Book Appointment

Total Assurance With Trusted Experts

After 40 years of optometry in Eastern Washington, The Eye Care Team continues to provide premium eye exams for people of all ages. We treat youngsters and adolescents with our children’s eye exams and help many diabetic patients with their unique eye care needs.

Education & Prevention

Our eye exam philosophy is centered around 2 medical pillars: prevention and education. We continually implement new processes at the forefront of optometry to provide accurate diagnoses.

We treat the exam process like a classroom, keeping you educated on eye disease prevention and keeping you informed of your current eye health. We adapt new optometric testing solutions as the technology develops, but always keep one thing the same: our commitment to premium eye care for families in the Spokane area.

When to Visit The Eye Care Team

Regularly scheduled eye exams can be the difference between healthy vision and irreversible effects. Diagnosing eye disease early and accurately is the most important step in maintaining ocular health. An hour each year with one of our optometrists really does make a difference.

The American Optometric Association recommends that low-risk adults and young people receive a comprehensive eye exam at least once every 2 years.

Our patients over the age of 65 should receive an eye exam every year. People with pre-existing eye conditions or who are considered high risk should visit us at least once per year.

Diving Into the Details

We invest in cutting-edge eye care technology to get a better view of your visual health. Along with refining your eyesight and providing razor-sharp prescriptions, we want to survey your entire ocular system for eye diseases.

Comprehensive eye exams allow us to diagnose and help build game plans for managing a variety of ocular conditions like:

Understanding Eye Disease

Modern, Comfortable Eye Examinations

Today’s modern eye exams are non-invasive and hyper-effective. We explore your vision with a variety of tried-and-true practices combined with cutting-edge digital imaging. Advanced ocular photography techniques allow us to get a clearer picture of your eye than ever before.

We will have an honest discussion about your medical history, lifestyle habits, and eye diseases in your family. This will give us insight into what we could be looking for.

The Humphrey Visual Field Test checks the scope of your peripheral vision. Signs of weak peripheral vision can be an indicator of glaucoma.

The classic eye chart still tells us lots about your visual acuity. Best used for fine-tuning your prescription for corrective eyewear.

Ocular coherence tomography (OCT) is an incredibly detailed process that images the eye (specifically, the retina, macula, and optic nerve). Using the HD-OCT, we can see signs of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease.

We use the Zeiss Clarus 500 Ultra Wide Field Camera (Spokane location) and the Canon CR-1 Digital Retinal Camera (Chewelah location) to provide crystal clear images of your retina. This can help diagnose eye disease and identify any abnormalities.

With the iCare Tonometer (ic100), our patients no longer need to have the “puff” test for their eye pressure check. We’re making your eye tests less invasive with every step.

Complete Visual Confidence

When our eye exam process is complete, we want to make sure you feel informed and educated about your ocular health. The conclusion of an eye exam is a great time to ask any questions you have about your prescription or general ocular health. Our eye doctors will always explain the next steps and what we need to do to keep your vision top-notch.

Once you feel totally confident about your eye health, please feel free to browse our bountiful eyewear dispensary. Our opticians can help you find frames that look great and address your prescription needs.
