Your Optimal Vision Is Our Focus
Clear vision is an integral part of a healthy, happy life, and the doctors and staff of Lake Eye Associates work together to help you enjoy optimal vision long term.
As with all health matters, the early discovery of changes in your vision is paramount for keeping your eyes healthy and sharp. We encourage you to visit your ophthalmologist regularly, so they can solve issues before they do permanent and sometimes severe damage.
Eye Exams Help Preserve Your Sight
Why are regular eye exams essential? With regular eye exams, we can help prevent or correct nearly all eye diseases and disorders.
For most people, a routine check-up and possible prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses are enough to put the world back in order. As we age or encounter changes in our health, other treatments may become necessary, but the goal of our doctors and staff remains the same: to keep your eyes healthy, clear, and focused on a bright, happy life.
What You Need to Know About Eye Exams
Routine eye exams should become a part of your general healthcare appointments, whether you have an apparent eye concern or not. Some ocular conditions can develop without symptoms, so an evaluation of your eye health could reveal signs of an eye disease that you didn’t know you had.
Adult Eye Exams
For adults ages 18 to 64 who are low risk or asymptomatic, we recommend that you have an eye exam at least every 2 years. We may recommend more frequent eye exams for adults who are predisposed to eye disease or have another medical condition like diabetes.
During an eye exam, the doctor will assess your overall eye health by asking questions about your habits and lifestyle, then dive deeper with diagnostics to view the internal and external structures of your eyes. At the end of the exam, the doctor will guide you on the next steps, whether that’s further testing, a contact lens fitting, or sending you to our fashion-savvy opticians to help you pick eyeglass frames.
Senior Eye Exams
Our experienced doctors know that as humans age, so do the eyes. If you’re over 65, we recommend seeing your eye doctor regularly, at least once a year. Maintaining a regular appointment schedule enables your doctor to monitor any changes to your vision and address situations before they worsen.
During a senior eye exam, we pay particular attention to signs of cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, while also ensuring that your vision is the best it can be.

“I noticed I had a problem seeing years ago and finally decided to do something about it. I thought I was going to need surgery on both my eyebrows and eyelids, but Dr. Terpstra recommended just the brows! She did such a great job explaining things and Lake Eye helped get my insurance taken care of. The healing process has gone very well and I can see so much better!”

“Been coming here 18 years … highly recommend!”
Bob Knorr, General Eye Care & Cataract Surgery
“I chose to have LASIK done after wearing glasses and contacts for 20 years. I love waking up being able to see immediately instead of fumbling for my glasses or stumbling into the bathroom to put in my contacts. The entire procedure was a breeze—Dr. Gutti and his team are knowledgeable and friendly. I wish I had done it sooner!”
