Optometry is health care related to your eyes and vision. It's important to have eye exams even if you don't have trouble reading signs or books. In some cases, an eye exam can be lifesaving. Did you know that some health conditions can be visible in your eye and caught by an optometrist (eye doctor)?


Illnesses that can be detected during an eye exam include:

  • Glaucoma (damage to the optic nerve)

  • Potential stroke

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Sexually transmitted diseases

  • Some cancers

What is Optometry?

At Amoskeag Health's Family Eye Care Center, we can see patients of any age.

We will evaluate your eye and vision health and may recommend glasses or a contact lens prescription. 

Please call 603-626-9500 to
an appointment. 

Types of Eye Exams

Annual Eye exams can be performed on patients of all ages—even infants—to prevent permanent changes in vision. If needed, the patient may be referred to a specialist to provide further evaluation and testing.

We can also fit patients for glasses and contacts right in our Family Eye Care Center!

Annual Eye Exam

These exams are for patients who have acute eye issues. These can be made for same-day or scheduled appointments based on conditions such as: infections, sudden changes in vision, or injuries – but not for glasses.

Acute Eye Exam

As part of a Diabetic Eye exam, you will have medicated eye drops used to widen your pupils. Using a special magnifying lens, the eye doctor will be able to view the entire inside of your eye, looking for any changes that might develop from Diabetes and other conditions.
