What is Family Eye Care?
Vold Vision offers a full range of eye care services for the family. Eye exams conducted by the professionals at Vold Vision assess far more than just your visual acuity. While vision assessment is critical, your overall eye health is more extensive than the ability to read from a distance.
At Vold Vision, our advanced diagnostic technology enables us to check for serious eye problems such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and detached retinas. After diagnosis, our individualized plans allow for the most effective treatment for you and your family.
How Does Family Eye Care Work?
Eye examinations can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the extent of the exam. Patients under 40 should have an exam every couple of years, while those over 40 should come in every two to four years. If you work a job that stresses the eyes or if you take medicine that weakens the eyes, you may need to visit a vision specialist more often.
At Vold Vision, we conduct 360-Eye Exams to measure visual acuity and color blindness, test for eye diseases, and check the shape of your eye. The extensive exam allows for meticulous care for your eyes, preventing eye diseases or sudden vision loss. After your initial exam, check-ups will be personalized to your needs.

Who is a Candidate for Family Eye Care?
Regardless of your eye health, or if you have 20/20 vision or blurry vision, the experts at Vold Vision offer services for eyes of any condition. Vold Vision also provides treatments for family members of all ages.
Infants to Pre-Teens
Clear vision during developmental years is integral to a child’s growth. While schools provide vision screenings, they are often not performed by trained professionals and cannot diagnose most vision problems outside of distance vision.
Pediatric eye care at Vold Vision performs eye exams for infants through teens, preventing common eye conditions that can hinder your child’s development and schooling. Our InfantSEE program provides free exams for infants through one year of age.
Most kids will have an eye exam long before they reach their teens, but studies show that nearsightedness becomes more prevalent between 8-12 years old. The eyes do not reach maturity until around 18 years of age. During these vital developmental years, annual eye exams are recommended.
Vold Vision has designed a teen program to meet the needs of patients during these changing years. With advanced diagnostic tools to assess overall eye health, we can recommend glasses, contact lens counseling, and other vision health needs necessary to promote good habits for long-term prevention.
While the ages of 20-40 are often marked with good physical health, the eyes can still change and slowly decline. In this age group, common vision problems include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. There are many options at Vold Vision, including glasses and contact lenses; however, we often recommend laser vision correction surgery as a long-term solution.
If you are busy or have an active lifestyle, laser vision correction surgery allows you to see clearly without the hassle of dealing with glasses or contacts. Patients contemplating laser surgery for years often tell us they wish they had done it sooner.
Middle age is the time to enjoy life after the kids are grown or can function independently. Unfortunately, this is the time vision issues begin to occur the most. People in their 40s and 50s typically begin to experience problems with blurry near vision and glares.
Presbyopia or Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (DLS) is an age-related condition where the eye loses its natural flexibility. Active adults at this age may not be ready to succumb to readers, bifocals, or multi-focal contacts. Vold Vision offers several options, from laser vision correction surgery to other surgical alternatives, to help regain clear vision.
65 and older is the age when larger eye problems may surface. While cataracts, glaucoma, retinal disease, and other eye diseases can result in sudden vision loss, our technology, diagnostic tools, and advanced treatments help seniors at various progression levels.
For those 65 and over, our extensive treatment options can help you regain clear vision and reduce dependence on glasses and contacts.
