Comprehensive Eye Exams
Children’s Eye Exams
Since 30% of learning disorders are caused by visual problems, it’s important that your child have clear, healthy vision. We recommend a thorough eye exam once a year.
Optos Technology for the Diagnosis & Treatment of Eye Conditions
Your optometrist at the SPECS Quincy location is an exclusive provider of the Optos Optomap Retinal Exam, an ultra-wide field retinal vision exam. This revolutionary diagnostic tool allows clinicians to view a majority of the retina. The Optomap Retinal Eye Exam is a non-dilating camera that captures a digital image of the retina (back of the eye). The Optomap allows the doctor to capture a 200° high-resolution image of the retina in a single shot – without dilation – in a quarter of a second. It’s easy for the patient, takes just a few minutes to perform, and is immediately available for review with the patient in the exam room. Click here to learn more.
- Benefits of Optomap Retinal Screening:
- It allows for enlargement of an image to see a more detailed view of the retina.
- It takes just a few minutes start-to-finish, rather than approximately 45 minutes with dilation.
- You leave the office with vision intact, rather than with light-sensitivity and blur.
- It creates a more permanent record.
- The doctor can review images with patients immediately.

Eye Safety & Health Information
Your optical health is a big part of your overall health. You rely on your eyes to take in the world around you, but some conditions can lead to vision loss. Your eye doctor relies upon a comprehensive vision exam to identify and treat these diseases and conditions as early as possible. You need an eye exam as often as your health care provider recommends it or at least once a year. Click here to learn more.
