The Lifelong Vision Partnership (LVP) exam is the flagship exam at Capstone Vision. During the LVP exam, your eyes will be thoroughly assessed from front to back using a combination of doctor expertise and the latest technology.
Watch the video above to learn more about the Lifelong Vision Partnership.
What To Expect During the Lifelong Vision Partnership Exam
After a brief conversation with a member of the Capstone team, you will be taken through a series of easy and painless tests (they often involve nothing more than placing your chin on a chin rest and looking straight ahead). These tests will allow us to assess your vision and prescription.
You will then meet with Dr. Emmert-Buck to examine your eyes. She will explain your test results and your current eye health.
You will also learn where you are on your natural vision timeline (see below) so that you can know what to expect of your vision in the future and what options are currently available to correct your vision. Questions are encouraged during this time so that you can be fully educated on your vision options.
Natural Vision Timeline
Teen Vision: Ages 13–17
As you grow and go through puberty, your eyes are changing along with the rest of your body. At Capstone Vision, we recognize the importance of creating a plan to get your vision to the best it can be. During your teen vision consultation, you will discuss your vision history with the doctor and decide on ways to make your eyes healthy and ready for LASIK or PRK once your eyes are fully grown. Come in for a consultation to get more information about your eyes and develop a vision care plan.
Once your eyes have finished growing, you become eligible for refractive surgery to reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts. Procedures like LASIK or ASA can improve your astigmatism, hyperopia, or myopia. Experience the freedom of a glasses-free life and explore the refractive surgery options available at Capstone Vision below.
As your eyes get older, you may notice that you are less able to focus on things up-close and in small print. When this happens, you may find yourself holding your phone or newspaper farther away from your face in order to see clearly. In dim light, it may be nearly impossible to read small print. This is called presbyopia, and it happens as your eyes age. At Capstone Vision, we can fix presbyopia by using an inlay or a procedure called Refractive Lens Exchange.
If your vision has dimmed in recent years—making things look clouded or blurry—you may have cataracts. Cataracts may cause you to feel uncomfortable driving at night due to increased sensitivity to light, seeing halos, and glare. You may also find you need brighter light for reading and other activities and need frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription. At Capstone Vision, we offer a permanent surgical solution to your cataracts. Cataract surgery is the most common surgery in America, and here at Capstone Vision, we work with you to customize your vision to your needs.
