We truly believe in routine eye examinations so that you can see as clearly as possible. Once you have to get glasses or contacts, it is even more important to watch the health of your eyes. You also need routine checks to ensure your prescription has not changed.
To ensure good eye health and vision, we are very proud to offer the following services:
Comprehensive Eye Exams
A person’s eyes are about much more than just vision. They can reveal a lot beyond eyeglasses or contact lens prescription. This is why it is important for everyone, not just those with a history of vision problems, to visit their eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam.
Why Take An Eye Exam?
At Insight Vision Source in Chandler, AZ our optometrist not only examines eyes to find out any change in a vision prescription, but also looks for clues to other eye health issues, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retina problems, and may even discover early signs of diseases such as diabetes.
Specialty Exams From Our Doctor of Optometry
For those who have a history of vision issues, a visit to Insight Vision Source in Chandler is probably far from your first time seeing a Doctor of Optometry. In many of these cases, patients have a pretty good idea what they need but need an optometrist to fill in the blanks. At Insight Vision Source, we have a variety of options to fit various vision needs including
Comprehensive Eye Exam with Consultation
- Vision Testing to determine the level of nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism
- Eye Functioning Test to check for proper alignment and look for signs of lazy eye or other disorders

Contact Lens Exams

Nowadays, most people prefer to wear contacts instead of glasses. If you are interested in contact lenses, please let your eye doctor know prior to your appointment. During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses available and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.book your appointment online
Hard To Fit Contact Lenses
Do you find wearing contact lenses impossible? Are your regular contacts painful or constantly uncomfortable? You are not alone. Due to a variety of factors such as individual eye shape, specific conditions, impairments, or the aftermath of surgery, some patients are considered to have more difficulty wearing contacts than others.book your appointment online
Macular degeneration is a deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them through the optic nerve from the eye to the brain for processing. The macula, or the center of the retina, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and controls our ability to see and process information.book your appointment online
Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.
If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, we will perform a full evaluation.book your appointment online
LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.
LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.book your appointment online
Dry Eye Treatment
Insight Eyecare & Eyewear is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.
Do you live in the Chandler area of Arizona and suffer from problems with dry eyes? Here at Insight Eyecare & Eyewear, we can help you with that. We have a long history of treating a plethora of eye conditions including dry eye. We utilize the LipiFlow procedure to help patients just like you in the greater Chandler area find lasting relief from dry eye.
Pediatric Eye Exams
Here at Insight Eyecare & Eyewear, we are proud to offer pediatric eye examinations. Children should have their first eye exam around the age of six months. If the first exam finds that their eyes are healthy, they won’t need another appointment until they are between the age of two and three.
Although many schools offer annual eye exams, they are not complete visual exams and the results can be inaccurate. For this reason, you should schedule yearly or bi-yearly examinations to ensure that your child’s eyes are healthy and that he or she can see clearly.book your appointment online
There are many different styles, shapes, and materials to choose from when picking out the best frames for your lenses. This can sometimes be an overwhelming and difficult decision, but at Insight Eyecare & Eyewear, we are happy to help you find the best frames for your specific wants and needs. Although frames are primarily a style choice, they are also affected by prescription strength. High-index prescriptions may limit which frames can support your lenses, but our friendly opticians are happy to help you find the right solution!
Frame material is also an important choice that needs to be made when choosing your frames. For our patients with metal allergies, we offer several options in alternative frame materials such as plastic or acetate. Since plastic and acetate frames are generally not adjustable, it is crucial to get the proper fit. Stainless steel frames are also an option as it tends to be less irritating than other metals for those with sensitive skin. Titanium is another alternative, and they are incredibly lightweight as well as durable and hypoallergenic.book your appointment online

Contact Lenses vs Traditional Glasses
If your vision is not perfect, you will likely want to correct it so that you can view objects without difficulty. Contact Insight Eyecare & Eyewear in Chandler to make an appointment with our optometrists for an evaluation. Our optometry team will assist in helping you select glasses or contacts that meet your lifestyle needs. Here is some information to help you determine whether traditional glasses or contact lenses would suit your needs appropriately.
Decide Upon the Look You Wish to Project
Some people enjoy wearing traditional glasses and use their frames as an accessory to accentuate their overall appearance. With so many frames available to select from, you can match your frames to outfits you wear or to offset your facial features flawlessly. Other people wish to keep their faces clear of glasses and opt for contacts instead, giving them a polished appearance while still being able to see well.
Know When You Need Vision Correction Most
The actions that you take on daily makes a difference in which type of vision correction tool to select for usage. If you regularly engage in strenuous activities, you may want contact lenses so that you do not put the eyeglass frames at risk for breakage. If you suffer from allergies or work in an area where dust is abundant, you may want to forego contact lenses altogether and choose eyeglasses to protect your eyes from debris.
Our optometry team can assist in helping you pick out the appropriate visionary tools for your needs. We have an array of choices available, including eyeglasses with transitional lenses and sports goggles for times when eye protection is necessary.
Let Our Optometrists Help You with Your Selection
Before you select eyeglasses or contact lenses as your vision correction tool, you will need an appointment with our optometrists to determine the prescription strength necessary for your eyes. During this appointment, our practitioners will alert you about any restrictions you may have before choosing the desired eyewear. In most cases, contact lenses are available for patients, but if you have an eye health difficulty, it may be best to stick with traditional frames. Our optometry team will help you find the right frames for your needs. If you are a candidate for contact lenses, we can assist with determining which brand to pick.

Why Do You Need an Eye Exam?
Getting an eye exam is important for a couple of reasons. They take a look at the health of your eyes, for example, which can spot problems before they get started or become more severe. Eye exams also make sure you can see the way you should. If your vision is not as good as it should be, you can miss out on a lot in life. Fortunately, glasses can correct this problem and help you see the world clearly and sharply once again.
Getting the Right Eyeglasses Matters
You want to get the right pair of eyeglasses for your needs. They should give you good vision, of course, but that is not the only consideration. You should also make sure the frames you choose fit your face well and are comfortable in the kinds of situations you will be in during your daily life. For example, the frames should fit snuggly behind your ears, and be comfortable across the bridge of your nose. You can have them adjusted to some extent, but if they do not fit your face well, they may not be the right glasses for you. Some are too large or too small, or do not fit your face shape properly. Feeling good in your eyeglasses is important.
