This content was provided by Dr. Nilsen "Our guiding philosophy is that we exist to take care of our patients. To do this, we specialize in medical preventive care. Checking your prescription is important, but that is only one small part of the eye exam. Your eyes are an amazing window through which we can directly examine blood vessels and look for signs of vascular or neurological problems without surgery or other invasive tests. An eye exam provides insight into the body's overall well-being. That is why we check blood pressure at annual exams. Furthermore, we offer digital retinal photography that is easy to do and provides a baseline for tracking your ocular and systemic health over the years. "
