Comprehensive Eye Exam

Our eye exams review the total health of your eye – so you can see the world with acuity and precision. We start with a consultation to discuss your personal and medical history. We then use state-of-the-art instruments to gauge your unique ocular characteristics, finding an exact prescription.

We test for degenerative eye conditions and other ailments, ensuring your eyes remain healthy. Our optometrists are your partners in caring for your eyes. We diagnose and treat medical conditions of all sorts, including conjunctivitis, allergic reactions, cataracts, retinopathy, glaucoma, dry eye, computer vision syndrome, diabetes, and sports injuries.

Contact Lens Evaluation

Contact lenses are an excellent alternative to wearing glasses – though they are not right for every eye. Contact lens evaluations are important for your eye health. They help with:

  • Determing if contacts are right for you & your lifestyle
  • Proper lens fit & comfort
  • To ensure you understand the hygiene & safety prior to wearing contacts

A contact lens exam is always done after a comprehensive eye exam is performed to check on your eye health & gather a prescription.

Optomap Retinal Imaging

Here at Golden Optical, we provide the most up to date, and state-of-the-art technology in all of our comprehensive eye exams. At our office, we no longer need to dilate the eyes of our patients. (unless medically necessary)

Our Daytona Optomap is what gives us the ability to not dilate -the Optomap takes a photo of the back of your eye, giving us a 200 degree view. The Optomap provides us with an amazing comprehensive view to check on your eye health and aids us in detecting eye conditions and other diseases such as cancer, retinal detachment, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes are just the beginning of what this photo allows us to detect.
