If your vision is fine, it can be easy to skip a visit to the optometrist. But regular eye exams are just as important as regular physicals.
At Choate Eye Associates, Dr. Walter Choate and his team offer comprehensive eye exams to protect your long-term ocular and overall health.
Our Goodlettsville, TN, office is conveniently located for patients from Nashville, Hendersonville, and other communities...
Vision Screenings vs. Our Eye Exams: What's the Difference?
Comprehensive eye exams are different from vision screenings, although we generally perform the two at the same time. A comprehensive exam typically focuses on the physical health of your eye. During your visit, Dr. Choate will check for a variety of concerns, including:
Protect Your Vision Through Routine Exams
As you get older, you are at an increased risk of developing these conditions. Through regular exams, Dr. Choate can often identify eye diseases and treat them before they permanently damage your vision. In particular, regular eye exams will help to diagnose glaucoma. Without routine care, this disease will often go undiagnosed until it causes major vision loss. In addition, with age, you are more susceptible to vision deterioration, such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. At your visits, we can monitor your eyesight, updating your lens strength as needed.
What Are the Benefits Of Regular Eye Exams?
Updating Your Prescriptions
If you don't have clear vision, our team can help assess your exact prescription using innovative digital imaging technology. Life should be lived with clarity, and updating your prescriptions can help you clear the fog of poor eyesight.
Overall Health Insights
They say eyes are the windows to the soul. They can also be windows into your overall health. The eyes can offer insight into health conditions you may be at risk for, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and certain cancers.
Peace of Mind
An eye exam is always a good use of time. Regular eye exams can give you peace of mind knowing your eyes are healthy and functioning as they should be, plus catching any potential problems in their earliest stages.

Doctors Recommend Regular Eye Exams to Promote Your Long-Term Vision & Overall Health
Everyone should undergo regular eye exams and you should schedule them more frequently as you get older. Eye professionals generally recommend eye exams every one to two years depending on age and medical conditions.
If you have a high risk of vision problems, you may need more frequent eye exams. For example, if you have diabetes, we will typically recommend at least one visit per year because of the increased risk of eye diseases.
We Accept Insurance and Financing
We accept most insurance plans at our eye care practice. If you have vision insurance, your comprehensive eye exam will likely be covered. Our office staff can consult with your provider to see how much coverage you will receive, then provide you with a quote for any out-of-pocket costs.
If you don't have insurance, we accept financing through CareCredit®. CareCredit offers monthly financing plans at low to no interest rates. This way, you can receive essential eye care without exceeding your monthly budget.
What Happens During an Eye Exam?
Each comprehensive eye exam usually lasts about one hour and includes a variety of tests.

I would recommend this office. My experience was great from the time I walked in until I walked out. The technician who did the initial tests and set up was very personable and thorough, as was Dr. Choate. He showed care and concern to ensure the best overall well-being for me and for that I am grateful. I had to have some additional tests run, and the techs through that process were also very kind.View on Google
Dr. Choate and his staff are so kind and welcoming! Dr. Choate is incredibly thorough and knowledgable; he really goes above and beyond anything I've ever experienced from an optometrist. The ladies in the eye-ware boutique are so friendly and fun! It's like picking out glasses with your friend!
