Our experienced optometrists can provide you with thorough eye evaluations, determine if you need corrective lenses and your exact prescription strength, fit you with the appropriate specialty eyewear, and help you pick out the most flattering pair of glasses for your face shape and skin tone.
Our new patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam.

AdaptDx® Dark Adaptometer
The AdaptDx [adapt-dee-ex] aids in the detection and management of AMD. It measures the time it takes for your vision to adjust to the dark. This is called dark adaptation. The simple test takes less than 10 minutes. You’ll look into the device in a darkened room and press a button every time you see a flashing light. If the AdaptDx test indicates signs of early AMD, you and your doctor have valuable time to develop a plan to delay disease progression.
What is RI?
The RI™ stands for Rod Intercept™ and it is a measure of an eye’s dark adaptation function. Specifically, it is the number of minutes it takes your vision to adjust from light to darkness. When you take the AdaptDx test, the device calculates your RI number and provides your doctor with critical information to help determine your AMD status.
Is the AdaptDx® test covered by insurance?
If there is a medical diagnosis related to AMD or you are experiencing trouble seeing or driving at night, we may be able to bill the test to your insurance provider. If not, the AdaptDx test may require a modest out-of-pocket expense.
What should I expect during the test?

Diopsys® visual electrophysiology vision tests are painless, non-invasive, and provide us with comprehensive information on the function of your vision. The electroretinography (ERG) and visual evoked potential (VEP) test results assist us in better planning your treatment (if any) and monitoring your visual function.
To perform the test, we ask that your face be clean, dry, and free of any gels, sprays, oils, makeup, or lotion. A technician will clean and dry three small areas on your head, and then place sensory pads on the cleansed areas.
The technician will then ask you to cover one eye at a time while the vision test is being run. You will see either a series of patterns or flashes of light, depending on the type of visual electrophysiology test ordered.
Please visit these individual Diopsys® vision testing pages to learn more about these important tests.
