COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAM
A comprehensive eye exam not only evaluates your visual system for a glasses or contact lens prescription but also examines your eye health.It is a fundamental part of preventative medicine. A comprehensive eye exam has the power to uncover systemic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, an impending stroke and even cancer. Linden Family Eye Care is committed to your full body health. We work closely with local physicians and specialists to coordinate comprehensive care for each patient.
