Vision Specialists Advanced Testing

Modern Eye Care.
Digital Testing


Before you even see the doctor, you experience 3 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:  No more scary puff of air directly into your eyes. With the iCare® Tonometer, we can determine your risk for glaucoma with no puff of air.

Retinal Scan:  With scanning laser technology, we scan and capture 82% of your retina in one image, eliminating the need for most patients 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 next steps.


At Vision Specialists 156th & West Maple, we take this one step further, with the Vision Experience Summary for each patient.


Your Exam Summary - We want you to leave our office knowing your eyes 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.
