Your Vision. Your Future.

Is your child having a hard time seeing the board in class?

Do you struggle to read fine-print in books and menus?

Regular comprehensive eye exams involve a series of tests that enable your Lions Head Condos eye doctor to check your eye health and vision. This type of eye exam can only be performed by an eye doctor, and shouldn’t be confused with the vision screenings given in schools or other non-professional settings.

Having regular comprehensive eye exams is crucial when it comes to protecting your eyes from sight-threatening diseases, and ensuring that your optical prescription is up-to-date.

A comprehensive eye exam can also reveal signs of a general health condition like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol.

Why Is It Important to Get Your Eyes Tested Regularly?

Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining great vision and eye health for the entire family.

During your eye exam, your eye doctor will check for any refractive errors or visual skill deficiencies that may hinder development or learning, and diagnose, manage, and treat eye diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration that can cause severe vision loss in adults.

Many of these sight-robbing conditions show little to no symptoms until they’ve already caused learning difficulties, significant damage to the eye, and/or irreversible vision loss. Routine eye exams ensure early diagnosis and treatment of these and other conditions.


What to Expect From Your Eye Exam

  • Glasses/contact lens prescription updates

    We'll provide you with an updated prescription so that you can see clearly. Some people require a new prescription every year, whereas others only need a new prescription every 2-3 years.

  • Evaluating your child’s vision for learning

    Conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia, and visual skill deficiencies such as convergence insufficiency can negatively impact your child’s learning.

  • Diagnosis & treatment of eye diseases

    Eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may show no symptoms until it’s too late. The earlier the treatment, the more effective the outcome.

  • Rule out signs of systemic diseases

    Common systemic diseases such as diabetes and stroke can first be detected in the eyes as part of a comprehensive eye exam.

Comprehensive Eye Exams FAQs

Is a comprehensive eye exam the same as a vision screening?

No. Vision screenings like the one performed for children in school or at optical-only stores only check for 20/20 vision. They do not check for the presence of sight-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts. They also do not check for visual skill deficiencies such as problems with visual tracking or processing. Comprehensive eye exams are more thorough and use advanced equipment to evaluate your vision and eye health.

How often should I get an eye exam?

Eye doctors usually recommend that you come in for a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. This ensures that your glasses or contact lens prescription stays up to date and that signs and symptoms of developing eye conditions are caught early before they cause lasting damage.

When should I bring my child in for their first comprehensive eye exam?

A child’s first eye exam should take place at age 6 months. It’s important not to delay eye exams for young infants and children as some early eye problems can affect vision for life. Detecting vision problems early can keep a minor issue from becoming something serious (and more challenging to treat).

I was so impressed with Dr. Hoover. He really took the time to explain my exam and to answer all of ... my questions. He was knowledgeable & patient, and he made me feel at ease. I also had a very easy time making my appointment, was seen right away, and was met by friendly staff at each step of the process. I will be coming back!!

I had a fabulous experience with Vision 1st after trying them coming from another provider that left... a lot to be desired. Dr Hoover was thorough and explained his process really well. The staff went out of their way to make my current glasses as workable as possible while I waited for my new set. I highly recommend these guys!

I am very happy with Vision 1st. For some reason, my insurance network mainly covers big vision chai... ns with poor reviews. Then, I found this place. Dr. Hoover is extremely knowledgeable and a self-proclaimed eye nerd. All the staff were friendly and personable. They did not keep me waiting. I have never had vision problems, but I am looking forward to getting my first pair of glasses. The assistant helped me choose between about 10 options covered by my insurance. I know they will stand behind them and adjust them to my liking. My only complaint is that it's hard to get into the shopping plaza due to traffic.

I needed an emergency repair for eyeglasses another eyeglass store wouldn't and couldn't fix. These ... guys fixed them on the spot and didn't charge me even though I confessed I didn't buy the glasses there! These folks restored some of my faith in humanity. You should give them a chance!

Dr. Ferro is so friendly and kind, I felt very comfortable here and that my eye exam was very thorou... gh. I expressed my anxiety with some of the eye tests they perform and the nurse went slowly with me and made it quick and painless. After my visit Dr. Ferro even sent me a handwritten thank you card! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an ophthalmologist in Nashville, actually looking forward to my next eye exam for the first time!
