Eye Treatment Philadephia

General Optometry Services

Optometrists provide comprehensive eye exams and eye care for a variety of individual needs. General optometry care often ranges from prescribing eyewear to treating eye conditions and diseases. When necessary, an optometrist will refer you to another eye specialist for treatment of specific conditions or diseases. For example, if your optometrist detects cataracts in your eyes, he will refer you to a cataract surgeon for further evaluation and treatment. At Hendrix Vision, we provide a full line of general optometry services to suit your individual needs.

Our friendly staff provides personalized service, and is happy to assist you with imparting beneficial knowledge on preventative and advanced eye care. At Hendrix Vision, we also pride ourselves in the ability to help you choose the ideal eyewear for your eyes and lifestyle. We provide comprehensive eye exams, and we also prescribe eyewear. Furthermore, we can treat a range of eye conditions and diseases.

Getting an annual or bi-annual examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist prevents eye disease. At Hendrix Vision, you’ll be assessed for visual acuity by reading letters or numbers on a wall. Next, you’ll receive dilation and a complete eye exam for diseases like cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration. You can also protect your eyes throughout the year by eating foods with antioxidants and Omega 3 fatty acids, wearing sunglasses to protect eyes from UV rays, and wearing goggles during tasks or jobs that may endanger eye.

The doctors of optometry at Hendrix Vision are trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage disorders that affect the eye or vision. We offer a wide range of services to best suit your individual needs, and we also take the time to answer any questions that might be of concern.

Eye Health Exam:

A comprehensive eye exam can take an hour or more, depending on the number and complexity of tests required to fully evaluate your vision and the health of your eyes. Sample tests include visual acuity, retinoscopy, pupil dilation, glaucoma test, refraction, and cover tests. Whether you have dry eyes, pink eye, nearsightedness, astigmatism, eye allergies, glaucoma concerns, macular degeneration, or simply want better-looking eyewear, Hendrix Vision Center is here for your needs.


Contact Lens Exam:

In most cases, an eye health exam does not include a contact lens fitting, and therefore you will not be given a contact lens prescription at the end of a routine eye exam. However, there are exceptions: If you already wear contact lenses, and the lenses were fitted by the same eye doctor who is performing your eye health exam, he or she may issue you an updated contact lens prescription at the end of your eye exam. At Hendrix Vision Center, we will ensure that you receive the proper contact lens exam at your request.


Adult and Child Eye Screening:

Adult and child eye screenings are available at Hendrix Vision Center, as well. These screenings are efficient and cost-effective, and exist to identify children and adults with visual impairment or eye conditions that are likely to lead to visual impairment so that a referral can be made to an appropriate eye care professional for further evaluation and treatment. Our adult and child eye screening will not diagnose exactly what is wrong with your eyes; however, it will help determine whether an appointment with an ophthalmologist or optometrist for a more comprehensive dilated eye examination is necessary.


Designer Glasses and Sunglasses:

Hendrix Vision Center offers a dynamic array of designer glasses and sunglasses for affordable prices. Whether you are looking for fashionable or practical frames, we offer a full line of designer frames and eyewear to fit your fashion and lifestyle. Our staff will help you explore the optical brands we carry and help you find your perfect pair of glasses that suit your lifestyle and your budget.
