At Gwynedd Valley Eye Care, we are pleased to offer a wide range of optometry services for our community! Our experienced optometrist can provide you with thorough eye evaluations, determine if you need corrective lenses and your exact prescription strength, and our skilled optician will fit you with the appropriate eyewear, and help you pick out the most flattering pair of glasses for your face shape and skin tone.
Our new patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam. If you are unsure of your family’s eye health history, it’s helpful to research beforehand, so we can better evaluate your own eye health. If you have never had a comprehensive exam, don’t worry! All the tests and exercises are simple and painless.
Dreading Dilation? We get you.
Gwynedd Valley Eye Care utilized state of the art retinal photography that allows for a thorough evaluation through an undilated pupil. Although not a replacement for dilation – this provides a way to defer dilation to a more convenient time for most patients. Call us for more information. Click here for a short informative video.
Routine Eye Exam vs Medical Eye Exams.
Medical Eye Exams
Medical evaluating or managing medical conditions including but not limited to: Cataracts, Glaucoma, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Ocular Allergies or Dry Eyes.
- Ocular Emergencies
- Red Eye Visits
- Diagnostic Testing including Automated Visual Field Analysis
- Retinal Photos
- Optical Coherance Tomography
Routine Eye Exams

- Fit contact lenses
Ultimately what determines whether your visit is billed as “Routine” or “Medical” is determined by two things: the reason for your visit and the result of your visit.
Exams for medical care, assessment of an eye complaint, or a follow-up on an existing condition are billed to your medical insurance plan. Exams for an updated glasses (aka refraction) and or contact lens prescription are not covered by medical plans. These visits are billed to your vision plan or paid out of pocket if you do not have a vision carrier.
