About the Eye Exam
At Hughes Opticians, we designed our eye exams to be extremely thorough and comfortable from start to finish. As you enter the exam room, Dr. Kerry Harbeck will have you take a seat at our Topcon Auto Refractor. The auto refraction of this pre-screening gives Dr. Harbeck a general understanding of your needed prescription. He will also gather corneal measurements if you are interested in wearing contact lenses. Next, Dr. Harbeck conducts a fine-tuning of the auto refraction to pinpoint your prescription. The minute adjustments of this manual refraction continue until your vision is crystal clear. The doctor concludes with a health examination of your eyes that includes a glaucoma check, scan of the retina, optic nerve assessment, and a complete exterior evaluation. These preventative examinations have helped Dr. Harbeck find and treat everything from diabetes to cataracts to tumors. In many cases, these exams have saved a patient's sight.
A yearly exam with the doctor is a must for contact lens wearers, and all other patients should have their eyes examined every one to two years. With a warm sense of humor and more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Harbeck will ensure each visit is both comfortable and comprehensive.
