During a comprehensive eye exam, our Optometrists do much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses. We will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. That’s why annual routine eye exams are important, even if you don’t feel your eyeglass prescription has changed or feel you have any eye problems. Routine eye exams can also detect certain disease like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and many more.

This is a comprehensive eye exam that determines the parameters and curvature measurements of your eyes, the fit of the contact lenses, and the health of your cornea. It’s a more complicated exam and may often require at least one follow-up visit. Our contact lens exam fee includes all necessary follow-up visits AND the glasses prescription.
The most commonly asked question regarding contact lens exam is:
Why Does a Contact Lens Prescription Expire?
I need to buy more lenses, but my contact lens prescription has expired. My eyes feel fine, and my contacts are working well. I don’t think I should have to pay for a new prescription if my vision hasn’t changed. Why do contact lens prescriptions expire?
It’s true — when your contact lens prescription expires, you’ll have to make an appointment with your optometrist in order to obtain an updated one. You won’t be able to buy more contact lenses until you do, even if you buy them online. Contact lens prescriptions expire for the same reasons that medical prescriptions expire. Any time you are using a medical product, you should follow up with your doctor at least once per year to identify possible complications. The FDA considers contact lenses medical devices. In 2004, a law was passed that set the expiration date of contact lens prescriptions at one year, or the minimum required by state law, whichever is greater.
For your convenience, we offer discount packages if you buy year supplies of contact lenses from us. When combined with exclusive manufacturer rebates, we may even beat competitors or online prices! In addition, we can ship the lenses to you at no cost with any one-year supply purchase. Our exam + contact lens packages can save you money and time!
Even if you don’t wear glasses or contact lens, you might still encounter eye infections from bacteria, fungi or viruses. Some eye infections can be serious if not treated properly and promptly. At Roseville Optometry, we can help common eye infections with eye drop prescriptions, then follow-up visits to ensure the proper treatments. For more serious matters, our doctors will give you the proper referral for more extensive treatments.
We specialize in custom prescription lenses for all types of frames: sunglasses, oversized, and rimless. Do you have that favorite pair of frames or sunglasses that you would like to put your prescription in? Been told that your sunglasses are too "curved" for a prescription? We will be glad to offer recommendations and solutions.
