Medical Eye Exam & Wellvision
Routine medical eye exams are necessary for everyone, at all ages and stages of life. Using the latest technology and advanced diagnostics, Drs. Alireza and Sana Somji will inspect your eyes thoroughly to detect or rule out an ocular condition. The early signs of eye disease, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, can only be identified during a professional eye exam. If you are diagnosed with an eye disease, we will monitor and manage it to prevent vision loss.
Technological advances enable the earlier and more precise diagnosis of eye disease. We keep up with medical progress and technology in our Sugar Land, TX. Depending upon your needs, we may use procedures such as retinal scanning and digital imagery.
As a family-friendly practice, we will evaluate the visual system of all members of your family, at all ages. With kids, a pediatric eye exam can spot an undetected vision condition that may interfere with learning and child development. Drs. Alireza and Sana Somji are pros at checking kids’ eyes – so they have a pleasant, positive experience visiting the eye doctor.
Checking for sharp visual acuity is an important part of every eye exam. During a Wellvision eye exam, Drs. Alireza and Sana Somji will perform refraction to measure and determine your vision prescription. If you need vision correction, he will prescribe an accurate and detailed prescription for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.
Wellvision Eye Exams
An eye exam is recommended yearly for everyone. If you are not generally in good health, have a family history of ocular disease or diabetes, or you are currently on medication that could cause side effects on your eyes, then eye care experts recommend evaluations that are more frequent.
At Horizon Eye Care & Optical, our optometrist provides through WellVision eye exams in our Sugar Land office. These examinations consist of much more than a quick assessment of your vision. Our eye doctor will perform a refractive exam and check your vision comprehensively to see if you need prescription eyewear or to confirm your vision prescription.
In addition to vision testing, we will inspect your eyes closely for any signs of an ocular health problem, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, retinal tears or holes, and diabetic retinopathy. If we notice that you have signs of any of these eye diseases, you will be instructed to book a follow-up comprehensive eye exam in order to design an effective treatment plan.
Along with looking for eye disease, your eye exam in Sugar Land serves as an important medical diagnostic assessment. It can reveal the presence of an undiagnosed health condition, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, because all of these conditions can appear on the inner tissues of your eyes. Therefore, a WellVision eye exam accomplishes three important functions:
- It can help you see clearly
- It can detect signs of many common health conditions
- It can diagnose or rule out eye disease
If you have vision insurance, your routine WellVision eye exam in Sugar Land will usually be covered once a year.
We encourage all of our patients to be proactive and preventative about vision! Taking care of your eyes should always be an essential part of your regular healthcare regimen.

Eyeglasses and contact lenses both need to be fit correctly to do their job well! We will ensure that your vision prescription is precise and up-to-date. In addition, our eye doctor will perform contact lens eye exams to check for any pre-existing eye conditions that could affect your ability to wear contacts.
Drs. Alireza and Sana Somji will measure your eyes to fit you with the ideal type of contact lenses for the shape of your eye and vision condition. When fit properly, contacts can offer great vision benefits. If you have a hard-to-fit vision condition, such as keratoconus, high myopia, or an irregular cornea, Drs. Alireza and Sana Somji will take as much time as necessary to make sure that you enjoy comfortable vision with contact lenses. We also specialize in fitting patients with ortho-k lenses, such as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT).
The perfect eyeglasses must support your vision prescription, feel comfortable on your face, and flatter your appearance. When it comes to selecting the perfect pair of frames from our optical collection, our Sugar Land, TX, staff is experienced and knowledgeable about how to make the right choice.
