Your Vision. Your Future.

Is your child having a hard time seeing the board in class?

Do you struggle to read fine-print in books and menus?

Regular comprehensive eye exams involve a series of tests that enable your Lacey eye doctor to check your eye health and vision. This type of eye exam can only be performed by an eye doctor, and shouldn’t be confused with the vision screenings given in schools or other non-professional settings.

Having regular comprehensive eye exams is crucial when it comes to protecting your eyes from sight-threatening diseases, and ensuring that your optical prescription is up-to-date.

A comprehensive eye exam can also reveal signs of a general health condition like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol.

Why Is It Important to Get Your Eyes Tested Regularly?

Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining great vision and eye health for the entire family.

During your eye exam, your eye doctor will check for any refractive errors or visual skill deficiencies that may hinder development or learning, and diagnose, manage, and treat eye diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration that can cause severe vision loss in adults.

Many of these sight-robbing conditions show little to no symptoms until they’ve already caused learning difficulties, significant damage to the eye, and/or irreversible vision loss. Routine eye exams ensure early diagnosis and treatment of these and other conditions.


What to Expect From Your Eye Exam

  • Glasses/contact lens prescription updates

    We'll provide you with an updated prescription so that you can see clearly. Some people require a new prescription every year, whereas others only need a new prescription every 2-3 years.

  • Evaluating your child’s vision for learning

    Conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia, and visual skill deficiencies such as convergence insufficiency can negatively impact your child’s learning.

  • Diagnosis & treatment of eye diseases

    Eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may show no symptoms until it’s too late. The earlier the treatment, the more effective the outcome.

  • Rule out signs of systemic diseases

    Common systemic diseases such as diabetes and stroke can first be detected in the eyes as part of a comprehensive eye exam.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Rouse and his amazing staff! I scheduled an appointment ... here because I had been having issues with my eyes for a couple of weeks. My Vision in my right eye was especially bad. I originally went to a different doctor who told me I had dry eye. However, I had a feeling there was more to it than just dry eye, so I made an appointment with Dr. Rouse to have him give me an exam and see if he thought the previous doctors diagnosis was accurate. Dr. Rouse took such good care of me from start to finish! He really cared about what I was going through and listened to all of my concerns. After completing a very thorough exam he determined that I had a lot more going on then just dry eye. It was serious and he knew I was scared. He told me to trust him and to know that “he’s got me”. I do trust him. I’ve never had a doctor tell me something like that before and it felt so reassuring to know that I was in such great hands and that I was finally going to get the answers I was looking for. He explained everything to me in detail about what was happening with my eyes and then immediately referred me to Sound Retina so I could be seen right away to start treatment. I was so scared and couldn’t stop crying but him and all of his staff were so kind and showed me a tremendous amount of empathy for what I was now faced with. For that, I will always be grateful and as long as Dr. Rouse is practicing, he will always be my eye doctor. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Dr. Rouse was such a nice and easy to talk to person.

As a former Dispensing Optician for Dr. Rouse, I was enabled to learn and grow more at this practice... than any other practice I worked for before or since. His passion for knowledge is infectious. His commitment to health and wellness is unparalleled. If you need a true comprehensive eye health exam, this is the ONLY place you should be going. You will NOT be disappointed.

Dr. Rouse is very good and takes his time with you during the eye exam. He has a great personality t... hat makes you feel comfortable. To be honest, if you are on a fixed income, their prices for glasses are too high and you may find you want to take your prescription some place else but this is a good eye Doctor!

Want to highly recommend Dr Craig Rouse, optometric physician in Lacey. Here's why: We had an eye em... ergency-of course, on a Sunday morning. A poke in the eye, resulting in Intense pain. Urgent care visit, confirming that part of the cornea was scraped out, received antibiotic scrip and told to contact ophthalmologist on Monday. Also received list of "eye care resources." After an hour back home, with pain increasing, started calling eye drs on list who provided "off-hours emergency care." Kept getting office closed message with "hit this # for emergency care," we did, and they all all returned to initial office closed, hit this # for emergency" message. Even the "big" local eye dr office. Until we called Rouse Eye Care Center. He answered himself, met us at his office within 20 minutes, examined eye, provided pain treatment, drops to keep eye lubricated, and a stronger antibiotic, and scheduled a Wed am follow up visit. Wow! Pain stopped immediately, used antibiotic and lubrication eye drops, and eye was healed by Wed am visit. Woohoo!

Comprehensive Eye Exams FAQs

Is a comprehensive eye exam the same as a vision screening?

No. Vision screenings like the one performed for children in school or at optical-only stores only check for 20/20 vision. They do not check for the presence of sight-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts. They also do not check for visual skill deficiencies such as problems with visual tracking or processing. Comprehensive eye exams are more thorough and use advanced equipment to evaluate your vision and eye health.

How often should I get an eye exam?

Eye doctors usually recommend that you come in for a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. This ensures that your glasses or contact lens prescription stays up to date and that signs and symptoms of developing eye conditions are caught early before they cause lasting damage.

When should I bring my child in for their first comprehensive eye exam?

A child’s first eye exam should take place at age 6 months. It’s important not to delay eye exams for young infants and children as some early eye problems can affect vision for life. Detecting vision problems early can keep a minor issue from becoming something serious (and more challenging to treat).
