How to Prepare for Your Appointment
Pre-Testing & Screening
Our team uses the most up-to-date diagnostic tests and screening technology to detect eye diseases, even their earliest signs, well before they affect your vision or day-to-day life. Pre-testing involves autorefraction, a pressure test, and a retinal screening. We’re also happy to offer retinal imaging: this excellent, much more comfortable alternative to dilation isn’t just hundreds of times more thorough, it also gives us a historical record of changes in your sight that helps us monitor ongoing eye health.
After pre-testing is over, the technician will lead you to an exam room, where one of our doctors will review your medical history, go over any questions or concerns you have about your eye health, and follow up on your pre-screening with a closer look. By having a scribe in the exam room, our doctors can devote their full attention to your ocular needs. That, and our use of cutting-edge technology, enables us to get your prescription precisely right the first time.
We’re proud to offer a tremendous selection of the most popular eyewear brands for your entire family, and our friendly and knowledgeable opticians look forward to helping you select the perfect frames for your face shape, sensibilities, and vision. For added convenience, you can peruse our online store to determine which frames suit your personal style. You can even let us know which ones you love right in the app, so we have a head start when you come in!

My visit was great. They were on time, explained everything they were doing, and reviewed the results of the tests. Everyone was very friendly. All of the options for glasses were explained, and there was no pressure to purchase the most expensive options like I have experienced in other offices. Overall it was the best eye doctor experience I have ever had. Great experience.
As usual, the experience was wonderful. Everyone was very kind and patient and wonderful. I have referred numerous people to St. John Eye Associates and will continue to do so. Thank you for once again exceeding expectations.
