Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. But seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp.

Seriously THE BEST eye doctor ever! My two year old had a referral to a different eye doctor but they were booked out almost a year. I am so glad I called Hopkins Eye Center because they were able to get him in the next week. Dr.Mears is the absolute best doctor for my son. She knew exactly how to speak to him and treated the exam like a game for him. She even got on the floor with him so they could play "eye games". He was in love. They let him run around the office to get his energy out while I picked out his glasses. I have never seen him leave a doctor's office with such glee and giddiness. The entire staff was welcoming, warm and showered him with attention. I only wish they were a pediatrician office as well!!
