it be competitive pistol shooting or seeing the fine lines on a specialized measuring device at work, golfing or better vision on your computer screen.

Are you a musician? Many of our patients find that their everyday eyewear is not ideal when playing a musical instrument. Common problems include difficulty seeing notes on a page, or parts of an instrument, especially in darker venues, and trouble focusing while going back and forth between the music, the instrument, the gear and the audience! Due to Dr. Lu’s lifetime involvement with music, she has custom crafted solutions for many musicians, both professional and amateurs. Music glasses or contact lenses can be a great asset to improving comfort and clarity both during practice sessions, or performances. Feel free to ask about this service.
