Eye Exams in Milwaukee
Ensure You Are Seeing Clearly
An eye exam from one of our Milwaukee optometrists is the best way to understand the health of your eyes and make sure you have the clearest vision possible. We also have a large selection of glasses to prescribe once the examination is over.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam at Grange Vision, we will determine what the best possible option for you and your family is by asking you about:
- Symptoms: any issues can help us narrow down what is impairing your sight
- Medications: current or previous medicine is necessary for a diagnosis
- Work environment: different types of jobs create different types of stress on the eyes
- Overall health: lifestyle and wellbeing can give insight into the best treatment
Some eye illnesses are slow developing with limited pain and no initial vision loss. Grange Vision wants to protect your eyesight and if we can detect something early there is a much lower risk of permanent damage.

How often do you need to get an eye exam?
Grange Vision recommends an eye exam every year, but based on your health, age and job you may need more frequent visits. Anyone who currently wears contacts or glasses should be visiting Grange Vision annually. After you or your child has their exam, you can browse our large selection of great-looking frames.
The American Optometric Association provides recommended eye exam schedules for adults and children.

Just as with children, any adults who wear glasses or contacts should be meeting with Grange Vision annually. Even if you have never had eye problems, it’s smart to visit an eye doctor at least every two years.
As we grow older there are new threats to our eyesight. These include changes in blood pressure, certain prescription medications, and simple heredity. The AOA recommends annual eye exam for people over the age of 60.
Vision and learning are more connected than most people realize. Poor eyesight creates roadblocks for reading, writing and comprehension. Almost everything explained in a classroom is presented in some sort of visual medium and poor vision makes learning challenging. But before school is even a consideration, a child’s eyes must grow accordingly just like everything else.
A parent should schedule an eye exam based on AOA’s recommendations:
- Birth to 24 months: eye exam at 6 months
- 2 to 5 years: eye exam at age 3
- 6 to 18: every two years
These guidelines are only for children without any eye risk, which requires a complete examination to check for development problems with the eyes. Any child at risk should have more frequent eye exams.
