Vision Specialists Advanced Testing

Modern Eye Care.
Digital Testing


Before you even see the doctor, you experience three quick, high-definition scans of your prescription and ocular health. This allows your exam to be complete and efficient.

Glasses Prescription Scan: 

Through high-definition scans, your glasses prescription is more detailed than ever before with little to no "which is better, 1 or 2" questioning.

No Puff Eye Pressure: 

There is no more need for the startling puff of air directly into your eyes that you may have experienced in the past. With the iCare® Tonometer, we can determine your risk for glaucoma with no puff of air.

Retinal Scan:

With scanning laser technology, we are able to scan and capture 82% of your retina in one image, eliminating the need for most patients' eyes to be dilated.

Simple & Precise.
The Eye Exam


At Vision Specialists, we believe that we provide the best eye exams in the world!  Through advanced technology, your eye exam can be more comprehensive and more efficient than ever before.  The best part of any eye exam should be the end when the doctor carefully educates you and clearly lays out the next steps.

At Vision Specialists of Council Bluffs, we take this one step further, with the Vision Experience Summary for each patient.

Your Exam Summary

We want you to leave our office in Council Bluffs knowing your vision inside and out, empowered with a complete understanding of your eyes.  Therefore, every patient at Vision Specialists leaves with a concise, one-page summary of the doctor's findings and next steps.
