This post is sponsored by Total Vision Eyecare

Whether you’re in need of an eye exam, new glasses, contacts, or have an eye health concern, there’s a fresh option in Rochester for all your optical needs: Total Vision Eyecare.

We recently visited their new clinic and optical boutique, and have the scoop on everything you need to know to make Total Vision Eyecare your family’s choice for eyecare and eyewear.

Comprehensive Care

With over 10 years of experience in optometry, Dr. Addison has a wealth of knowledge and skill in caring for eyes of all ages. He treats everything, including glaucoma, red eyes, eye emergencies, and much more.

Total Vision Eyecare recommends that all children have a comprehensive eye exam before starting any level of school, and ideally by the age of 3. While school screenings are useful tools in detecting certain types of refractive errors, they may miss the need for vision correction (glasses) in about half of all cases. A comprehensive exam with an optometrist is the surest way to make sure your child’s vision is up to par. As a dad himself, Dr. Addison has made it a priority to invest in technology to make the exam experience more enjoyable for kids. Their digital refraction suite makes for a quick and easy exam, and the eye chart features kid-friendly movies and images.

But the technology isn’t just for kids. Total Vision Eyecare has specialized options for adult exams as well, including a glaucoma screening that doesn’t use the dreaded air puff, and an optional eyedrop-free photo/3D scan of the retina as an alternative to the standard eye dilation. Dr. Addison also excels at hard-to-fit contact lens cases, so you can be sure to love the lenses you are wearing.

Style and Quality

Total Vision Eyecare offers all the top name brands for kids, including: Disney, Nike, PUMA, Ray Ban, Nano & Nano Baby. Nano & Nano Baby are top-quality options for active littles. They are indestructible, and have a 2 year frame warranty, plus a 2-in-1 option: Standard frames for the classroom and a headband for play.

They also carry a wide range of adult frame lines, including: Ray Ban, Tom Ford, Tiffany, Gucci, Kate Spade, and Oakley, just to name a few. You’ll find a great selection with something for everyone, whether you’re looking for unique frames, high-end names, or budget-savvy options that won’t break the bank.

Total Vision Eyecare has your family’s safety in mind. Due to COVID-19, appointment bookings have been extended to allow for limited office capacity and proper safety precautions. They follow CDC-approved disinfection of exam rooms, frames, and common areas. Other precautions include a temperature check prior to all appointments and COVID screening questions.

Blue Blocking Lenses

For kids and adults alike, we’re all experiencing an increase in the amount of time we are doing school, work, and social life virtually, via screens. This increase in the amount of blue light our eyes are receiving can have negative effects on our eyes. Total Vision Eyecare offers competitive pricing on Eyezen lenses– lenses specially designed to reduce digital eye strain for kids and adults.

Back To School Lens Package

The start of the new school year means it’s time to make sure your child has everything they need to be successful, including appropriate vision correction and eyewear.

Total Vision EyeCare is offering a special Back To School Lens Package to get the school year started off right:

Premium Trivet lenses with standard anti-glare for $119, or add blue blocking technology with premium anti-glare to protect your kiddo’s eyes during screen usage for $50 more (18 years of age and under only. Cannot be combined with vision plans or other discounts).  

Family-Owned Business

A Midwest native, Dr. Addision has lived in the Rochester area for 5 years with his wife Carla, and their daughter. They couldn’t imagine a better place to establish their practice and call home. Together, they run their business, striving to make you feel right an home while preparing you to look and see your absolute best.
