Sachem Eye Care provides much more for your eyes than eyeglasses and contact lenses!
Our optometrist Dr. Gentile, in Patchogue will examine, monitor, treat, and manage your ocular condition – so you reap all the lifelong benefits of lasting, quality vision. When it comes to choosing the best eye clinic for your family, you need to make sure that all your vision and eye health requirements are satisfied. To make it easy for you, here are the top 5 things to consider when choosing a first-rate eye care practice:
What are your eye and vision care needs?
- Do you need primary care, such as vision testing, eyeglasses, and contact lenses?
Or do you need more advanced eye care for ocular disease treatment? You should know the basic eye care services that you require, before selecting a specific optometry practice. (Be aware that every state has different regulations about the services that an optometrist is authorized to provide.)
In addition, a range of high-tech optometric equipment exists, and it’s important to verify that the optometry office is equipped with the best technology for your needs.
- What credentials and/or specialized training does the eye doctor have?
Diplomas, training credentials, and/or licenses should be hung prominently in the office or waiting room of every eye care clinic. If you have a challenging vision prescription or unique eye health needs, it’s important to verify that your eye specialist is qualified and experienced in your condition.
- How much professional experience does the optometrist and office staff have?
You want an optometrist who is knowledgeable and experienced, as well as an office and optical staff who knows how to provide ultimate eye care!
A top-notch office staff will be able to schedule you with the right appointments and help you understand your medical health insurance or vision insurance policy. Experienced opticians will make the best recommendations for eyeglasses that match your face and vision prescription.
- How accessible is the eye doctor?
Don’t compromise on quality or convenience! Your optometrist must be available for all of your patient needs, from performing vision testing and eye exams to providing management of ocular disease. Check the hours of the eye care clinic, and ask about how to get in touch in case of an eye emergency.
- Is the eyewear collection large and high-quality?
Your eyeglasses and contact lenses need to be durable, fashionable, and provide a good fit for your individual needs. Nowadays, there is a wide range of eyeglasses and contacts available. Many optional lens coatings and treatments are also possible, and contacts come in a variety of specialty types for hard-to-fit patients.
Why limit your selection to only a few types, styles or brands? Check to make sure that the optical collection offers a full inventory of quality frames and premium contact lenses for your whole family!
