Routine eye exams at our practices are an essential part of maintaining healthy vision and identifying eye problems. Yearly eye exams have been recommended as a standard for good ocular health.
A comprehensive, dilated eye exam, is performed in order to look for common vision problems and eye diseases, many of which have no early warning. In a dilated eye exam, the pupils widen, giving your eye doctor a clearer view of the retina and optic nerve.
One of our ophthalmic technicians will take a careful medical history and take measurements of your eyes to determine their focusing power and whether any correction is needed. These results are shared with the doctor.
One of our ophthalmologists or optometrists will review your eye measurements with you, explaining in detail what each measurement means. If you wear contact lenses, we will also assess them at this time. The doctor will also look into your eyes to assess any abnormalities and diseases including corneal disorders, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, etc.
You will have a chance to ask any questions about your eye and vision health.View Video

“My 8 y.o. son and I both saw Dr. Clark [Cleghern] in the Pell City office. Wait time for appt., was 2 days. Everyone in the office from front desk to Dr. Clark, amazingly friendly and very helpful.”
“My husband and I are very pleased after our visit to Dr. Clark [Clehern] in the Pell City office. She and her staff were very professional and friendly. I always need help picking out new frames and the lady that ordered them was extremely helpful and very patient with me as I probably tried on every pair in the office.”
“The perfect combination of efficiency, expertise, and caring!”
“The doctor was excellent and I was in and out in a hurry. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.”
“My husband and I are very impressed with the doctors, nurses, tecs, and the young lady at the Pell City office that orders glasses. Staff at both offices are kind, professional, and in depth in their care of our eyes. We are very grateful!”
“My 11 year old granddaughter and I had a wonderful experience at Vision First Eye Center on Lakeshore. The staff was ever so accommodating and doctors very professional providing in depth information to me about the results of her eye exam and, at the same time, relating very well to her as a patient. Actually we are returning for another visit there in March. Thank you to everyone at Vision First Eye Center on Lakeshore!”
“I have been going here for a few years now staff is friendly and helpful doctors are always professional I’d recommend vision first to anyone”
“Vision First is the place to go if you are the type of person who likes good doctors that treat you well and get the job done right the first time. This past visit I had to go back for a ‘glasses check’ to see why my glasses were giving me headaches and my right eye wasn’t focusing with my new glasses but was fine with my old glasses. They had the problem solved in no time and rewrote my prescription.”
“Professional, kind , helpful, answered all my questions to the best of their ability and when they didn’t they found someone to answer it for me. Highly recommend them.”
