Our sports vision Stanhope offices are convenient and offer hours that fit our patient’s schedules. Sports vision is an important exam that all athletes who compete should have done at least once to check their eyes for top performance.
Athletes need to care for their eyes properly and to ensure that they are seeing as clearly as possible. That’s why sports vision Stanhope testing can determine vision clarity in athletes and what necessary changes need to be made to enhance vision, if necessary. A sports vision exam is more involved than a regular vision exam. Our doctors test using specific standards to check for enhanced vision, depending on the needs of the patient. It tests for things like hand-eye coordination, perception of depth, and eye tracking. It can help improve performance and training. Tests include checking for refractive errors, ocular alignment tests that evaluate how the eyes work in tandem, and eye dominance. This is determined by having the athlete focus on objects as they move closer to tell which eye is dominant, which can affect vision.
Besides sports vision Stanhope testing, we also offer regular eye exams and a wide range of glasses, contact lenses and eye disease testing. Our facilities are top notch and equipped with the latest accessories and eyeglasses to make life easier. We have something for everyone and in every style. Our experienced doctor and staff know how to make patients feel comfortable when they’re here, and to make sure they’re treated like family.

Think about how deeply you depend on your eyes and your vision each day. How would you drive, read, work, and manage all of the other important activities of your day without your eyes functioning properly? Many of us take our eye health and vision for granted, not realizing that we should be taking preventative measures in order to keep our eyes and vision in good shape for the future. One of the most important ways to preserve your vision and keep your eyes in the best health possible is to visit our Stanhope optometrist for annual eye exams and eye care.
Our optometrists believe that you should be well informed and educated about your eye care. Therefore, during your eye examination, we’ll explain the purpose of the equipment we use so you can become more comfortable as well as knowledgeable about your eye care and health. When we examine your eyes, our optometrists use the most modern examination equipment available to ensure an accurate and efficient examination and diagnosis. The entire exam process can take an hour depending on the complexity of the problem. Each patient will be evaluated with a refraction slit lamp, intraocular pressure, and a retinal exam. Personalized to you, no two eye examinations or eyewear prescriptions are the same. Your comprehensive exam will also test visual acuity, eye tracking and focusing skills, as well as detect problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, crossed eyes, dyslexia, and color blindness. Our team of caring Stanhope optometrists will also check for eye disease during your eye exam, as well as assess how your eyes work together, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. Our office offers state of the art diagnostic equipment, including retinal photography and visual field testing. In addition to helping detect developing conditions, regular eye exams are also important to check on how your vision is functioning. If you use prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses, you should especially be visiting your optometrist for eye exams so that you can be sure your current optical prescription is up-to-date, and that your eyeglasses and/or contact lenses are functioning correctly and comfortably.
Once your annual exam is completed, our Stanhope optometrist will be able to give you an updated prescription and any recommendations for treatments or at-home care as needed. While you should always visit Stanhope Eye Associates if you are experiencing symptoms, annual eye exams are just as important even if you are not having specific symptoms at the time. Many of the most common and potentially dangerous eye conditions, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration develop in a manner so gradual and slow that many people are completely unaware of there being a problem until the disease is advanced enough to have done significant damage to the eyes and vision. It’s best to be proactive with your eye care, and even better to schedule your eye exam with Stanhope Eye Associates today.
