Where to Have a Local Eye Exam

Where to Have a Local Eye Exam

It's essential to have a comprehensive eye exam once per year with an optometrist to check on your eye health and vision. However, finding the time for this appointment can be difficult, especially if you’re enduring traffic to get there in the middle of the workday. 

Between battling the commute to work and your kids’ school and beyond, there never feels like there is much time left for preventive eye care. But you need an eye exam to update your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, so this appointment is critical. 

Fortunately, there are a variety of optical stores throughout the U.S. that provide the eye care services you need outside of the 9 to 5 schedule. As someone who needs a local eye exam, here’s where you can start: 


Where can I get local eye exams?

Does For Eyes offer walk-in eye exams near me?

Our eye care teams work hard to accommodate your busy schedule. To make it easier to book an eye appointment, many of our locations offer walk-in eye exams. If you’re curious if this is an option in your area, give your local For Eyes a call and ask.

Generally, we’ll have you come into the optometrist’s office at your convenience (within our business hours) and request to see an eye doctor. If the eye doctor is available, we’ll sign you in and prepare you for your appointment. 

If you walk-in, please make sure to bring your vision insurance and valid photo I.D. It will speed up the process and prevent you from waiting any longer than necessary. You might also bring a list of any vision loss symptoms you’ve had to keep your eye doctor informed during the exam.
